Cheerful Learners met at the home of Virginia Morris on May 20. Jean Hoffman served as her co-hostess. The meeting was opened by Barbara Sloan, president, with the pledge to the flag and the club collect.
Ruth Nelson, program chairman for this meeting, introduced Pat Betz from the Glenn A. Jones Library. She told of the summer reading program planned for this year. Its theme is “Dig into Reading.” Last summer they had 1,500 kids in the program. It is divided into three levels of reading. She also explained some of the new things to come and explained how we were related to the High Plains Library District.
Twelve members responded to roll call with their plans for summer. The treasury balance was given. A letter from the Weld County Fair Board asked for $80 to be used as prizes. This is $5 higher than normal. The group voted to add the $5 to our regular amount. They also voted to give $50 to the summer reading program. This also carried.
It was announced former member Ruby Pixler had passed away.
Next meeting (June 17) will be the salad luncheon at the home of Kelly Portz, with Anne Thomas serving as her co-hostess. Members are reminded this is when we give our secret sisters a birthday gift.
The July picnic will be held July 15 at 4 p.m. at the home of Ann Hughes.
