Patty Gray opened the meeting by welcoming everyone.
For her meditations, she read a poem on Volunteer Threads. This fit right in with the guest speaker who spoke on the volunteer program.
Patty gray gave the health Motivator report on Calcium. Calcium is vital for bone health. Our body does not produce calcium.
Faye Honaker will give this report next month.
The Friendship Quilt (made by the members) will be brought back next month and passed on to a member who will keep it for a year.
Achievement Day was May 11 held in the WV Building in the fairgrounds with a catered lunch. Each club brought a breakfast item, and Colleen Walton and Lynn Humphreys each brought a door prize.
The traveling basket was sent by Susan McCree and Lynn Humphrey took it this time. She will bring it back next month filled with goodies.
The next meeting will be May 17 at Patty Gray’s home.
Lynn Humphreys presented a very interesting and informative program on succulents. Succulents are plants that have adapted to dry, arid environments. They store water in their leaves, stems, and roots causing them to appear fleshy. Most of them thrive on neglect and dry soil. Succulents can be grown indoors and outdoors, and they are suitable in any window that receives at least six hours of light.
Laura Sevy, from the Rupert Club spoke to the club about volunteering. She signed everyone up in a volunteer program. We are to keep an account of our volunteer hours.
Since Lynn was hostess, she served packaged snacks and water to drink.
Those enjoying the snacks were: Patty Gray, Faye Honaker, Sally Holliday, Betty Jo McNeel, Colleen Walton, Jean Foley, Lynn Humphreys, and guest Laura Sevy from the Rupert Club.
