Mt. Zion club hosted by Julia Snethen met Wednesday Feb 20, at the Fellowship Hall at the Rockville. United Methodist Church, at noon a very delicious carry-in dinner was enjoyed. Charlene gave the devotion. Roll Call was a US President’s wife you admire. Julia gave the secretary report; Beverly gave the treasure’s report. Dirty Bingo was entertainment for the afternoon, lots of fun. Ajar of pickled beets was a popular item, Charlene finally won it. We had three men visitors. “Men will be boys”, the saying proving true when one of them sprinkled water on the window making the ladies think the storm was moving in early, and they did. We ladies stared to finish up to get home before the storm. The men did say it was “artificial rain.” We unsuspecting were still hurrying. The men got to laughing so hard, that we women figured out the joke. We enjoyed the joke and went back to playing bingo to maybe win our favorite prize.
