Thirteen members of the Nightengales HCE club met at the home of Peggy Sutton on May 9, 2019. Prior to the meeting, Peggy and co-hostess Connie Warren served a delicious meal of lasagna, salad, and garlic bread, followed by a choice of Cherry Delight and Italian Cream Cake.
After the Pledge to the Flag, the HCE Prayer, and roll call, President Vickie Hobbs opened the business meeting by calling for the reading of the minutes and the treasurer’s report. The business discussed was the upcoming Salad Bar/Vendor Fair to be held in the Emmanuel Methodist Church in Carmi on May 18. Members who want to send salads may contact Vickie or Sue McArthy, taking the salads to them by 10:00 a.m. that day. A second topic was the annual Ladies’ Day trip. Mary Beth Sutton suggested going to Josephine’s near Godfrey, Ill. This is a restaurant with several shops near it. The finalized date is May 31; the group will meet and leave from the grade school at 8:30 a.m. Members will be contacted for their decision no later than early on May 22 in order for reservations to be made. Finally, hostess partners were drawn as follows: Vera Blackman and Jana Johnson; Nancy Colbert and Tawny Henson; Cruzan Kissel and Peggy Sutton; Connie Warren and Sue McArthy; Vickie Hobbs and Carol Skaggs; Kay Turner and Sandy Burke; Mary Beth Sutton and Carolyn Price; Jo Sutton and Sandy Spence. The hostesses for the September meeting only were announced: Peggy and Cruzan, with the meeting to be held at Cruzan’s.
After the business meeting, members played Bingo. Winners were Nancy, Jo, and Sandy. Have a nice summer. See you on September 5, 2019.
