We were greeted with spring decor that also served as door prizes.
Our day started off with the County Council meeting. We had a good turn out. There are two (2) clubs left in our County. Our Club, Hand-E-Hands, and the Town and Country Club. Town and Country decorated, hosted coffee and organized the silent auction. The silent auction is an activity to raise money for the Area Organization. It is also fun for the ladies.
The State CFEL President and a Harding County member joined us for the Area I meeting after coffee.
The fun activity of the day was crafting with clay. Barb Uhrig brought supplies to make jewelry. Barb is a Ranch Wife and artist; check out her website here.
Our Club hosted dinner. Vegetable Beef with Barley soup and Chicken Chili was served. The soup was accompanied with three (3) different types of breads. Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes and Strawberry Fluff dessert completed the meal. I was very happy with the way my Sourdough Oat Bread turned out!
The afternoon program was presented by Karla, LPN from Prairie Community Health – Bison Clinic. She discussed General Screenings and Immunizations for Woman. Karla was assisted by J’s Mom, B, who is a part-time LPN at the Bison Clinic.
We concluded the day with results from the Cultural Arts competition and learning who got each item at the silent auction. I came home with a new book, lotion with complementary body spray and a bracelet. Not bad for only spending $8.50.
CFEL membership is dwindling a little more each year. I was the youngest person in attendance at yesterday’s gathering. These types of events remind me how important it is to be involved in our small rural communities. Yesterday we took time out of our busy schedules to visit, laugh, create, and learn.
