The February meeting was held at the home of Terri Westfall. Our speaker for the night was club member, Gayle Hilkert. She and her husband, Lew, attended the presidential inauguration. They were about 100 yards from the Capitol and the podium. They were able to see the oath of office. It was packed with people. Everyone around them were friendly and excited to witness this historical event. Gayle said that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that she and Lew will never forget. She then shared the official invitation and tickets they received and some pictures that she had taken.
The meeting was then called to order. Fifteen members answered the roll call, “How do you chase away the winter blues?” In old business, the raffle we held at the basketball games of the two snowmen handcrafted by Chuck Johnston and Rick Kuney, was a success. A thank you was sent to each of them for donating these special items. It was decided to hold another raffle next year at the beginning of the basketball season.
In new business, a letter was read from the Hilltop Drama Club asking us to advertise in the program for their upcoming musical entitled “9 to 5”, which will be held March 10, 11, & 12 at Hilltop in The Commons. Laura Rohlf make a motion to put an ad in the program, and Terri Westfall seconded. The motion carried.
The March 13 meeting will be held at the home of Shirley Taylor. The April 10 meeting will be our Pampered Chef fundraiser party held at the Presbyterian Church starting at 6:30.
The meeting was then adjourned and delicious refreshments were served by Abby Hendricks and Mel Mercer.
