The Nov. 12 meeting of the Williamsburg Community Educational Outreach Service (CEOS) Club was called to order by President Cassandria Perkins at the lovely home of Blanche Knicely. Roll call was answered with 102 motivation hours, 189-1/2 volunteer hours and 22 books read by members Barbara Deeds, Cassandria Perkins, Blanche Knicely, Fran Sigrist, Virginia Hanna, Ruth Kreft and Dorothy Hayes, and guest Laura Rose.
Devotions were given by Virginia Hanna on Thanksgiving of faith. The blessing was given by Dorothy Hayes, and everybody enjoyed the delicious luncheon presented by our hostess. The minutes were read and the treasurer’s report was given. Cards were signed by the members to be sent to Bruce Callison, Betty White, Humes and McClungs, and Calvin Nutter. The monthly donation of non-perishable items to be given to the Wellspring was collected.
It was voted to make a donation to fund for Bruce Callison. Members drew names for exchanging gifts at the Christmas party to be held at the Meeting Place at Alta.
The lesson, “Do You Know Your Neighbor” was presented by Blanche Knicely. Getting acquainted with members of your community helps us physically and mentally.
Four members, Shela McComsey, Blanche Knicely, Loretta Shirley and Barbara Deeds, attended the Greenbrier County CEOS Fall Workshop on Friday, Nov. 15. Everybody stated what they were most thankful for. Mary Mitchell from the Blue Sulphur CEOS club gave a very informative less on WVU Heart Talk.
