    The program was given by Jean Davis, club member, and her husband, Sam, who started making baskets upon his retirement from Southern States Cooperative, 16  years ago. Jean discussed the history of making baskets and how it started many, many years ago back to the time of Moses. She gave the interesting history of the making of Nantucket baskets that have a hinged handle and Sam then told of the procedures to go through to weave baskets.

    We really enjoyed the little bit of snow we had. The kids had enough snow to have a snowball fight. I think Mackenzie and Tristan got the best of Ethan. It was fun to watch them all play. We are still hoping for a snowman kind of snowfall though. I know my cousin, Glen, would love to have some snow too.

    BIRTHDAYS. Happy birthday wishes go to Karoline Peeters, Leda Rigdon, Rhonda Copelin, Cameron Larrison, Mike Miller, Calen Wilson, Christine Miller and Skye Ash.
