SA­LINE COUNTY CLUB NEWS Lo­cal EH Club hosts Oc­to­ber meet­ing

The Saline Courier Weekend - - LIVING - Spe­cial to The Sa­line Courier

Sharon Ex­ten­sion Home­mak­ers Club met

Oct. 17 at the Sa­line County Fair­grounds. In at­ten­dance were 18 mem­bers and a guest. Hostesses were

Peggy Price and Patsy Wag­ner.

The meet­ing was opened by Ora Lee Yates lead­ing the Pledge of Al­le­giance. Yates, Pres­i­dent, con­ducted the busi­ness ses­sion as well.

Thought for the month was “Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neigh­bors.”

Lisa Mitchell pre­sented a de­vo­tional from Proverbs 27, 17, 18-24 and John 15-13, ti­tled “New hats and old friends.”

Her de­vo­tional con­sisted of dis­play­ing fab­ric with dif­fer­ent say­ings, which per­tained to friend­ship and things that friends do to­gether, re­mem­ber­ing friends from the past and how im­por­tant friends are.

Roll call was an­swered by the fol­low­ing state­ment: If you could trade life with any­one for a day, who would it be?

Dar­lene Horne, pro­gram leader, and also a mem­ber of Mas­ter Gar­den­ers, pre­sented a pro­gram ti­tled “Pre­par­ing Your Gar­den For Win­ter.”

Some of the items she men­tioned was mak­ing a sketch of your veg­gies planted and where. This is im­por­tant in or­der to ro­tate your crops. Old plants, weeds, de­bris all needed to be re­moved and ground tilled. If you have a se­vere prob­lem with weeds, in­sects and grass, after tilling, cover the area with black plas­tic. In Arkansas we can plant bulbs through mid-de­cem­ber. Daylil­lies and Irises can be di­vided through Oc­to­ber. Mow to mulch, rake or burn leaves. Leaves should not be left on the lawn.

Be­fore stor­ing tools, they should be cleaned, and sharp­ened. Drain gas/oil and clean. Don’t leave bat­ter­ies on charg­ers.

Vol­un­teer hours for the month of Septem­ber to­taled 1,069. Dates to re­mem­ber: Nov. 12, Hol­i­day Food and Craft Demon­stra­tions from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Sa­line County Fair­grounds.

Nov. 15 and 16, Sa­line County An­nual Craft Bazaar from 9-5 at the Sa­line

County Fair­grounds.

Eye open­ers were pre­sented by the fol­low­ing mem­bers. Bev­erly Gar­rett, Lu­cille Ba­gley Santa door hanger con­structed from cro­cheted doilies with muslin painted faces; Karen Mitchell, hol­i­day T tow­els with top­pers sewn to look like dresses; Sylvia Nal­ley, spi­der door hanger. Doris Whi­taker led the noon day grace, fol­lowed by a potluck and Bingo.
