The Washington Township Circle Club entertained the Everwelcome Club May 12, at 1 p.m., at the Family Table Restaurant. A delicious meal was enjoyed. Rosalind gave the table grace. Five guests included Janice Burger, Barbara Miller, Carvall Harden, Brenda Shidler and Shirley Ellis. Our members were Linda Schiele, Brenda Gunthensburger, Doris Romas, Judy England and Rosalind Schopmeyer.
Linda gave two contests. Doris had several readings. A box of wave plume petunias was given to each lady. Social time was enjoyed.
Later in the afternoon, our club met at Doris Romas' home. The Pledge of Allegiance and club creed were repeated in unison. Brenda led us in singing, "Let me call you sweetheart."
The treasurer's report and the secretary's report were both approved.
Linda gave the report on Brazil Township, the county seat. It was the last township organized in Clay County, in 1868. Brazil is the largest city.
Dues for next year were collected and we paid for tickets for the June 28, Achievement Day program. Registration is at 9:30 a.m., and the meeting is at 10 a.m., at the Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall.
Linda gave the lesson "Women and heart health, know your numbers, recognize the symptoms."
We sang the homemakers' prayer.
The next meeting was June 9, at the Moonshine Restaurant in Illinois. Doris had the lesson, "Eat this, not that."
June 9 meeting
On June 9, Washington Township Circle held its weekly meeting while driving and riding in Judy England's van, on the way to the Moonshine Restaurant in Illinois.
Linda Scheile opened the meeting with devotions, "By My Side," and prayer. We repeated the club creed and flag salute. Brenda led us in singing, "The More We Get Together." Linda's citizenship lesson was on early history of Clay County. It was very interesting. Doris Romas gave the lesson "Eat This ... Not That" and we closed with the club prayer.
We arrived at Moonshine Restaurant and enjoyed our meal. Those attending were Judy England, Doris Romas, Linda Scheile, Brenda Gunthensburger, Rosalind Schopmeyer and Karrie Monce. In the afternoon we shopped at Oblong and Robinson, Ill. We enjoyed ice cream at Farmersburg Ice Cream Shop on our way home.
The next meeting will be at the home of Doris Romas July 14, starting at 1 p.m.
