The Progressive CEOS met with Barbara Shiley for their November meeting with nine members present.
President, Patty Gray opened the meeting by welcoming everyone.
Due to the absence of the secretary and treasurer, there were no minutes or treasurer’s report. Patty Gray gave the Health Motivator Tip for the month. This month it is on the Bone Bandit. To have healthy bones, we need to limit our soft drinks, sodium intake, alcohol and smoking. The committee reports were discussed. We also discussed the breakfast foods and door prizes for the Nov. 20 workshop at the Community Building in Rupert. Barbara Shiley will do a cookie demonstration for the meeting.
The program on Fiber Arts was given by Deborah Rapp. She learned to knit, crochet and do small weaving as a child. After buying sheep, she needed to do something with the wool so she learned to process it; washing and dyeing the fleece, picking, carding and getting it ready for all kinds of fiber arts. Her fiber arts include needle felted animals, wreaths, hand woven rugs, chair pads, knitted scarves and bird nesting balls. She showed these items to the club.
Our next meeting will be our Christmas Party at Food & Friends on Dec. 8. Donations to Penny Pitch will be taken at this time.
Delicious refreshments were enjoyed by all. Members attending the meeting were: Patty Gray, Betty Jo McNeel, Jean Foley, Faye Honaker, Dot Feamster, Thelma Berkley, Chris Gowings, Betty Rutherford and Barbara Shiley.
