Pine Ridge Extension Homemakers

Carol White gave a lesson on “How Full Is Your Glass?” when Pine Ridge Extension Homemakers met Sept. 22 at Carolyn Krieger’s home.

White said a study shows that optimistic individuals have a 30 percent better chance for success than pessimists.

She recommended an attitude of gratitude and finding opportunities in difficulties rather than difficulties in opportunities. Members were asked to name up to six things for which they are thankful.

President Sandi Hall presided at the business meeting. Roll call response was to name your best friend in school.

A brief report was given on the district meeting conducted in July. The spring district meeting will be March 10 in Scott County.
