The fall meeting of Cheerful Learners was held Oct. 15 at the home of Ruby Spaur. Jean Hoffman served as co hostess.
Barbara Sloan opened the meeting with the pledge to the flag and the club collect. Roll call was answered by Helen Chesnut, Sandra Hays, Jean Hoffman, Ann Hughes, Charlene Nelson, Ruth Nelson, Kelly Portz, Bonnie Ruppert, Lyn Russell, Barbara Sloan, Barbara Tregoning and Johnny Ullmann. They answered with ideas where they thought some of our monies should be donated.
Treasurer gave her report. There were no bills and no correspondence. The group voted to donate $100 to the library and $50 each to the Catholic and Methodist Thanksgiving food baskets.
Ruby Spaur will do some shopping for Milliken Elementary School and present the bill at the next meeting. It was moved to table any more giving until next meeting. The next meeting will be held Nov. 19 at the home of Barbara Tregoning. The answer to roll call will be food donations to the Weld County Food Bank. The next meeting will be time for dues and the election of officers for the coming year.
Meeting adjourned and Jean Hoffman gave a quiz on candidates and officers in local and state and federal offices; as to how many and how they were elected. She then passed out booklets to the members from the League of Women Voters and gave pros and cons on the three state ballot issues. First was the State Personal system, the second on the use and regulations of marijuana, and the third was the proposed amendment to support campaign finance limits. Be sure to get out and vote on Nov. 6.
