By Anita AdamsAdams 

The Pierian Study Club met February 9, 2017 at the beautiful home of Kathleen Hawkins deep in Sloan Community. The ranch home is beyond picturesque with it's stream of water and traditional landscaping. The Co-Hostesses pictured above were Patricia Warren, Sherry Ruddick, Gale Ivy, and Louise Williams (seated).

The program was presented by our own, Marcia Dyer. She spoke on creating home décor with beads and with her charming personality it was an enjoyable event. She taught us how to take a plain bottle and turn it into art! And then graciously donated one of her creations with a drawing and Celia Bell was the lucky winner.

The Valentine Basket which was being held during the drawing by Jo Ann Weik and 'TADA' she won the basket!
