Twelve members of the Crawfordsville Wednesday Study Club met in the Fellowship Hall of the United Church of Crawfordsville at noon on Wednesday, Sept. 20, for their annual salad luncheon. Reading team losers provided the salads, hostesses Cathy Williams, Clarissa Malmberg and Joan Anderson provided casseroles and rolls and drinks. The tables were decorated in an autumn theme.

Following the delicious meal and fellowship, the business meeting began by President Pauline Richardson thanking the hostesses.

The group than recited the flag salute and Club Collect in unison. The 2017-18 program books titled “Our Days with Wednesday Study Club” were distributed and read through. Interesting book briefs were given by several members. The secretary/treasurer read the minutes of the June 21 meeting and gave the treasurer’s report.

The program was “Literature Day” led by Wilma McAllister, who gave the reading results for 2016-17. The winning team had read a total of 220 books; the losing team a total of 207 books. Wilma passed out lists of favorite books to all members and gave some interesting statistics of this and past years. New reading teams were then determined for 2017-18.

The next meeting will be Oct. 18, the time to be announced. The theme will be “History Day.”
