Chilcote Questers met Sept. 6 at the home of Virginia McCurdy with Phyllis Eisele as co-hostess. Eleven members were present with four unable to attend. President Mary Levy asked that roll call be answered by explaining what each person’s favorite antique was they had purchased the past summer. The secretary read the minutes, which were corrected, then approved as corrected. The treasurer’s balance was given and bills were submitted, approved and paid. Address corrections were made to this year’s yearbook.
A report of the June trip to the Amanas was given. Eisele presented several doll-related books she found to use as Bev Mosier’s memorial in the library. They were approved. The Southeast Iowa Area Day, coming Oct. 6, was the major topic of discussion. Details were finalized, donators determined for various items and all were reminded of the Oct. 5 set-up.
McCurdy gave the program talking about as well as displaying family pieces that ranged from Indian artifacts found on her home farm to dishes from the collections of older family members. Dessert was served and the meeting adjourned at about 10 p.m.
The October meeting will not happen and is replaced by the area day.
The November meeting will be at Mary Levy’s home with Levy as co-hostess and Wendy Langan giving a program on Washington artists past and present.
