Friends and Neighbors Extension Homemakers Club gathered in Seymour as a group to carpool to the Fall Fling, a countywide meeting of all clubs in Jackson County.
The carry-in dinner was hosted by the Kum Join Us club and conducted in the fellowship hall of St. Paul Lutheran Church in the Borchers area of the county. Eleven Friends and Neighbors members attended.
Olga Otte chaired the meeting. She introduced the new extension educator for Jackson and Washington counties, Joni Muchler, who greeted the group and expressed her joy to be in her present position.
Also recognized were the officers presently guiding the county organization.
It was reported that about $590 was made from the bake sale earlier in the month at Immanuel Lutheran School’s craft show. The sale funds an annual college scholarship for a graduating senior. Several members of Friends and Neighbors club contributed items.
Kevin Greene was the guest speaker for the evening. He is a business owner whose shop, Artistic Impressions, is on a main intersection in downtown Seymour.
Greene has had a lifelong interest in local history and presented a PowerPoint photo collection of various buildings called “Then and Now.”
After the close of the total group meeting, Friends and Neighbors members had an informal discussion about the December club meeting.
It will be conducted on a date other than the regularly scheduled meeting time due to the Christmas holiday and likely will be a luncheon meeting at a commercial establishment. Donna Abner and Charlotte Lovegrove are to make arrangements and notify members.
Those attending were Abner, Lovegrove, Ruth Bateman, Judy Carter, Louise Cox, Joan Hines, Rhonda Kidwell, Helen Lutes, Martha McIntire, Donna Patterson and Shirley Sears.
