Thirteen members of The Twentieth Century Club met at the home of Sherry Wiseman on Monday, April 8. Jean Wernel served as co-hostess.

After secretary and treasurer reports, the group signed up for next year’s duties. There was discussion concerning the May meeting location and details, as well as those of the August meeting. It was decided to meet on at noon Monday, May 13, in the Sac Osage REA meeting room, with meal catered by Loetta Bowyer.

Renewals for the POPS Museum and Friends of the Library were approved.

Kay Sewell gave The Opinion on a Wall Street Journal article concerning 8th Grade testing to determine which high school students would get in to in NYC. There was also a continued discussion on drones, their uses and the rules to follow using them.

Pauline Simone quoted sayings from comedian Steven Wright for the Entertainment segment.

The Program, presented by Pauline, was centered on April Fool’s Day and its origin. Two possible accounts were noted: 1) a celebration of the Spring Equinox and 2) a change in the calendar making April 1st now January 1st. Those not being aware of the calendar change were the recipient of pranks and jokes, calling it a “fool’s” error.

Meeting was adjourned to enjoy refreshments and conversation.
