Hello Everyone,

The month of October was a whirlwind of activity with 37 people attending the Oct 5th General Meeting/Nominations/Elections/Lunch. In August two of our women attended mission u, one in Santa Rosa and one in Reno, then in September four women traveled to Kentucky to work at the Red Bird Mission. Several spoke of their experiences of attending these events making for a pleasant and educational meeting. The nominations were reviewed and the vote was unanimous to elect. Lunch, as always, was well presented and tasty.

On Oct. 7th the Planning Meeting convened to discuss and plan for the Annual Bazaar/Lunch and Turkey Dinner which all starts on November 2 at 10am. These cooler days have us energized and looking forward to showing the many crafts that have been worked on throughout the year. The Country Store will be beckoning you to give your sweet tooth a treat and after a hearty lunch be sure to come back for the famous turkey dinner from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.

We continued the Planning Meeting with a line by line explanation of the revised budget that has been diligently worked on by the UMW Leadership Team and after discussion the vote was to accept the new budget.

As the bulletin boards in Pioneer Hall have needed to steadily be repaired, it was voted on to order new, more practical, sturdier, folding boards. These do not require decorating but can be if desired.

The next Planning Meeting is November 4th at 10am. The Planning Meeting is just what the name implies so come and be a partner in the details of these many events. Your input is important at these meetings. December 7th is the General Meeting/Officer Installation/Lunch at 11am.

Thought for the Day: What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls a butterfly.
