Posted September 26, 2013 at 12:35 pm

Ten members of the Twentieth Century Club met on Sept. 9 at the home of Sharyl Henry. In the absence of President Glenda Ware and Vice President Dorothy Foster, Secretary Georgia Detwiler presided over the meeting.

Updates were made to the Yearbook and a card was sent to Dorothy Jordan after her surgery.

Various items from the news were discussed for The Opinion: vaccinations, model airplane accident, etc.

Sharyl shared several poems with the group as part of the Entertainment segment.

Glenda Baker presented the first program of the year under this year’s topic: Museums. She chose “Presidential Museums” since she had been a docent at the George Bush Library and Museum in Texas.

Presidential Libraries and Museums, which fall under the National Archives and Records Administration, are privately funded and meant to preserve the history of each President. Presidential papers, gifts and documents are displayed for the public to view.

The first President to have a library/museum was Herbert Hoover in Iowa. There are currently 13 in all.

Glenda handed out several informative pamphlets to members.

Luella Phipps was co-hostess and served delicious refreshments to the group.
