There will not be a breakfast
meeting next week as that is the date of our annual Christmas party
which will be in Pocahontas at the Imperial Dinner Theater. The dinner
will be served at 6:30 PM followed by the production of The Wizard of Oz
at 7:30. The location of the Imperial Dinner Theater in Pocahontas is on
Hwy. 304 East, across from the Black River Technical College. Try to car
pool with another couple. The dress will be casual.
The Board of Directors meeting will
be Thursday, December 16th, at Couch’s Restaurant at 6:30AM.
Any member is welcome to attend the board meetings. All officers are
urged to attend.
Correction to the newsletter dated
November 30: Art Teacher Laura Kessinger is indeed the Art teacher at
NIC and Fox Meadow IC, but she was not the judge of the contests. Our
local contest was judged by Dr. Charlotte Jones, who has an art school
on Main St., downtown.
Our program this week was given by
Dr. Kristine Biondolillo, Professor of Psychology at ASU. Dr.
Biondolillo talked about the new Arkansas Bio Science Institute at ASU,
which is 1 of 5 bio science research centers which came about from the
state tobacco settlements. She also suggested that our club may want to
have a tour of the Bio Science Center, which she could arrange. The
mission of the center is to support good science and outreach research
programs by students and faculty.
Brother Bruce Tippit, Pastor of the
First Baptist Church, will be our speaker on December 21st.
Bring a guest that morning.
We still have many pecans to sell.
See Lion Bill Dickens at his business, the Cache Beauty Supply on
Highland, for your supply of pecans. They make great gifts.
