Homemaker happenings

The Mauckport Homemakers met Aug. 11 at the Central Parish Hall for a pot-luck luncheon. The meeting was called to order with Barbara Donahue presiding and she led the group in reciting the pledge and homemakers’ creed.

Carrie Lucas gave the devotion about “All Things to All People.” For roll call, Phyllis Faith had the five attendees say what they had done to help a friend in the past month.

For the citizenship portion of the meeting, Iris Yeager related a story from Readers’ Digest about the importance of an education from the perspective of an immigrant.

Mary Lawrence distributed and explained how to make a picnic placemat complete with napkin and set of cutlery that her niece had made. Faith displayed her canvas tote bags she had made with painted designs on each as well as ornaments made of yo-yos. Donahue demonstrated how she makes Crock-Pot apple butter.

The club will be responsible for a portion of the Holiday Workshop on Nov. 9. Members discussed possible themes for that program. The final determination will be made at the September meeting.

Lucas led the group in singing before the meeting adjourned.

It was noted that there was 100% participation of the group members which was appreciated by their vice president at her first held meeting.
