The October meeting of the West Unity Three Arts Club was held at the home of Joan Rohlf. Larry Long, Superintendent of Millcreek-West Unity Schools, stopped in to inform the members of the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. This includes graduates who have done exceedingly well with their careers. To nominate an outstanding alumni, forms can be found on the school’s webpage.
The guest speaker for the night was Lauren Garrett, the current Miss West Unity. She told of the many activities involved as being queen such as attending parades in the summer, the West Unity Fall Fest, among many others. Lauren has also been dancing for many years including ballet. She will be dancing with the Ballet Theater of Toledo this Christmas season in the Nutcracker to be performed at the Valentine Theater in Toledo.
President Emily Schlosser called the meeting to order. Eighteen members answered the roll call, “What do you want for Christmas?” Thank yous were read from Ruth Parrett for the gift card as past president and Kayla Settlemire for receiving the Three Arts Club Scholarship of $500. It was brought to our attention that Fran Harter, a past member, is now wheelchair bound. A card was signed by all members and will be sent to her.
The Avon fundraiser will be held until October 27. Candy Tressler talked about the library levy and how important it was to all the libraries in Williams County. It was discussed to possibly raise the Club dues for next year. It will be tabled for further discussion in the spring. The Christmas party will be held December 8 at 6:00 at the Union Street Grill in Bryan.
It was suggested to possibly “adopt a family” for the holiday season. It will be discussed further at the next meeting. The meeting was then adjourned. The November meeting will be held at the home of Ann Hollingshead.
