HVL Homemakers met on July 5, 2012 at the HVL Community Center. This meeting was the occasion of our “pitch-in- picnic,” so after the pledge and the Homemakers Creed, we “pitched In” and had a delicious lunch. Homemakers are very good cooks!
The treasurers report was given by Judy, and a devotion by Joan.
Ollie gave a Health and Safety report on “It’s a cold. It’s the flu. It’s a food borne illnes,”, comparing symptoms of each, and lots of hints how to avoid food borne illness.
Ollie made a report on the Council meeting. The sewing project has had one machine donated, with the promise of two more.

Betty has a list of ideas that each club could work on in the next year.

The Fall District Meeting will be Aug. 22 in Vevay.
We will take reservations and money at the August meeting.
Sally gave the lesson: “Life Made Simple.”
The main theme was to remove things that distract us; possessions and commitments that are no longer meaningful, household duties that are not necessary.
This include recycling, composting, clutter control, simplify your cooking, and household chores. Stress management is also very important.
Terri made a motion to close the meeting, with Lois seconded, and the meeting was adjourned.
