A Friend in Need

Long time club member, Linda Cough, has had a house fire. They had no fire insurance, which means no way to financially fix the roof which was totally destroyed.

Linda has been a very giving and devoted member who really needs our help. We will be taking up a cash collection for her at the Harvest Dinner, next Wednesday, October 20, at 6:15. We hope that the club can really help out.

October Newsletter

It's the harvest season and I have eaten the last of the tomatoes, green beans and carrots. But I am sure enjoying the colorful Mums and Asters. I enjoy all aspects of the Fall season, from the cool weather to raking all the leaves...really!!

At last months meeting, Charlotte Grabowski gave a great and informative program on "Hummingbirds & Butterflies In The Garden". It was so nice to hear from one of own, thank you! Our club is always looking for speakers, so if anyone has a topic they are passionate about and would like to put a program together for next year, please let us know.


We will be eating promptly at 6:30pm that night because we have two presenters and a short meeting. Please bring a dish to pass and the club will provide beverages and all paper products for dining. The Wards will tell about their wonderful trip to France and share their pictures as well. Then Gloria Germain, a certified floral designer, will show us how to make those perfect bows for wreaths and holiday gifts. Please bring ribbon (wired, satin, etc.), pipe cleaners, and scissors. Pipe cleaners work best, but if you don't have any, floral wire will do. The dollar stores have a nice selection of wired ribbon for Fall and Christmas, and some even have pipe cleaners and floral wire.

Planning Ahead

The club will be making evergreen wreaths at our
NOVEMBER 17TH meeting as a community service project. It will start at 6:00 PM at the Pulaski Wesleyan Church this year. There will be a sign-up sheet at the Harvest Dinner, so please be thinking of a well-deserving community organization that would like to receive a decorated wreath. The wreaths were greatly appreciated by the organizations that received them last year. Here's a chance to use those bows we'll be making!

Sue Monson has volunteered to be our club treasurer. Thanks!!
Alice Ridgeway has graciously invited us to her home for our Christmas party (date to be announced). Thanks!!

See you at the dinner, Nancy Dailey
