The Progressive CEOS met for their Christmas meeting at Food & Friends in Lewisburg for a Dutch treat meal.
Patty Gray greeted everyone with her history note from the past. She said on this day, Dec. 8 in 1765, the cotton gin was invented by Eli Whitney. She thanked Thelma Berkley for making all of the arrangements for our meeting. She also had the meditations, which was taken from the last paragraph of Polar Express.
