The Johnstown Breeze
Cheerful Learners met Sept. 17 at the home of Barb Sloan. Members present included Sloan, Helen Chesnut, Sandra Hays, Jean Hoffman, Ann Hughes, Ruth Nelson, Kelly Portz, Bonnie Ruppert, Ruby Spaur, Barbara Tregoning, and Johnny Ullman.
After the Pledge of Allegiance and the Club Collect were said, correspondence from the Glenn A. Jones M.D. Memorial Library, League of Women Voters, and Champion Senior Citizen cake decorator Marilyn White was read, thanking the Cheerful Learners for their support. Chesnut followed with the treasurer’s report.
In new business:
– Future monetary donation recipients were discussed. A gift of clothing to the elementary schools was tabled until the next meeting. It was decided before the October meeting is held, members will focus on possible organizations that should be considered as recipients of future donations.
– The Cheerful Learners’ Christmas party will be held at Johnson’s Corner.
In committee reports:
– Ullman, the Sunshine Committee chairman, reported cards were sent to several members over the summer months.
The “home” program was led by Nelson. After joining to recall all phrases which include the word “home,” members immensely enjoyed reminiscing about “homecoming” and all the memories it brought to mind.
The meeting adjourned at 4:15 p.m.
The next meeting will be held Oct. 15, hosted by Spaur and Hoffman.
