Hamdan hosts April Debs Aug. meeting

The April Debs Extension Homemakers met for its August meeting at the home of Debbie Hamdan who was the hostess for the evening. President Hamdan welcomed everyone to her home and gave a special welcome to Cheryl Cornelius as a new member. The meeting was opened with the pledge to the flag and the homemaker’s creed. Ruth Frette gave the devotion about the holy symbols of the menorah, fish and Star of David and information on her trip to England and the church service they attended. Rosie McGuire gave a history of the Doxology and members sang the song “Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow.” Fifteen members were present.

Jan Wahl read the minutes from the June and July meetings. She read a thank you card from Judy Lowe. Lynn O’Brian read a thank you note from Caleb Wagler for the April Deb’s club sponsoring the beekeeping project plaque he received this year in 4-H. Eleanor Lawyer gave the treasurer’s report. She collected donations for the Bethel Mall. Ruth Kelly stated she purchased 170 notebooks for the club’s donation to Bethel Mall. Around 900 kids participated this year and 200 volunteers helped.

The success of the 4-H Show was discussed. Marsha Boyd, McGuire and Wahl helped in the arena food stand during the goat show which was the largest of all the animal shows. Boyd, Lawyer, Ruth Frette, Joan Schuetz, Joyce Goodwin, and Hamdan are attending the District meeting on Aug. 20 at Ferdinand. The club decided to provide meals on the third Tuesday of the month at Power House and rotate in groups of six providing the food.

Goodwin gave a lesson on Identity Theft Prevention. Placing a freeze on your credit report at all three credit reporting agencies will prevent credit from being taken out in your name. It is free and you can unfreeze at any time. Contact for addresses of the credit reporting agencies, do not call numbers and for reporting identity theft. Schuetz gave a report on Annie Oakley. She was born Aug. 13, 1860, as Phoebe Ann Oakley Moses. At the age of 8 she took her first and best shot.

Jill Cecil won the jackpot prize, Lawyer the door prize, and Boyd and O’Brian the game prizes. Several happy dollars were given. Also attending was Virginia Riggle.

The next meeting will be Sept. 10, 7 p.m. at the home of Ruth Frette with Ruth as hostess and Gwen as co-hostess.
