Cost of beans, cornbread, coleslaw and drinks is just a donation. Come out and enjoy the evening. This is our regular fall fundraiser. It helps bring unity by people getting together in the community.

Orpha Wardlaw was hostess for the Maysville Extension Homemakers Club Sept. 24. We did not have a business meeting in August. Instead we met in Bentonville at the Crystal Bridges Massey Museum. After a tour of their pictures of early Arkansas days we ate dinner at “The World Gardens”. We got for an outing like this once a year.
Melinda Crawley led us in singing “O, My Darling Clementine”. We pledged allegiance to our U. S. flag. Jewel Lukens read a poem entitled “My Father’sWorld”.
Melinda told how she managed canning tomatoes when she didn’t have a long enough day. She put them in cold water. The skins peel off just like they do in boiling water. Another helpful hint she gave was to use Windex to clean rings and other jewelry. Sylvia gave this helpful hint in cooking vegetables: Start the ones that grow underground in cold water (potatoes, beets and carrots) and the ones that grow above ground such as peas, beans and greens start in boiling water.
Orpha showed a cereal box she had cut off and covered with a waxy paper to store children’s little books in. She reviewed a lot of lessons we had in club meetings many years ago and showedsamples of decorations for sewing.
Thirteen members answered roll call by telling about their first grade teacher.
The county fair entries were reported and the club fair booth entitled“Eat From the Rainbow” received a red ribbon. Several of our members helped during the week to watch after exhibits.
Any of you who would like to use the community building please call Sylvia Tucker to get on the calendar. Her phone number is 479-291-4542.
We are planning a fundraising bean supper in Saturday, Oct. 17, to start serving at 6 p.m.The proceeds will be used to help pay the monthly expenses such as water, electric, propane and yard mowing. The bean supper price will be a donation of any size. The cake walk will cost 25 cents per walk and the pies and other desserts will be prepriced instead of an auction. “You all come” and enjoy the food and visiting.
The quarter package was drawn by Katherine and furnished by Nikki.
Our next regular meeting will be Oct. 22. Bert Ballman will be hostess and be responsible for a lesson. Each one is welcome to give a helpful hint or cultural art.
