Friends and Neighbors Homemakers meet

Friends and Neighbors met in September with members in attendance.

Shirley Sears opened the meeting with the reading of the club creed, the collect and Pledge of Allegiance.

Sears also gave the prayer, and Ann Ulmer led in singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Ruby Niccum gave devotions by reading an article called “Believers Purpose,” then reported the homemakers fundraiser needs volunteers to bake food for the bake sale.

Joan Davidson gave the health and safety report on the importance of clean living and how it deters heart disease.

Martha McIntyre gave the citizenship report on the importance of voting.

Georgiann Coons with the Family Nutrition Program attended as a guest. Coons and her family live in Seymour.

Her work involves meeting people who need lessons on the best nutrition for their families. She used a divided plate to show the proper size that servings of food should be.

She also talked about colas, sugar and reading labels on cans for sodium content. She said people should drink a glass of water before eating to help curb their appetites. When reading labels, if a word ends in ose, it’s hidden sugar.

Her job includes working with Anchor House, Provisions and anywhere food stamps are used. She also teaches basic living skills at Centerstone.

Coons said the best way to get rid of sodium in canned food is strain it and rinse the food with water then heat it. She also talked about white flour versus whole-grain flour. She said it was important to read labels. She offers nine different classes involving nutrition that are available to anyone.

When she was done, she made a pumpkin smoothie drink using canned pumpkin. She suggested everyone go to Pioneer Cookbook on the Internet for great recipes.

The meeting was closed in prayer. Carol Bobb served cherry fluff, butter pretzels, snickerdoodle cookies, coffee and tea.
