She thanked the hostesses Tunia McClure, Barb Fyffe, Sue Garrett and Marguerite Tuggle. Secretary Bonnie Miles called the roll and read the minutes.

Fyffe reminded the Christmas tree project committee to meet Nov. 20 to decorate the two trees at the Jay Myers Plaza. Becky Kremp and Bonnie Jones will be in charge of decorating the trees at Meredith Plaza.

Diana Gill reported that she had gone to the recent downtown Christmas stroll and it was very impressive and enjoyable.

Goodwin reported on the district meeting that was held in Petersburg.

Members then decorated centerpieces for an assisted living home.
