December 16, 2014 - The December Golden Harvest Ministries Club meeting was held Monday the 15th in the Fellowship Hall of the First Baptist Church. Jim Forbes called the meeting to order. He passed a note pad for members to write questions for David Chadwick to answer at the next meeting. David Bain led us in an opening prayer. Harold Hanson led the group as they softly sang “Joy to the World” and “Silent Night.”
Linda Bordelon, Blanch Haley and Patsy Parmer had birthdays this month and we sang for them. Walter and Ellen have their wedding anniversary in December and we sang for them. Joe Anderson asked the blessing on the food and everyone enjoyed eating the deliciously prepared foods.
Ed Miller conducted the installation of officers for 2015 by reading their responsibilities and presenting each with a Santa Hat. The officers are Joe Anderson, president, Helen Collard, Second Vice president of Membership and Linda Anderson, First Vice President of Programs. Alice West is Secretary/Reporter, Betty Green will be Treasurer and Melba Colman continues as Historian. For our program Ed Miller sang “O Holy Night” while Terri Miller accompanied him on the piano. Then Mrs. Miller played a medley of Christmas Carols on the piano. Then Mr. Miller sang “Mary did you Know?” The audience gave a big applause!
