Thirteen members of the Wednesday Study Club met on Feb. 20, at the home of Julia Bletscher with Lennis Beichter as co-hostess.
As part of the meeting, members discussed books that they had read.
Officers for the 2013-2014 year were elected with Ruth Erwin as president; Deb Lowe, vice president and Wilma McAllister, secretary-treasuer.
Lennis was in charge of the program, which was a sharing of “Remembering a Relative.” Many interesting stories were told about family members who had been special either in present memories or from earlier times.
The hostess served delicious refreshments.
The next meeting will be March 10, with the calling committee notifying members of the place.
