The treasurer’s report was read by Marilyn Alter. There were no corrections. It was approved.
There was one bill from Linda Lance for greeting cards. Crossett made the motion to pay her for them and Charolette Zihlman seconded.
There were no cookbooks sold this month.
There were three thank-you cards under correspondence. They were from Jeff and Sheri McPheron for the Christmas plate, Barb Lynchard for her kids at the Tolson Community Center and Bub Messer at Hope Haven.
Under new business, the yearly Groundhog Breakfast after services was discussed. This year it will be on Feb. 3 in the new sunrise room, with buscuits, gravy and sausage.
The group discussed replacing one of the kitchen sinks in the sunrise room for a deeper one. Zihlman noted she has a son who works at Whiley’s who could put one in. Angie Williamson made a motion to have this done right away. Crossett seconded the motion.
The only birthday for January was Shirley Mitchell, who turned eighty years young. The group sang happy birthday to her.
Crossett then presented the program by reading a couple of poems “Happiness” and “How rich are we?”
The group all had a good discussion on these topics.
Next month everyone is to bring something on Valentine’s Day, Washington or Lincoln.
Crossett closed the meeting in prayer.
