The Wallace Creek EE Club met Thursday, September 17 at their clubhouse.
Lynn Blankenship gave the program on the Pandemic Flu. The Swine Flu-H1N1 is predicted to become a pandemic type of flu this year world wide. She gave the symptoms of H1N1 and seasonal flu are similar; fever, aches, runny noses, sneezing, cough, etc. Wash your hands often, or use hand wipes or bottled hand washes. Cover your nose or mouth with your elbow instead of hands. If you get the flu, stay home until the fever is over for at least two days. When you go to the grocery store, use a wipe on the shopping cart handle. Have a preparedness plan in place; have food, medical needs, nonperishables, and emergency supplies in your home in case your family gets sick. Get your seasonal flu shots and when the H1N1 flu shots arrive get the shot.
The business meeting was called to order by Lynn. The roll call was "Do you plan to take the flu shot?" Most of the members said yes to both kinds. The minutes were read from the June meeting. They were approved as read. There were no meetings for July and August. Doris announced there were 52 who signed the register at the annual Ice Cream Supper in June. Imogene Hawkins gave the treasurers report. Marilyn Miller and Lynn Blankenship gave the county council report. The new officers were named.
