Carol White gave a lesson on “Nourish Your Eyes” when Pine Ridge Extension Homemakers met Feb. 23 at Marge Patman’s home.
The lesson covered age-related macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of vision loss in the United States for people over age 60.
President Sandi Hall presided at the business meeting.
Two backpacks to be given to Child Protective Services were displayed by the committee of Aryss Beebe, Mary Ann Seany and Adrene Wunder. The backpacks, for a boy and a girl ages 7 to 10, included clothing, underwear, books and radios.
Norma Pollert gave the citizenship lesson on the Amish. While all believe in the simple life, groups vary as to amounts of electricity used. Changes are coming slowly, she said.
Hall will do the group’s Meals on Wheels in March.
The hostess gave devotions on “God’s Valentine.” She served a dessert course with a Valentine’s theme to 13 members. Mary Miller received the hostess prize.
The next meeting will be at 1:30 p.m. March 22 at First Presbyterian Church. Beebe will be the hostess.
