 Extension Homemakers Meet at Pam Bever’s Charlottesville Home

Feb. 28, 2007 - The regular meeting of the Town and Country Extension Homemakers was held on Tuesday, February 20, at the home of Pam Bever near Charlottesville. President Pam Bever called the meeting to order. The pledge to the American flag and the Homemaker's Creed were recited in unison. For devotions Bever read an anecdote regarding how “a house is not a home; a home holds your memories.”

The roll call was answered by seven members on "What is your favorite chocolate treat?"

Kathryn Waits presented the cultural arts lesson on the Madonna of the Trails statues, such as the one located in Glen Miller Park in Richmond. The DAR sponsored these statues that were placed in 12 locations along the Old National Road. The statutes cost $1,000 each and the one in Richmond was dedicated by Harry S. Truman on October 28, 1928. Truman helped select the Richmond site and attended the dedication.

For the health and safety report, Melody Zapf told of a health drink that is reported to improve joint health. It’s called "Joint Juice" and is available at Sam's Clubs. She said individuals should drink one eight-ounce serving a day. It has a tangerine taste and contains 10 percent fruit juice and the additive glucosamine for joint health.

The Spring Tea will be held on Tuesday, March 27, in the auditorium at the New Castle-Henry County Public Library. The cost is $1 and each person attending is to bring her own teacup. The program will be on Israel. Seven members signed up to go and will eat supper somewhere before attending the event.

The lesson was given by Kathryn Waits on "Preservatives - What are all of those chemicals in my food?" Waits reported additives to food are used to preserve, aid in processing, add nutritional value, add flavor, and/or add color. In the levels commonly used, food additives are safe for the vast majority of people.

However, some people are sensitive or allergic to certain preservatives. Some food additives could be eliminated, but sacrifices in the quality, quantity, availability and price of our food would be necessary.

The next meeting will be the annual salad bar at Zapf’s home beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20.

The meeting was adjourned following the lesson to delicious refreshments served by Bever. Those attending were Sonnie Thompson, Pam Bever, Diana Lee, Melody Zapf, Sue Willcox, Brenda Reece and Kathryn Waits.
