The Progressive CEOS met at the Extension Office with seven members for their October meeting. President Patty Gray opened the meeting by welcoming and thanking everyone for coming. Patty read one of Kitty Loudermilk’s poems for her meditations.
Lynn Humphreys gave the Health Motivator’s report which was on Selenium. Selenium is found in soil and pays an important part in proper functioning of the brain and thyroid. We get this through our diet of meat and grain services, which include fish, eggs, and bread. Brazil nuts have the highest concentration of Selenium.
A get-well card was signed by everyone for Mary Liz Richmond who is in the nursing home at White Sulphur Springs recovering from a broken hip.
Faye Honaker brought the traveling basket and Lynn took it home with her.
Patty handed out the Heritage Recipe booklets she had made from the recipes we brought her.
The November meeting will be our scrapbook meeting at the Extension Office with Betty Jo McNeel.
The December meeting will be at the Dutch Haas Restaurant.
Patty gave a very interesting and informative program on West Virginia Rivers. In West Virginia where Randolph, Pocahontas, and Pendleton counties meet, is the birthplace of rivers. These six rivers are Elk, Cheat, Jackson, Greenbrier, Tygart Valley, and the south branch of the Potomac. Rivers have played a big role in the development of West Virginia. Our economy of West Virginia depends on our rivers and streams.
Refreshments were provided by Mary Jirka and were enjoyed by all.
Those present were: Patty Gray, Lynn Humphreys, Sally Humphreys, Faye Honaker, Colleen Walton, Jean Foley, and Kitty Loudermilk.
