On Wednesday, January 16, the Round Mountain Extension Education Club met for their monthly meeting at the home of Peggy Aldridge. Fourteen members answered roll call.
The opening was entitled “Church Signs”. The one we liked the best was “Under the same management for over 2000 years.”
Members were encouraged to call the county agent, Gretchen Sanders, to volunteer at the upcoming Youth Stock Show. Several members were already signed up to help.
The Council report was given by Frankie Hohenberger. It covered the Fall leader training that officers went to in November, the State conference to be held in September and of which we are part of the host districts, but most important we began discussion on our annual Spring luncheon. All money made from the luncheon goes toward a 4-H scholarship. The luncheon will be held on April 25 from 11 to 1 and we are hoping to hold it at the Johnson City UMC. We are excited to have it in Johnson City again. The council will provide the meat and members will provide the side dishes and desserts. This is different from the way we have been doing it but our number of members is down and we are trying to find a format that will work. The country store will be home made items. Our cookbooks will be titled “Taste of the Seasons”. Members are asked to submit 2 recipes for each section, (1) November through February; (2) March through June; and (3) July through October. This is also a new format that we are trying out. Decorations also used as door prizes will be pitchers or tea pots.
Our club nominated 2 of our club members to be considered for most valuable member for our county. The member selected will be recognized at the District 10 Spring Conference in March. We nominated Marj Daniel and Joycelyn Carter.
Our program was given by George Cofran, editor-in- chief of Hill Country Portal. George gave a very informative program on computer use. He mainly covered email use and what to look for. If in doubt DON’T was his advice. We need to be careful when opening emails and never go to a link attached to the email.
Members enjoyed the delicious refreshments served by Peggy and, of course, visiting and finding out how everyone’s Holiday was.
Our next meeting will be on February 20 at the home of Jan Clemons.
