Westside Eagle-Observer - - NEWS -

MAYSVILLE — The Maysville Ex­ten­sion Homemak­ers Club met at the com­mu­nity cen­ter for the Septem­ber meet­ing and lunch. Host­ess for the meal was Gwen Sin­gle­ton.

The meet­ing was called to order by Pres­i­dent Or­pha Ward­law. Vice Pres­i­dent Jane Wil­ber wel­comed ev­ery­one and led the pledge of al­le­giance. Melinda Craw­ley led the group in singing “Rheuma­tism,” fol­lowed by an inspiration on church bul­letin bloop­ers given by Oprah Ward­law. The eye­opener given by Jane was to place glasses that have stuck to­gether in the freezer and they will eas­ily come apart. Gwen showed some can­vas prints she had made from old fam­ily pho­tos.

The les­son was given by Gwen on “So­lu­tions for Say­ing No to Time Wasters.”

De­ter­mine your pri­or­i­ties be­fore agree­ing to new projects and eval­u­ate if they fit with your pri­or­i­ties. Some ques­tions to ask your­self be­fore you say are: Do you have the time? Will you feel pres­sured to get it done? and What will you have to give up in order to do this?

The min­utes were read and roll called by the sec­re­tary. Jane gave an up­date on sev­eral on­go­ing projects con­cern­ing the com­mu­nity build­ing and grounds. Rick Talbot talked to us about the pos­si­bil­ity of clean­ing the rock sid­ing, paint­ing the out­side of the build­ing and con­cerns with re­gard to the porch posts on the east side of the build­ing.

We heard re­ports on the County Fair by Robin Re­ichardt. Melinda Craw­ley re­ported we re­ceived a blue rib­bon and a $30 pre­mium check for our ed­u­ca­tional booth. A re­port was also given on our sum­mer out­ing at the Wooden Spoon Restau­rant in Gentry.

Melinda re­ported work­ing on the flower bed at the four­way stop by the Handi Stop and asked if we wanted to pur­chase mums to plant for fall.

Plans were made for the fall fundraiser bean supper and the date set for Oct. 26.

County Coun­cil will be Nov. 30 at the Gravette Civic Cen­ter.

The meet­ing was ad­journed with the Homemak­ers Prayer.
