The War Memorial Building was the place for the regular Wednesday, Oct. 23 meeting for the 55+ Club. A good attendance was had and the meal was, as usual, very good; in fact there were so many desserts, John Dale said everyone had to eat at least three...I really think some may have tried doing that!

The main topic of discussion was the meal being planned for Nov. 6, when the Club serves the Veterans a special Veterans Day meal. The RSVPs are coming in and we are assuming a good number will be accepting our invitation; there is still plenty of time for a call to reserve a seat on Wednesday, Nov. 6. Members are looking forward to welcoming those who come.

Cards and remembrances were sent to Pat Smith, in the death of her son in Missouri; also, Larry Profitt is adjusting to chemo and radiation treatments and David Martin is having a difficult time with his illness.

It was good to have a ‘tiny’ visit with Glenna McLeod when she came by to bring a guest book for the veterans to sign when they come as our guests. Seems she and Bill do lots of running back and forth in trips to Amarillo for various needs; and if it is ‘physician’ calls, those always seem to fall on Wednesday.
Ann Metcalf said the upcoming J.O.Y. Halloween Fun Night could always use cookies, pies, cakes and etc. for the cake walk. If interested, contact Ann or just take your ‘goodies’ out to the Ag Barn around 5:30 Saturday.

The butterfly puzzle was completed and was glued together for a wall hanging to be sent to Flois, the mother of Darlene Reed. Darlene says her mother loves butterflies, so this should be a beautiful gift to her. A winter scene puzzle was put out Wednesday morning and by 3 o’clock, it was finished! Those people work fast, and Billie Williams and Doris Hobbs stayed with it until they finished. May have to find a more difficult one, so it will last longer?

The Methodists’ fall dinner is to be held soon and Tommy Roark brought the quilt that they plan to give away. It is beautiful work done by Frances Sinclair; and tickets can be obtained by checking with the Methodist Church or see Tommy or Jony Thomas.

Marsha Thomas left us with a good bit of wisdom: ‘tact is making a point without making an enemy.’ If you succeed in doing this, not only you, but others will be blessed.
