Saluda Homemakers

The Saluda Homemakers met Oct. 9 at Ponderosa Steak House with five members present. Lisa Kramer opened the meeting with the Extension Homemakers Club Creed and the Pledge of Allegiance. The song of the month was, "I've Got Spurs that Jingle, Jangle, Jingle." The devotion was the Lord's Prayer. Members answered the roll call with their first crush. Dorothy Canada read the secretary's report. Plans were made for Thanksgiving, with each member to make 10 placards for the Hanover Nursing Center. For the December meeting, each member will write a Christmas card for a resident. A Thank you card was received from Evelyn Crafton. Martha Knigga read the quote of the month from Paul Harvey, " In times like these, it is helpful to remember that there have always been times like these." Ruth Kramer read the thought of the month, "When the mouth stumbles, it is worse than the foot." The club will meet again Nov. 13 at Ponderosa.
