Sunset Extension Club

The Sunset Extension Club met for its first meeting of the 2021-2022 year at Trinity United Church of Christ on July 20th. There were six members answering roll call by telling of something they collect.

Janet Epple was the hostess of the evening. President Denise Smith called the meeting to order with the Pledge to the Flag and the Club Creed. The secretary’s report written by Mrs. Epple was read by Judy Hubster. Mrs. Smith gave the treasurer’s report in the absence of the Treasurer. Both reports were read and approved. 

Mrs. Epple showed a miniature office desk and chair from her son when he was a member of Junior Achievement. She read an article from the Herald concerning the protests in Cuba and other places. Cubans are protesting for things such as food, medicine, including the Covid vaccine. She told of the dangers of poison hemlock along roads and ditches for the Health and Safety lesson. She said that the hemlock and Queen Anne lace look very much alike so people need to be very careful.

The song of the month was “Deep in the Heart of Texas.” A discussion was held on the 4-H fair. There were five of the club members that helped on Friday and Saturday to enter and display entries in the open-class division. 

The door prize was won by Ann Buechler and the attendance prize by Sylvia Adams. Game prizes were won by Denise Smith and Judy Hubster. Mrs. Adams was given a gift in thanks for being president the previous year. 

The next meeting will be held on August 17th with a picnic at the Riverwalk. Mrs. Adams will be hostess and all members are asked to bring a dish to share. Mrs. Adams will provide table service, drinks, and hotdogs.
