Vice President Shelia Thomason gave the meditations entitled, “Today I Will Be Proud of Who We Are.” The minutes were read by Secretary Donna Bennett.

New business included the CEOS of the Year nomination forms, a Spring Achievement Committee meeting and Strawberry Festival Committee meeting.
The lesson for the evening was given by Mullins and entitled, “Gardening with limited space and mobility.” Gardening is a fulfilling endeavor. Many people do not have a large area in which to grow a traditional vegetable garden. Those who live in a small apartment can grow vegetables, flowers and herbs in window boxes, small planters or hanging baskets. There are several techniques that can help a person overcome limited mobility, visual impairment and other physical limitations.
The meeting was adjourned and refreshments were served to Ethel Andrews, Donna Bennett, Nancy Hinchman-Mills, Lucy and Stanley Mullins, Cindy Philips, Debbie Quick, Shirley Spreacker and Sheila Thomason.

The lesson for the evening was given by Bennett titled “Cashing in on the Coupon Craze.” It’s easy to cut monthly expenses using coupons. To be a smart consumer and cash in on the coupon craze, do your homework. Learn about the different types of coupons, how and where they can be found and which are accepted by certain stores.
