The Pleasant CEOS Club met at the Mason County Library in Point Pleasant, on June 8.
Clinedda Austin was the hostess and served lunch. The meeting was called to order by President Austin, by asking members to stand and give the pledge to the United States Flag.
Mary Sue Kincaid presented the meditations by reading an articles entitled “Fill Me With Courage and Comfort” taken from a book called “If Teacups Could Talk” by Emilie Barnes. The article contained a quote by Nancy Reagan “A woman is like a tea bag, it’s only when she is in hot water that you realize how strong she is.” On the table were two beautiful tea cups containing tea bags. Each person was asked to take a tea bag to remind them of their strengths.
The June lesson “More Meat for Your Money” written by Sue Flanagan, WVU Extension Agent in Berkeley County and Cheryl Kaczor WVU Extension Agent in Marshall County was presented by Kincaid. The lesson gave four ways to stretch meat and three ways to save money on meat purchases and also contained a recipe for Skillet Pork and Apples.
Reports were given by the four educational committees. Kincaid, chair of the Purposeful Reading Committee had four books on display from the CEOS Library to encourage members to read. Linda Craig received an award for having read the most books in May and Faye Meadows received an award for books read over a longer period of time.
Other reports were given on the Cuddler’s Project at PVH in which CEOS members participate and the recent “Taste of CEOS” and plant exchange. Plans were made for the 2017 Breast and Cervical Cancer Awareness events, the July re-organization, the August outing and a bead workshop.
