Bunker Hill Club news

BUNKER HILL, Mo. - The September club meeting was called to order at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 10, by president Debbie Ziemianin. Hostess for the day was Betty. Her devotional was emphasizing the fact that we need to do things for others. Even the smallest deed is better by far than good intentions.

Roll call for the day was our favorite pie. Roll call was answered by Mary Sue Gordon, Arlena Painter, Debbie Ziemianin, Betty Higgs, Grace Brown, Bonnie Mc-Cool, Shirley Alps and Linda Johnson. The group wished Dorothy Houseman, Bonnie McCool and Linda Johnson happy birthday this month.

Show and tell given included Grace (bowl made by sister using clothesline rope and material), Shirley (Christmas wall hangings used as gifts), Mary Sue (picture of flying squirrel and a maple leaf quilt), Bonnie (pictures of Bunker gals and family) and Linda (pictures taken at Homecoming 09).

Secretary and treasurer's reports were read and approved. Flower fund report was given by Betty. The new flower fund balance is $166.08.

In old business, motion was made by Debbie and seconded by Betty to set up at Oktoberfest. The next luncheon on the square will be Monday, Sept. 28, with a variety of soups and ham/ beans.

In new business, Debbie and Linda to set up at local Wal-Mart to sell raffle tickets on this year's quilt. If anyone is interested in buying raffle tickets, call 223-7181 or 223-4684. The next monthly singing will resume on Saturday, Oct. 3, in the school house. Bring your instruments and voices and share with those who attend. An electrician did some work on the community center. Just a reminder that the community center is available to the public for activities. The charge for its use is a donation toward utilities used and upkeep. If you are interested in using the facility, call the above numbers for more information.

The program for the day by Betty was an interesting one on the facts and myths about copperhead snakes. It's that time of the year again to be watchful as they will be making their way into hibernation.
