The Spring Fling ended with President Beason thanking all club members for their presentations and for making our event a success.
Pleasant Valley Homemakers
Pleasant Valley Homemakers met April 4 at Harolds Restaurant near Freeman for our lunch and meeting. Jeanette Bartles was hostess. President Carole opened our meeting by leading in the pledge to the flag. A short devotional was given and the minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved and the treasurers report was given.
We were reminded of Spring Fling on April 17 at the Extension Office. Responsibilities were discussed because Pleasant Valley had registration duty. Linda Wyant brought the name tags.
There was a silent auction of various items to help our treasury. What a fun way to exchange nice things and help our club.
Secret Pal gifts were received by Linda Reece, Sandy Reece, Karen Roberts, Jo Ann Swearengin and Carole Raynes.
The hostess gift was won by Roberts and Linda Reece.
Club will meet next Friday, May 2, at the home of Wyant.
