Willing Workers EHC members get tips on happiness makeover

Willing Workers of White Hall’s Extension Homemakers Club met recently in the meeting room of White Hall Library for its regular meeting.

President Cheri Aronowitz welcomed everyone and asked Brynn Koschel to read the Thought of the Month — “Sometimes Angels are Disguised as Mothers”. Karen Needler, vice president, led the Homemaker’s Creed and Mary Wall read the Handy Hint — “A frozen, saturated sponge in a zip lock bag makes an ice pack that won’t drip all over when it melts.”

Sue Medlock gave the Inspiration from Ecclesiastes 2:26. Members answered roll call by answering the question, “What Makes you Happy?”

Members present were Aronowitz, Catherine Atkinson, Peggie Barbaree, Jo Ann Carr, Sarah Payton, Sara Hester, Sheila Childers, Needler, Dee Kindrick, Medlock, Marnette Reed, Elizabeth Wall, Koschel and Mary Wall. Louise Dunemn, mother of Childers, was a guest.

Karen Needler presented the program on “Give Yourself a Happiness Makeover.” She named 10 things that can make you happier.

Barbaree, community service chairman, reported that a few cancer turbans needed to be finished.

Koschel reported that a group of eight went on the club fellowship trip to Old Mill in North Little Rock. They had lunch at David’s Burgers and visited the River Market, Statehouse Museum and rode the trolley. She is working on setting up workshops on making a yo-yo T-shirt, fabric painting on an apron or table runner, a cookie swap in November and a trip to North Arkansas in the fall.

Atkinson reported that Reed had gotten the 10 wreaths that were needed to ensure all patient doors at the White Hall Nursing and Rehabilitation Center had wreaths on them and that she had been to the nursing home and placed pinwheels on all the wreaths.

Carr reported Aronowitz was the last member to tell the club members three things that they might not know about her. This project was started in June of 2013 with two members each month telling things about themselves.

During the business meeting, Aronowitz said the White Hall Food Pantry was very appreciative of the cereal collected for them each month. The quarterly birthday dinner was discussed.

Aronowitz presented the following certificates and pins: 25 years to Barbaree; 10 years to Medlock and five years to Childers. Other 25-year members are Reed, Carr, Patsy Johnson and Barbara Rushing.

Hostesses were Hester and Needler.

The club meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the White Hall Library. Those interested in learning more about Extension Homemakers, may call any member or Mary Ann Kizer at 870-534-1033.
