Northern Extension News

By Kristi Brose

Nine members of Northern Unit answered to the roll call about the importance of forgiveness. Home Extension was discussed, and took on a very lengthy conversation, ideas about what could be done to fix some things.

Old business was what Mary took to the Membership Party and the name change of the state Extension. In new business, Kristi brought up that we need to do something at our meetings, maybe play board games or cards, so she suggested that EVERY member make a list of the things they would like to do in upcoming meetings.

A discussion took place on a “shoebox mission” – Joyce does this at her church. The boxes are filled with supplies and sent to places like Africa. Earlene asked if we were going to continue to meet on Mondays and said it was not the best day to meet.

The 4-H spaghetti fundraiser is Saturday, March 16, 4:00pm-7:00pm at the Extension office. Mary Bauer won the Pack Rat game. Krist Brose made corned beef and cabbage, Linda Duncan,Mary Bauer, Earlene Galloway, Carolyn Odom, Sue Browning, Joyce Lee, Carolyn Lynch and Darla Forsythe enjoyed all the fixins’ to this St. Patrick Day lunch. We even had GREEN white pie !!!

Team 2 will be responsible for the April meeting, Joyce is fixing pulled pork, Carolyn Odom is making potato salad, slaw and bringing buns, Carolyn Lynch is making baked beans. Janice Richardson, Carolyn Steckenrider, Ginger Prior and Judy Webb are on that list, think about what to bring that will go with the pork. Carolyn Odom was the hostess and the room was decorated for Easter since it is also in March.

Hope everybody is enjoying Daylight Savings, maybe the weather will start cooperating now that the time has changed. Happy Easter from the girls in Northern Unit !
