Kum Join Us Extension Homemakers Club recently met at the home of Mildred Carter.
President Linda Booher led the members in the Pledge of Allegiance and club creed. Roll call members told where they like to go to see fall colors. Olga Otte read the secretary’s report, and Thelma Greathouse gave the treasurer’s report.
Greathouse also talked about seeing the changing colors during her recent trip to Germany, Austria and Switzerland. She and family members visited James and Ana Rust near Starnberg, Germany, where they visited a castle. They also visited the BMW plant in Munich and saw Mozart’s home in Salzburg, Austria.
The bake sale for the Jackson County Extension Homemakers fundraiser is set for Nov. 3. Each club is to provide enough baked goods to total at least $25 or donate that amount. The goal is to raise at least $500 to provide a scholarship to a Jackson County senior who has chosen to study for a career in the health and human sciences fields.
The 100th anniversary celebration of Extension Homemakers will be in 2013. Anniversary pins may be ordered for $3 with orders to be in by Dec. 1.
Linda Booher read “The Green Thing,” which took a gentle poke at what it meant to be green 50 years ago.
Mildred Carter gave devotions — Life is for Living.
Olga Otte showed two of the blanket tops she had made for Lutheran World Relief, and Linda Booher showed 15 of the many Christmas stockings she’s making for shipment to military personnel.
Carter served ice cream and pumpkin rolls and gave boxes of Kleenex as hostess gifts.
