Sunshine Homemakers

The Sunshine Homemakers met June 12 at the home of Dorothy Morgan. Morgan, club president, opened the meeting with the Extension Homemakers Club Creed and the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by the song of the month, 'The Erie Canal." Sandi Koehler gave devotions from Luke 8:36. Marie Black gave the secretary's report and Koehler gave the treasurer' report. Members answered roll call with their father's occupation. The club discussed the Jefferson County 4-H Fair, July 7-12; the Indiana State Fair, Aug. 1-17; district meeting, Aug. 27 at Hanover Baptist Church; and achievement day, Sept. 12 at Resurrection Lutheran Church. The quote of the month was from Rudyard Kipling, "Gardens are not made by sitting in the shade."
