Linda Schmidt read a meditation, \u201cGazing Out the Window.\u201d She also had the Health Motivator tip for April which was about the eye.<\/h1>\r\nShe said some ways to protect the eye is to wear polarized sunglasses, have regular eye exams, limit our TV and computer screen time. She added there are some foods that are eye-healthy, such as green leafy veggies, oily fish, eggs, pork, and citrus fruits.\r\n\r\nA sympathy card was signed for Ella Yeager\u2019s family. Ella was a former long-time member. Her wake was on Apr. 3 at McGraw\u2019s Funeral Home and funeral services were held Apr. 4 at the Lewisburg Methodist Church.\r\n\r\nThe Beckley area meeting is Tuesday, May 15 at Meadow Bridge at the Missionary Baptist Church. The lunch reservations must be in by Apr. 25. The foreign exchange student will be the speaker at the area meeting.\r\n\r\nAchievement Day will be May 24 in the WVU Building at the fairgrounds. Our club is to furnish two door prizes. Colleen Walton and Mary Liz Richmond will provide these.\r\n\r\nPatty had the program, \u201cHome Economics from The Great Depression to Today.\u201d She asked those who grew up in that time span to tell what it was like. There were several who responded. It made for a very interesting program.\r\n\r\nThe next meeting will be with Barbara and she will have the program, \u201cCelebrate Equality - WV Women and Education.\u201d Dot will have the meditation and the Health Motivator.\r\n\r\nLynn Humphreys took the traveling basket home with her and will bring it back next month filled with goodies.\r\n\r\nMary Jirka won the door prize.\r\n\r\nDelicious refreshments were served and a time of fun and fellowship was shared by all.
