Harrison Homemakers

by Sherry Pegg
Club Reporter

The Harrison Homemakers met outside in the sunshine at Gray Brothers Cafeteria in Mooresville for our October meeting. Our hostess, Judy Crouch, met us and assured us that seating was arranged, so in we went, our usual chatty, happy and hungry group. We all completed our meal with a piece of pie.

President Betty Jordan called the meeting to order and led the pledge to the American flag. Sue Click led us in the club creed.

The quote of the month was read by Viola Hall, our vice president: “Everybody needs a hug. It changes our metabolism.”

Judy Crouch shared a lovely devotion with us.

In attendance: Betty Jordan, Viola Hall, Carole Watson, Sherry Pegg, Rose Richardson, Judy Crouch, Rita Rust, and Sue Click. Absent was Thelma Fleener, who fell and broke her wrist, requiring surgery. We had two visitors, Sherry Pegg’s daughters Tamee Tennison of San Antonio, Texas and Stormy Caldwell of San Lorenzo, California who were home for a week’s visit.

With great sadness we report that another member has passed, Grace Bixler, who was a member for over 41 years. Grace participated with hard work and a wonderful sense of humor, earning honors for her canning and quilting skills. We all loved her and she never let us down, always stepping in when a last-minute emergency came up.

Secretary’s report was given by Sherry Pegg and approved.

Treasurer report was given by Carole Watson and approved.

New business – discussion about the funeral and food available for the family.

A letter was read from Brenda King, informing how we could participate in the Christmas festival in Gosport. We discussed ideas from club members, then decided to table discussion until next meeting.

Donations of warm winter clothing, socks, gloves, hats, jackets, etc. for homeless veterans in Owen County are to be brought to the November meeting.

Rita Rust taught a Health and Safety lesson on “The benefit of following the Mediterranean diet” This diet helps in weight management and lends to being heart healthy and also blood sugar management. The foods are light and delicious.

Sue Click gave half of the lesson on “Responding to Color as We Age”

With excitement we look forward to the November 11th meeting at Viola’s home. It is always so good! I think I will fast so I will be ready to indulge at noon. I bet no one is late!
