The Twentieth Century Club met on Monday, Oct. 9, at the home of Sandi Eaves our hostess with Glenda Ware serving as co-hostess. Glenda Ware, president, called the meeting to order. The minutes were given by Sue Jones, assistant secretary, in the absence of the secretary Evelyn Boyle. Kay Sewell, treasurer, gave her report.
Old business was our sympathy expressed to Glenda Ware on the death of her sister, Linda.
New business was a reminder of the chili cook off on Saturday, Oct. 21. It was agreed to keep the present number of members and possibly add others at a later time.
Kay Sewell gave the opinion on dress codes in our country. The apparel had been changed in Congress for a more casual attire, but this was changed back to their professional ware. The way a person dresses has an influence on the way people think of them and the outcome they will receive. Being dressed up has an important part on behavior and the persons actions. The older generation has more strict ideas about the importance of being dressed properly and at the right time.
Sherry Wiseman presented the entertainment on Maya Angelou. She gave some of Maya’s thoughts on life. For example, I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things; a rainy day, lost baggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.
Another insight was that she had learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Kay Sewell gave her program on toys from her childhood. The first toy was a replica of a black stove that was used for cooking popular in the 18 and 19 hundreds.
Next was a Lone Ranger rocking horse with the words Hi Ho Silver printed on it. She also showed us Disney books, Mother Goose books and old maid cards from the 18 hundreds. The members got to take a look back to their childhood and remember some of the same toys they might have had.
