The State Fair is Aug. 2-18 and York read the article in the newsletter, “Year of Popcorn--Indiana State Fair.”

Barnard gave a special interest lesson on “July is Blueberry Month” and a leader lesson titled “Foods for Healthy Aging.”

After dismissing with the prayer song, new program books were filled out. Barnard won the hostess gift and Reed, York, Barnard and Stephanie Eagen received gifts from their secret pals.

The next meeting will be Aug. 14 at 10 a.m. at Reed’s home. Eagen will be hostess.
