Greetings to all my sister members of GFWC. February brings us Black History
Month, Heart Awareness Month and of course, Valentine's Day. If you were not
aware, the beautiful arts and crafts submitted during our January membership
meeting were delivered by Jane and Bunnie when they attended the District 7 meeting on December 3 in Orlando. Arts and crafts from other clubs in District 7 were on display and judged in various categories. It should be no surprise to find that several of our members took first place in her specific category.
I spoke at the Legacy of Leesburg Republican Club on February 3rd. Barbara and Lucille were promoting membership and distributing Membership Kits. Lucille sold raffle tickets for another beautiful quilt which she donated to the club for the Quarter Auction.
And lastly, I have been thinking of the need for us to discuss environment. Since
we have no one who is interested in chairing this community service, I would like
to speak about it briefly. Years ago, when I was a child, I remember my mother
keeping items that I thought should be discarded. Since the depression came
before I was born, I had no idea of what people did during that era. Today, I
think it is an effective way to cut down on waste. I took the time to look up things
One item that was not listed was aluminum foil. I use it to line my pans
when cooking for easier clean up. I decided to rinse it off and keep it one more
time for the same purpose, so long as it is in good shape. Online there are so
many ways to reuse products. Paper goods , wrapping paper carefully
removed can be one of them. Plastic containers, plastic bags. No plastic straws,
eyeglasses can be donated, clothing, I can go on and on.
You will be surprised as you view the ideas that are there!
