Carolyn Krieger gave the program entitled “How Full Is Your Glass?” when Pine Ridge Extension Homemakers Club met May 23 at Norma Pollert’s home.
Krieger discussed the advantages of optimism and how to cultivate it. Optimists, she said, expect good things and are grateful. She encouraged smiling, which is contagious, and thinking of and helping others.
President Mary Ann Seaney presided, and 12 members responded to roll call by telling if they had ever attended the Kentucky Derby.
Aryss Beebe led in singing “God Bless America.”
Pollert gave devotions on Thomas Dorsey, who wrote the song “Peace in the Valley” while on a train ride through Indiana in 1937.
Refreshments were served to close the meeting. Each member received a microfiber cloth as a favor, and Mary Miller received the hostess prize.
The June 27 meeting will feature a tour of Schneck Medical Center’s third-floor rehabilitation center. Members are to meet in the hospital lobby at noon.
After the tour, lunch will be served in Suite 125, followed by the club meeting. Dues will be collected, and hostess dates for the coming year will be decided.
