Homemakers Quarterly Council Meeting

Pamela Davis, from the Cass Regional Medical Center-Pleasant Hill location, gave a program on osteoporosis for the Cass County Area Homemakers Quarterly Council meeting Dec. 4 at the Extension Office in Harrisonville.

Davis’s presentation encouraged her audience to maintain an active lifestyle and to make healthy choices regarding their daily habits. She discussed vitamins, which can effectively supplement a healthy diet.

Meeting obligations were covered by Progressive Priscillas club, hospitality, and Glorified Homemakers were responsible for registration.

Betty Beason, president, called the meeting to order and led the pledge of allegiance to the flag. Darlene Hodges gave the thought of the day.

Fifteen members answered roll call with a childhood memory of Christmas. Clubs in attendance were Get Together (3), Glorified Homemakers (3), Lisle Club (1), Pleasant Hill Young Matrons (3) Pleasant Valley Homemakers (1) and Progressive Priscillas (4).

Secretary Linda Kyser read the minutes of the September meeting.

Joann Swearengin, treasurer, reported on the councils and the Helen Morse Scholarship fund’s financial status.

Members who had attended the Oct. 24 meeting at Arcadian Moon Winery in Higginsville shared highlights of the day. Cass County expects to have the 2014 meeting and will begin making plans at the March 2014 meeting.

Members voted to make the annual donations to selected charities: Harrisonville Ministerial Alliance, RIO Drexel, Peculiar Thrift Shop and Pleasant Love Fund.

Barbara Carter will deliver the items that were brought for Life Choice.

Door prizes were won by Darlene Hodges and Lillian Strack.

The next quarterly council meeting will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 5, 2014, at the Extension Office.
