Our meeting Monday, April 8, was hosted by Pauline Simone and Dorothy Foster.
The secretary and treasurer’s reports were read and approved. The yearbook committee reported the sign-up sheet was finished and the topic for the coming year will be food and cooking. We reviewed our May trip to finalize plans. We discussed our August brunch, POP donation and increase of dues in August.
The opinion, given by Ruth Woody, was about how children need extra food in the home and students are given backpacks of food to help with this need.
Entertainment was provided by Sandi Eaves, who had the members make lists of vegetables, flowers and trees using the word April.
Glenda Baker provided the program about author Robert A. Heinlein. He was born in Butler and became a retired naval officer, aeronautical engineer and science-fiction author. He used scientific accuracy in his works, publishing 32 novels and 59 short stories. With his writing he became a dean of science-fiction writers.
Among Heimlein’s quotes: “A critic is a man creates nothing.” “Belief gets in the way of learning.” “Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
The May meeting was our trip to Nevada to tour the Bushwacker museum, jail and Norman metalworks. Our August meeting will be the brunch to start the year.
