Andi Hoover, West Virginian Extension Agent, was in charge of the program when the Progressive CEOS met at the extension office for their July meeting. She demonstrated her instant cooker by cooking a creamy basil chicken and tortellini dish. She showed all the steps and by the time it was done we were all eager to taste it. Needless to say, it was delicious.
President Patty Gray presided over the business meeting. She gave the Health Motivator report which was on iron. She reported it is found in red meats, poultry, seafood, beans, nuts and leafy vegetables. Eating iron rich foods help prevent anemia.
Our program in September is on Heritage foods. We are asked to bring Heritage food recipes next month and Patty will compile them in a booklet.
Kitty Loudermilk read the poem that is entering in the poetry contest.
Lynn Humphreys sent the traveling basket and Patty Gray took it and will bring it back next month.
Colleen Walton reminded everyone to come prepared next month to report how many volunteer hours they have.
The County CEOS Picnic is July 20 at Hollowell Park in Lewisburg at 10:30 a.m. It will be a box lunch catered by Fruits of Labor.
Our meeting next month will be with Faye Honaker and it is reorganization.
