The Wellsville Crescent Club met at the home of Carol Cramer Jan. 15. Vice President Midge Casselman opened the meeting, as the president was ill. Casselman welcomed all and read the quote of the month. Two “recent first ladies,” Laura Bush and Michelle Obama, were presented. Betty Edwards related Bush’s family background in Texas and her college training and career as a librarian and teacher. She continued this emphasis during her White House years. Dorothy Jones told of Obama’s family and growing up in Chicago and her education in sociology and African studies. She also is emphasizing these community interests during her tenure in the White House. Obama is famous for her White House vegetable garden to promote awareness of better nutrition.
Twelve members answered roll call. A motion was made and passed to have both the treasurer and the president sign the signature card at the bank so financial business can be enacted in an emergency. Thank you notes from Hope House and the Wellsville Library were read. Two get-well cards were passed around and signed for ailing members Norma Boone and Renata Watts.
The meeting was adjourned to enjoy refreshments served by the hostess and co-hostess Flo Lyon. The Feb. 19 meeting will be at the home of Dorothy Jones.
