The Clover Buds and the Family and Consumer Science “Older” Clubs met Thursday, September 19 at the Multi-Purpose Building. We had a very busy meeting. We were very excited because we had 20 youth and eight adults attend! Our guest speaker was Mrs. Linda Williamson.
Mrs. Williamson shared with us about the Operation Christmas Child Project. We then took up pet care items for the Oxford-Lafayette Humane Society. We had eight children to contribute to this service project. Later, we began working on our Christmas Project for the nursing home.
A special thanks to Mrs. Linda Williamson for coming to speak to us and to all of the parents that purchased supplies for our service projects and for those that stayed and helped during the meeting. We could not do it without you!
