Dubble Duzzen Extension Homemakers
Dubble Duzzen Extension Homemakers

It's time for 'A Very Merry Christmas Party.' All members of the Dubble Duzzen Extension Homemakers received a 'special' invitation to join our hostess, Peggy Dixon, at The Right Track for a luncheon and party on Dec. 17 at noon. What a wonderful atmosphere to gather in with special friends to celebrate the holidays. Many of us remember the depot as children. A time when passenger trains were the norm for a community.

Flower Lovers Garden Club 12-19-14
The Christmas spirit was high as The Flower Lovers Garden Club met for their annual luncheon and installation of our 2015 officers.

Thirty-five members joined in the fun at Allen's Country Kitchen. The banquet room was decorated in holiday colors and members Mary Philpott and Meribeth Kussmaul made beautiful table center pieces for the festive tables and then gifted them to other members after the luncheon...thank you ladies.

This event was hosted by the Executive Committee; Paula Furr, Donna Walton, Becky Hankins, Anita Arnold, Priscilla Zachary, Pat Porterfield, Carolyn Fisher and Donna Stewart...and brings to a close our 2014 calendar.

We finished up the luncheon with our favorite "Dirty Santa" game, which always brings laughter and surprises as we opened, shared and stole garden related gifts from each other.

Double Duzzen Extension Homemakers Club 12-10-14
Sue Tandy opened her home for the November meeting of the Dubble Duzzen Home Extension Club. Each member brought two or three items to donate to the Fish Food Bank. President Peggy Dixon called the meeting to order. She welcomed members and guest, Pam Isenberg. Members present were: Sue Foy, Doris White, Becky Thompson, Marcia Neel, Sue Tandy, Linda Cooper, Eulah Jaynes, Sandy Caldwell, Marilyn Lewis, Judy Tulley, Pat Hall, and Peggy Dixon.

The food for thought for November was "Who are you to judge the life I live?

I know I'm not perfect-and I don't live to be. But before you point your fingers, make sure your hands are clean." The flag salutes to the American and Christian flags, the creed and the mission statement were repeated by everyone.

Sue Foy gave the inspiration message titled "Known but to God." She said that at the Arlington National Cemetery there is a memorial tomb that contains the remains of unknown soldiers from various wars of our country. The inscription on the tomb reads: "Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God." We honor these men and women who put their lives on the line for us, our nation and our freedom. Greatness is not found in power, prestige, or wealth, but in character, goodness to others, service and humility. These are found in our military men and women. The most important thing in life is to be known to god and to know him as your personal Savior.

Sue Tandy led the song of the month "Over the River We Go." Everyone joined in singing "Happy Birthday" to Becky Thompson who celebrated a November birthday.

The roll call question was to share your favorite turkey fact from your book. It was quite interesting the many turkey facts and other facts that were shared.

Marilyn Lewis gave the treasure's report. The minutes from October were read and approved.
