The Home Culture Club met for the annual anniversary party on Thursday, May 4 at noon at the Keyes Bank meeting room. Although it was a chilly, wet and dreary day outside, the tropical theme inside worked wonders in raising damp spirits.
The members present enjoyed appetizers that included fruits and cheese spreads while members arrived. Then salad selections and desserts completed the meal. The food items were served on brightly colored plates.
After the meal, outgoing president Susie Odell read the history of the Home Culture Club, which originally started as the Stitch and Chatter Quilting Club in 1935. There were six original members. Faye Pitzer is one of those six original members. In 1936 the name was changed to Home Culture Club as they had grown weary of quilting.
With the assistance of incoming president Linda Gray, Susie created a garden picture from a barren desert canvas by adding the flowers that personified the attributes of the club officers. Officers for the new year include: Linda Gray, president; Ginger Odell, vice president; Deanna Francis, secretary-treasurer; Mildred Cox, parlimentarian; Susie Odell, historian; and Nancy Roberts, reporter.
Those attending the anniversary party were: Mildred Cox, Linda David, Deanna Francis, Linda Gray, Elizabeth Hinderliter, Susie Odell, Faye Pitzer, Nancy Roberts, Dorothy Sechler, and Carolyn Shryock.
The Home Culture Club members will now turn their time to creating craft and food items (including the famous Buffalo Chips) to sell at the Country Store during Santa Fe Trail Days. The club will also host the Old Timers Coffee on Saturday morning, June 3.
