Butler’s Creek FCE Report

Fifteen members of Butler’s Creek FCE club and three visitors met at the Extension office on March 11, at 6 p.m. (Visitors were Jo Ann Fann, Donetta Hurt and Carol Morris of Heart of the Home FCE club). Hostesses for the evening were Susie Henderson, Brenda Gregory and Vicky Faulkner.

The meeting was opened by President Vicky Faulkner with the poem “Buttercups and Daisies.”    Inspired by the lunar eclipse and springtime, Carol Magnuson gave a devotion entitled “God’s Artwork.”  Members and visitors responded to the roll call by telling one thing that makes you happy. The March minutes were read by Cindi Lindsey, the treasurer’s report was given by Debbie Crosslin, and the Sunshine report was given by Brenda Gregory.  All were approved as presented.
