Sunset Extension Club

The Sunset Extension Club met on Tuesday, October 19 at Trinity United Church of Christ. President Denise Smith opened the meeting with the Pledge to the Flag, Club Creed, and mission statement. Members answered roll call by naming someone they would like to share a meal with. 

Dee Blessinger, hostess for the meeting, led the group in the song of the month “Deep in the Heart of Texas.” She brought the item of interest, a music box in the shape of a treadle sewing machine, complete with pattern, fabric, and scissors.

The group talked about the need for more apartments, duplexes, etc. for rent in Jasper as the citizenship report. They stressed the need for these rentals to be affordable to more people. 

Janet Epple gave the Health and Safety lesson “Grapes are Great.” She said that grapes help with blood flow and blood pressure. They can also help fight cancer. 

The secretary and treasurer reports were read and approved. Mrs. Smith reported on the County Council meeting held in September. She said that Make a Difference Day is October 23. The club decided to donate to the 4-H organization for this project. She also told of the Extension exhibit at the museum on November 18 and gave suggestions for things members could take for the display. 

Judy Hubster gave the lesson “Oh no, I think I’ve Been Scammed.” She told of the steps that should be taken if you think this has happened. 

The door prize was won by Ann Buechler and the attendance prize went to Janet Epple. Game prizes went to Janet Epple and Denise Smith.
