Under unfinished business, Betsey Ryan updated us on the community directory.

Michaud reported that the Yellow Tulips Project planting was accomplished by she and members, Hutchins, Quiet and Suzanne Raymond at Marion Doore Park.  

Under new business, donations were accepted for the Kiwanis Christmas Project. 

The Mason’s Christmas tree raffle was explained by Hutchins. She will be chairing both committees.

Many items were donated for the food cupboard. 

Our annual Christmas party for our members will be held at Austin’s home on Dec. 6. It will be pot luck of both savory and sweet dishes to share. Instead of bringing ornaments to swap, a different approach this year will be to bring unwrapped items for the needy. Leighton will be in charge of entertainment by furnishing songs and games. 

Meeting was adjourned to enjoy refreshments provided by hostesses Michaud and Austin. 

Austin then gave a program on Linus blankets. She has served on the committee for several years. She proceeded to show us several quilts and blankets she had made. One was  a 9- patch quilt and Austin provided a short lesson. There will be a Linus Day in the spring.
