She said some things we can do to keep our brain healthy are to eat fish, whole grains, and dark greens. Also exercising regularly, sleeping well, doing puzzles and being social will help keep the brain healthy.\r\n\r\nColleen Walton recorded volunteer hours for the year. She will call those that weren\u2019t present to get their hours. Patty Gray brought the traveling basket, which was filled with garden veggies, and gave it to Lynn Humphreys, who will bring it back next month. Patty Gray passed the open lines around for all to see. She also read two Thank You notes from the 4-H - one was from a camper and the other was from a leader. Both thanked us for our support.\r\n\r\nLeadership Day will be Sept. 24 and the theme is \u201cRemembering 4-H.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe state meeting will be at Jackson\u2019s Mill Oct. 2-4.\r\n\r\nThe November meeting in Rupert will be a carnival. Our club is responsible for corn hole and prizes for it.\r\n\r\nWe voted to change our meeting day from the first Tuesday to the second Tuesday, starting in February 2019.\r\n\r\nFor our October meeting we voted to change our meeting date to Tuesday, Oct. 9, due to Patty Gray being out of town.\r\n\r\nOur September meeting will be with Kitty Loudermilk and Barbara Shiley will have the program, \u201cTelling the Story - Native Americans in West Virginia.\u201d\r\n\r\nSince this was a Reorganization meeting, new officers, lessons, lesson leaders and hostesses were chosen.\r\n\r\n<strong>Officers:<\/strong> President - Patty Gray, Vice President - Mary Jirka, Secretary - Colleen Walton, Treasurer - Mary Liz Richmond, Reporter - Colleen Walton\r\n\r\n<strong>Committee Chairmen:<\/strong>\r\n\r\nContinuing Education - Lynn Humphreys, Family - Betty Jo McNeil, Marketing\/Membership - Dot Feamster, Health Motivator - Group, Purposeful Reading - Colleen Walton\r\n\r\n<strong>Lessons, Leaders & Hostesses:<\/strong>\r\n\r\n<strong>Feb. 12<\/strong> Lesson - Eating Healthy while Eating Out - Country Club - Barbara Shiley, Hostess\r\n\r\n<strong>Mar. 12<\/strong> Lesson - Sleep A-Z - Extension Office - Mary Liz, Hostess\r\n\r\n<strong>April 9<\/strong> Lesson - Granny Ladies - Extension Office - Colleen Walton, Hostess\r\n\r\n<strong>May 14<\/strong> Lesson - WV Women who Made History - Barbara Shiley - Barbara Shiley, Hostess\r\n\r\n<strong>June 11<\/strong> Lesson - Vinegar, Myths and Facts - Extension Office - Lynn Humphreys, Hostess\r\n\r\n<strong>July<\/strong> - Lesson - Carnegie Concert - Carnegie Hall\r\n\r\n<strong>Aug. 13<\/strong> Lesson - Reorganization - Home of Mary Jirka - Mary Jirka, Hostess\r\n\r\n<strong>Sept. 10<\/strong> Lesson - A Spoonful of Sugar - Home of Patty Gray - Patty Gray, Hostess\r\n\r\n<strong>Oct. 8<\/strong> Lesson - Thailand International Student Lesson - Extension Office - Kitty Loudermilk, Hostess\r\n\r\n<strong>Nov. 12<\/strong> Lesson - 2019 Memories - Home of Betty Jo McNeil - Betty Jo McNeil, Hostess\r\n\r\n<strong>Dec. 10<\/strong> Lesson - Christmas Party - Home of Mary Liz Richmond - Mary Liz Richmond, Hostess\r\n\r\nDelicious refreshments were enjoyed by Patty Gray, Thelma Berkley, Jean Foley, Mary Liz Richmond, Lynn Humphreys, Colleen Walton, Mary Jirka and Barbara Shiley.
