The Merry Moderns Home Ec Club met Thursday, Feb. 8 at Patty Pflug’s home. Homemade potato soup and sandwiches were served on that cold, winter day.
The meeting was called to order by President Betty Deputy, with the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag and the Homemakers’ Creed.
Roll call was answered by the seven members present by telling their favorite Valentine’s Day gifts.
Following roll call, Secretary/Treasurer Pflug read the minutes from the November, 2017 meeting and gave the financial report.
For the health and safety report, Sharon Falls talked about the correct time of day to take certain medications. For example, statins and blood pressure medications should be taken before bedtime. Nsaids should be taken at the onset of arthritic pain (instead of waiting for the pain to intensify). Medications for recurring heartburn should be taken 30 minutes before the evening meal. The report explained the reason behind taking medications at the correct times.
Deputy reported that the district meeting will be held on March 14 in Warrick County.
Drawings were held for new secret pals.
The theme for the club’s next fair basket was discussed and decided upon. The group will begin purchasing items for the basket.
Games were played and won by Shirley Chamness and Donna Bartley. The door prize was won by Cindy Johnson.
The rest of the afternoon was spent going through scrapbooks of our club meetings as far back as the 1960’s. The scrapbooks have been lovingly cared for by Jo Deputy. There was much laughter and fun as the group reminisced about the early years of the club.
The next meeting will be held on Thursday, March 8, with Shirley Chamness as hostess.
