The Bend Chappel EE Club met Monday, April 11, 2011. President Mary Jane Dennis called the meeting to order. Nine members answered roll call. In absence of treasurer Fran Hulgan, Mary Jane gave the treasurers report.
Mary Jane opened the discussion as what to do with the old records and paper work. She said the minutes are the only records required to be kept indefinitely. Malissa Lemons made the motion to throw away 2007 and 2008 bank statements and other record books. Winnie Lou McCoury seconded the motion. The motion carried.
The annual May Event will be held at the Methodist Church with registration beginning at 9 a.m. and the programs at 9:30 a.m.
Mary Jane volunteered to be our delegate to attend the state meeting in Temple in September.
The basket for the silent auction was discussed and finalized. Marjorie McDowell will be making up the basket with some of her hand made items. We still need a donation for the door prize.
It was announced Alesha Rogers, San Saba High School Consumer Science Teacher will give the program in June. All members will be hostesses and the menu will be pot luck with Mary Jane furnishing the drinks. The meeting will be held at the Methodist Church in Bend and begin at 2 p.m.
Carolyn McDowell gave the program. She told how the various serving and eating dishes have enlarged through the years making our food portions much larger. Restaurants are serving much larger dishes. This makes our food intake more than ever before. This is not a good thing for our children’s health.
Marjorie McDowell came before the meeting to show anyone that was interested how to crochet and help those beginners through some problem areas. Marjorie crochets beautiful scarves, baby head bands and dish cloths among other things. She gave us many tips to help us along.
Marjorie will have several items in the silent auction at the May event. Be sure and come to bid on these and other items. This is an annual fund raiser for the EE clubs in the county. The money raised goes to help 4-H programs as well as other needs in our county.
