We haven’t written any articles on our meetings since 2013 began, so we will catch everyone up to date with a summary of each month’s meetings. We had our first meeting in January at the Recreation Center and bowled several games. Some of the sisters ended up at Dairy Queen after the meeting ended.
The second meeting in January was a surprise birthday party for Irene Smith at StreetSide Grill. She certainly was surprised and everyone had a great time with a delicious lunch and cake. A downpour of snow brought the party to an abrupt end as everyone scrambled to their cars to get home.
February’s meeting was hosted by Mahala Frazier at FBC Whitesburg. The program was about the history of Abe Lincoln and was very enlightening.
The second meeting in February was a Valentine Dinner at the Methodist church catered by Ellen Compton. The food was delicious, and the company we shared it with was romantic for some of us (our sweethearts and/or guests).
March, we met at the Methodist Church again with Janie Frazier weighing our purses and giving prizes for the heaviest, the lightest and for some items found in the purses. We had our second meeting in March at FBC and had election of officers. A makeover was done on Sandy Banks by Mary Kay Sales Director Cheryl Bradley.
April took us to the home of Earlene Williams with Reagan Berry informing everyone of the steps and process involved in adoption. Founders Day was at the end of April.
May 2, the meeting was held at the Neon Library with board member Jeanette Ladd taking us on a tour of the new library and telling the history of the journey to apply for grants and building the library. It is beautiful.
The last meeting of the year was held at Here Comes The Bun Restaurant. Sisters brought potted flowers and numbers drawn to choose flowers. Janie Frazier announced her retirement from the Social Security Department and our new President Ann Reynolds spoke about our exciting new year coming in September.
