Jefferson County Farm Bureau Women; Fairfield Women's Club
JEFFERSON COUNTY FARM BUREAU WOMEN
Jefferson County Farm Bureau women met Tuesday at Fairfield’s Pizza Ranch for a noon luncheon, with 12 members answering roll call, the topic of which was the history of India.
Julie Fiske was welcomed as a new member.
Kathy Tollenaere, master gardener and guest speaker, presented a program on the many beneficial aspects of gardening after which Shirley Stanley, president, gave an inspirational reading and thanked those who attended her recent retirement party.
Plans were discussed for the group’s part in Ag in the Classroom activities at the upcoming Greater Jefferson County Fair, and several members volunteered to serve on the organizing committee.
Due to the fact Stanley might be moving out of the area before year end, Phyllis Harris agreed to serve as interim president if needed. Members presented Stanley with an appreciation gift as a way of thanking her for all of her hard work for the Farm Bureau and Farm Bureau Women during the last several years.
The next meeting will be held Sept. 3, with Shirley McCracken serving as hostess.
