Homemakers talk about flowers

Seymour City Extension Homemakers Club met April 1 at the home of Lorraine Gallentine with eight members attending.

President Nancy Hammond conducted the business meeting, and Mary Ellen Snyder gave the treasurer’s report.

Members answered roll call by talking about the kinds of flowers in their flowerbeds and how many and what kind they would like to have. Joyce Burbrink won the auction item.

Leadership chairwoman Marion Slade talked about President Harry Truman and how he lived modestly after leaving office and how much different it is now when a president leaves office.

Continuing chairwoman Doris Keyser gave some tips on cleaning wicker furniture with a paintbrush.

Volunteer chairwoman Janet Works said she had turned in her report for donations from the club for the past year. The total came to $586.09 and that included donations to the backpack program, the scholarship bake sale, Community Provisions of Jackson County and Anchor House Family Assistance Center.

Officers for the new year are Hammond, president; Gallentine, vice president; Vicki Tritle, secretary; and Snyder, treasurer.

Achievement Night will be at 6:30 p.m. May 14 at Cornerstone Community Church, and the meal will be $13. Those attending need to send their money to Snyder by April 24.

Following the meeting, Gallentine served refreshments.
