Eleven members of the Progressive CEOs met with Faye Honaker for their reorganizational meeting. Co-President Barbara Shiley opened the meeting with her meditations by reading “We’re Going to the Mountains” and “Giraffes Can’t Dance.”
Barbara led the group in some simple exercises for her motivator activity. Patty Gray reported that four members had attended the county picnic last month. Those attending were Patty Gray, Lynn Humphreys, Betty Jo McNeil and Barbara Shiley.
If any are interested in entering the writing contest or poetry contest, the deadline is Aug. 15.
Colleen Walton recorded 1731 volunteer hours for the club for the year.
The club members planned to meet Tuesday, Aug. 9 at 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Lewisburg Methodist Church to finish tying the six quilts which are for the Quilts for Kids Project.
Copies of the Member Code of Conduct were given to each member who were to read it and sign it. They will be taken to the Extension Office to be filed.
Barbara brought the traveling basket and Betty Jo McNeil took it home with her.
