Carol Cramer presented the program, “The Business of Elections,” which was quite pertinent for this time of pending national elections. Cramer cited elections in a free society, as opposed to those in a dictatorship. She also gave a brief history of democracy citing the early Greek City States and their experimenting with this form of governance. Cramer also explained the difference between pure democracy and representative democracy, the Electoral College, the Founding Fathers’ forethought in writing the country’s constitution, and some of the requirements for voting in the November elections. Midge Casselman led members with the reading of the club’s constitution and by-laws.
Thirteen members answered roll call with their assigned subjects. President Hausler thanked hostess Norma Boone and co-hostess Ellen Neis.
Because Thanksgiving falls on Nov. 22, President Hausler reminded the ladies of meeting a week earlier on Nov. 13. She also reminded members to bring hats and mittens for Hope House.
The meeting was adjourned to enjoy chatting and refreshments. The next meeting will be Nov. 13 at the home of Ginny Neis.
