From The Florala Garden Club President's Desk by Vera Whiddon Our plant sale went off wilb flying colors and our treasurey was increased to an amount that will surprise most of those who worked so hard ~o make it possible. There were all kinds of plants and delicious baked ca- kes, as well as canned jellies, preserves, etc., which proved attractive to all. The various offerings were soon sold out, with nothing left, but the me- mory. Our finance chairman is to be commended for this well thought out and planned sale, which proved such a suc- cess. She is finance chairman for the new club year and is already planning for a second sale.. Sadie says, "It will be an annual occurance", so start now to get your plants growing for an even bigger sale next year." Sadie Moon really gets things done in a first class way. We all are looking forward to our next meeting, which will be at the Fellowship Hall of the Baptist Church in the form of a covered dish supper, with all the trimmings. Be sure you don't miss it. The decora- tions will be in keeping with the good food. With Mrs. Jna- nita Radford as chairman of the social committee, we can be sure everything will be a number one. The date is May 13 -- be there! Until later, Vera.

Everyone entered by way of the back door, viewing the beauty of the yard with its Dorothy Per- kins roses, vari-colored iris, and numerous other flowers, which were blooming right up to the door, and then on the in- side as well, which demonstra- ted that someone had been hard at work, with beauty in mind. Dainty refreshments were served consisting of hot home- baked vienna biscuits, home- baked cake squares, toasted nuts and delicious punch-all, looking too pretty to eat, but such a joy to our taste buds when we did get started eat- lng. The President, Mrs. Linuie Harrison, called the meeting to order and asked Mrs. Nannie Hedge to lead in prayer, which she did, in a most impressive way, remembering those who were sick and sorrowful. Minutes of the previous meet- ing was read by the secreta~'y and approved as read, giving Mrs. Myrtle Lee Donaldson the praise of a well composed ac- count of the meeting, and win- ning for her "a most efficient secretary" title.

Mrs. Nanuie Hedge brought before the class the plight of her next door neighbor, who has a five year old son in Birming- ham hospital with a kidney transplant. Now the kidney has failed to function as it should. It makes it so hard for the boy's parents to get back and forth to be with him, as they have no car. llean McDonald gave a most impressive devotional on "The Men We Met at the Cross", explaining t.hat instead of giv- ing a devotional from the book of Women of the Bible, this special book was loaned her by Mrs. Peacock and it seemed to be so appropriate at this sea- son, so she gave it instead. Everyone enjoyed the narration Group Renamed In Honor Of Past Member United Methodist Women's sade workers.
