Reed hosts March Beginnings in September

The March Beginnings met Sept. 11 at Vickie Reed’s home with Sandy York as hostess. York led the club in the pledge to the flag and the homemaker’s creed. Roll call was answered and the song of the month was sung. Karen Barnard read the minutes of the last meeting and York gave the treasurer’s report.

Shirley Henson, York and Barnard attended the district meeting on Aug. 20. A total of $650 was raised for the Purdue Cancer Research by bidding on silent auction items.
