The Terry FCE met Jan. 24 for their regular monthly meeting. The ladies had lunch at Mueller’s.

Carol Pennington, president, called the meeting to order. Laverne Fowler read the minutes of the December meeting and called roll. The minutes were approved as read. Laverne stated she had gone to the Bank of Atchison with documentation that Becky Carr was elected treasurer. Carr gave the treasurer’s report and it was accepted.

The lessons for next year were discussed. April 18 will be the Dietary Supplement Lesson. October 11 is the Mediterranean Lesson which will be given at the Cummings Christian Church if it is available and also the FCE will conduct training in conjunction. Fowler was asked to reserve the building and open it up for the meeting. May 23 there will be a meeting conducted by Nancy Nelson on drug use and an Alzheimer’ lesson held at the Cummings Christian Church. The public is invited to these meetings. Times will be announced later.

Fowler, Edna Baker and Mary Garad will take the health lesson. There will be a lesson on “Kids in the Kitchen” given April 18 and the dietary supplement lesson will be given from noon to 1 p.m.

The Citizenship activities were discussed. Ideas presented were work together and share, cooperation, community activities, and volunteer to help. Instill in children that both teams follow the rules. Teacher is in authority over them, principal over the teacher, school board over the principal and the people who elected them they should respect and know. We should do our part in whatever action it requires.

Read the local paper; listen to the radio, go to the public hearings, volunteer to get involved. Remember both teams follow the same rule.

We were reminded to do the five weeks of physical activity program.

The ladies discussed making Laptop Busy Blankets as a community project. The blankets should be lap size and things sewn on them such as zippers, buttons, jar rings, keys, shapes and pom-poms,

The council had no meeting in January. In February they will select a county project. Laverne was reimbursed for the monetary donation given to Judy Green for crocheting the hats for the Boys and Girls Club.
