Monday Afternoon Club meets

The Monday Afternoon Club met Feb. 3 at the library. President De Odell presided. Helen Dashnaw presented a slate of officers for the next year consisting of Gayle Ostby, president; De Odell, vice president; Jan Wake, recording secretary; and Martha Corn, treasurer.

Kim Wagner gave a commentary of reflections on winter from a 1965 fourth grade textbook of Indiana history. The text spoke of harsh winter experiences of settlers, sparse hunting expeditions, living on smoked meat, mush and syrup. People lived with home remedies and “Granny cures.”

Local author Roy Wachter gave a program on converting his book “The Blue Hole” to a drama for the Veale Creek Theater. Verbal scenes had to portray several people and scenes around Washington. Being on stage required actors to hold conversations to describe actions. Wachter said that as a writer it is easier to create a drama than to write dialogue because drama doesn’t require punctuation or adjectives to create a setting.

Mr. Wachter spoke of a new play which will be produced in April. This drama will be a mystery dinner theater centered on a class reunion and will be held several times at Christ United Methodist Church. The mystery will feature a cruise ship setting and will use audience participation.

Members present were Sue Colbert, Martha Corn, Helen Dashnaw, Sue Garrett, Diane Gill, Carol Gregory, Kitty Lawson, Fran Neal, Betty Norris, De Odell, Gayle Ostby, Kim Wagner, Jan Wake, Julie Bassler, Linda Cornelius, Janet Goodwin, Laurinda Walker, Mary Lou Gotwald and Jan Smith.
