A minute of si­lence was held for the pass­ing of a dear friend, Irene Ride. The Motto: Make me strong like the mighty Wil­low tree that bends, but does not break in the high winds.

Roll Call: Velma read the roll call an­swered by eight mem­bers each telling us their favourite eat­ing or cook­ing ap­ple and why? Tea, dues, cal­en­dar money and Pen­nies for Friend­ship were col­lected. Sec­re­tary Barb Hewitt read the min­utes of the last meet­ing. Busi­ness aris­ing; mem­bers had brought jel­lies for a Thank You bas­ket to be de­liv­ered to a kind friend. Velma Eryou gave her Trea­sur­ers Re­port show­ing a favourable bal­ance. A mo­tion was made for Velma to pay all out­stand­ing bills. Oc­to­ber is Sun­shine month. Doreen and Scotty gave their re­port. It was de­cided to send Think­ing of You cards to two dear mem­bers who are no longer able to at­tend our meet­ings but al­ways in our thoughts. “Grow­ing A Health­ier You” A Com­mu­niqué’ from Norma Sher­rer was read and dis­cussed. The Dustin fam­ily made the Thanks­giv­ing Turkey Cen­ter­piece. It was very cute. The ar­ti­cle ended with a quote; “The only way on earth to mul­ti­ply hap­pi­ness is to di­vide it” New Busi­ness: Many of our mem­bers wanted to do some­thing to­wards the funeral lun­cheon for past mem­ber and friend Irene Ride.
