Welcome to Fall - colorful leaves, falling leaves, raking leaves (ugh), dropping temperature, getting dark early, trick or treaters and a Red Land Women’s Club meeting on Monday, October 20th at 7:30 pm. Hoping to see many of you at the meeting and learn how to keep yourself healthy and living longer.
Rita, you and your committee did another fabulous job and $1435.45 is phenomenal!!!! Members, we have 4 cases of sugar free and 4 cases of sassafras. Contact Rita if you need a jar or two. A special thank you again to the crew who made the apple butter.
Sheila Parker and Marianna Wood will be representing our club at the annual South Central Fall Conference this month. They will be bringing back lots of good ideas that they will share at the November meeting.
A special "thinking of you" to Mary Faith VanNoy, Connie Brinton, and Sandra Itterly who have had some health problems.
Last but not least sell those pies. It is a great money- maker for us plus the pies are delicious!!!
