Jo Ellen Dale: Jo’s Jottings

At a regular meeting of the Kiwanis Club on Jan. 15, program chairman Jerry McCarter presented a novel idea.  Each of us was to be part of the program giving our name and sponsor’s name,  a little about our family, our career, hobby and future plans. As I had done just that the week before I was hard put to think of something else to say.
It was interesting to hear some of the facts about other members.  There was not enough time for everyone to do this and so it will be continued at the next meeting.

Again we have lost an outstanding citizen of Ray County.  The fact that some people had to stand in line for two hours at the visitation for Bob Vandiver on Wednesday evening was a tribute to this man who did so much for so many people.  He was a good friend to  many and will be remembered.

I was pleased to be invited to give the program at a meeting of the Women’s Circle at the United Methodist Church.  The refreshments served were delicious and they were very attentive and complimentary about what I had to say. Thank you, ladies.

Last Friday, Bonnie Pointer McCalley had visitors.  They were her niece and nephew, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Enloe.  They enjoyed lunch together and catching up on family news.

Saturday I made sure to attend the spaghetti dinner early put on by the ladies of the Eastern Star.  It was really good and there was such an array of desserts that it was hard to choose.  The portions were so generous that I will have to walk more next week so as not to gain too much weight.

Sunday after church I met friends at the 19th Hole.  As always I had the shrimp and salad, which as I have mentioned before is my favorite.  Some people were even braving the cold wind to play golf.  The carts were covered with clear plastic, which might have been some help.

I am looking forward to attending the Rotary Club meeting next Friday as Maria Antonia will be the speaker.  This time I will not be crashing the meeting as I was invited by former student Scott Farmer.

Winter blew in with a vengeance Monday morning and I got out my down-filled jacket.  After walking at the American Legion building I went to the Ray County Memorial Hospital to my volunteer job on the front desk. Bonnie McCalley joined me for lunch in the cafeteria and the food was delicious as I have said many times before.

Please keep sending your news and try to stay warm.
