Sauers Extension report about backpack project

The March meeting of Sauers Extension Homemakers Club was conducted at the home of Maysel Thomas.

President Rose Elmer opened the meeting by leading the Pledge of Allegiance and club creed.

Thomas read a devotion based on March Madness. The devotion had nothing to do with basketball, but its emphasis was on the pre-Easter season.

Grace Stuckwisch and Thomas gave a report about items collected for the backpack project. The club decided to purchase items for a boy for next year’s project.

Mildred Fenneberg gave a lesson on the U.S. Department of Agriculture and organic farming regulations. Most organic farms are small and produce naturally grown products.

Stuckwisch gave a lesson about honey and reported it never goes bad and will keep for years. It has no cholesterol and is the one food which will sustain life.

Members had a silent auction with many items available for sale as a money-making project.

The club conducted election of officers for the coming year. They are Thomas, president; Millie Otte, secretary; and Fenneberg, treasurer.

The hostess served a spring peach cheesecake.

The meeting closed with Thomas sharing a jelly bean devotion.
