Noel Woman’s Club Meet­ing

McDonald County Press - - COUNTY -

The Septem­ber meet­ing of the Noel Woman’s Club was held Tuesday, Sept. 11. Louine Gard­ner read a beau­ti­ful poem she had writ­ten about 911 and our beloved coun­try. Af­ter the pledge of al­le­giance and Lord’s Prayer were re­cited, roll call was taken with 14 mem­bers present. A new mem­ber, Deby Hop­ping, was wel­comed to the club. Min­utes were read and ap­proved by Sec­re­tary Deb­bie Pow­ell. The Trea­surer’s re­port was given by Bon­nie Leonard.

A date was set for the Fall Bake Sale to be­gin at 9 a.m. Satur­day, Oct. 20, in front of Harps. Please come out and buy some baked goods and sup­port the com­mu­nity. All pro­ceeds from the sale will ben­e­fit causes in the Noel com­mu­nity.

There will also be an op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase the Club’s cook­book, “Christ­mas City Clas­sics,” be­gin­ning Oct. 1 and run­ning through Oct. 31, for half price or $5 each. There will be a lim­ited num­ber of these cook­books, so be sure to no­tify a mem­ber early to en­sure a copy, if you have not al­ready done so.

It was voted to do­nate a bas­ket for the Noel School Fundraiser and mem­bers are to bring kitchen items for the bas­ket to the next meet­ing.

A do­na­tion was also made to the Noel Pub­lic Li­brary.

Happy Birth­day wishes go out to Louine Gard­ner who cel­e­brates a Septem­ber birth­day.

The meet­ing in Oc­to­ber will be our Tacky Party, which is a ver­sion of Hal­loween. Ev­ery­one dresses up pretty tacky to see who can outdo the oth­ers.

The pro­gram this month was pre­sented by Barb It­tner about the Sil­ver Haired Leg­is­la­ture. Barb hap­pens to be the Mis­souri State pres­i­dent for this or­ga­ni­za­tion. Del­e­gates are elected from each of Mis­souri’s 10 Area Agen­cies on Ag­ing, for a to­tal of 150 leg­is­la­tors. These se­niors go to Jef­fer­son City an­nu­ally for a model leg­isla­tive ses­sion at the State Capi­tol. They de­bate and vote on five top pri­or­ity pro­pos­als to present to Congress. They re­turn to their dis­tricts and en­cour­age sup­port of these is­sues in­volv­ing se­niors. They also tes­tify be­fore the Mis­souri Se­nate and House re­gard­ing these is­sues. It was a very in­for­ma­tive and in­ter­est­ing pre­sen­ta­tion.

Thank you to the host­ess this month, Anita Bai­ley, who pro­vided won­der­ful re­fresh­ments.

Ev­ery­one is in­vited to join us for a meet­ing. For more in­for­ma­tion, please call Pres­i­dent Melissa Lance at 417-475-3599.
