The Fairfield Retired School Personnel met March 27 for a noon luncheon, with 18 members and four guests present.

Co-president Don Kremer introduced the speakers: Fairfield school district superintendent Art Sathoff, Jefferson County Health Center vice president of Clinical Services Joneane Parker, and District 6 coordinators Tom and Opal Handlen.

The next meeting will be April 24, with a luncheon at the McElhinny House.

Hostesses are Susan Shafer, Norine Septer and Marian DeVore. The program will be Reblings’ aquaphonics.




Eleven members of the Jefferson County Farm Bureau Women met Tuesday at the Pizza Ranch in Sigourney.

Jeanene Peiffer was the hostess.

Shirley Stanley, president, led the meeting. Roll call was answered with facts about the government of India. Stanley opened with a quiz about American presidents’ wives.

Old business included a report on the Farm Bureau community breakfast held in March. A good crowd attended, and Stanley thanked Sharon Schafer and Wilma Whitham for their help.

In new business, the Farm Bureau Board will have a welcome sign for RAGBRAI’s coming to Fairfield, but not a food booth.

The group visited the costume shop called Curtains Up. Costumes are stored there in a large warehouse. It also has a retail store area. The owners take and fulfill orders for costuming for theater productions in Iowa and in other parts of the United States. Curtains Up moved to Sigourney about two years ago after a fire gutted their previous store in Keota.

The next meeting will be May 7 at Pizza Ranch in Fairfield, with Christine Schiedel as hostess. The program will be on gardening with Kathy Tollenaere.



The National Active and Retired Federal Employees, Chapter 1814, will meet April 12 for an 11:30 a.m. lunch and meeting at the Fairfield Senior Citizen Center.

The meeting will follow lunch. Iowa NARFE President Larry Moore will be in attendance.

Phone reservations to Dalene Lauder, 472-4594 by noon Wednesday.
