Tuesday evening was the annual CFEL Fall meeting and banquet. There are currently two Extension Clubs active in our County.
This year’s fall themed banquet speaker was Rose. Rose, a talented seamstress, shared a quilt trunk show with the ladies. Everyone enjoyed seeing the beautiful variety of quilts Rose has made.
The County Historian, gave the Historian Report. This report is submitted by both Clubs and gave a review of activities the ladies did in the last year. Two members shared their experience from this year’s State Convention.
The banquet featured award winners. Several ladies received pins for 25 and 40 years of membership. State level reading certificates were also handed out for the number of books and magazines read by an individual in a year’s time.
The banquet was bitter sweet. After 72 years of service to the community the Hand-E-Hands Club has decided to disband at the end of 2011. The primary reason for ending our Club is because active enrollment has diminished over the years. It is also sad to say that the last Charter member of the Hand-E-Hands passed away last week.
