Fraser stays busy

By Norma Brand

   The Fraser Ladies Get Together Club held their monthly meeting on Wednesday, May 12 at the Fraser Community Center. The hostesses were Gini Donnelly and Karen Fowler. They had the tables decorated with colorful daffodils from Gini’s garden and streamers of crepe paper. The meeting was called to order by vice president, Peggy Ball, secretary, Oreta Stuart read the minutes and treasurer, Norma Brand gave the financial report.

   The Father’s Day breakfast was discussed, the 4-H clubs on the hill will not be handling the breakfast this year. The Get Together Club voted to take over the responsibilities for this year. It has always been a fun Father’s Day event for the area and everyone wanted it to be held again this year. The price for the meal will be $5 for adults and $2.50 for ages 12 and under.

   The menu will be pancakes, scrambles eggs, sausages, biscuits and gravy, juice, coffee and milk. Watch for the advertising and plan to treat that special man in your life to a tasty breakfast. It will be held on Sunday, June 20, which is Father’s Day, from 7 -11 a.m.

   The meeting was adjourned, and while everyone enjoyed a tasty lunch a game was played. The name of a famous person was assigned to each person. A tag with the name was attached between the shoulders so the person could not see it. The instructions were to ask questions that could be answered with “Yes” or “No” to identify the name. Oreta Stuart won a jar of crab apple jelly for guessing that her famous persons name was Abraham Lincoln.

   Judy Berreth won the White Elephant gift. Secret Sister gifts were exchanged and shared. The next meeting will be June 9; hostesses will be Delores Watson and Bev Bailey.

   A meeting to discuss the up coming “Yard Sale” was held by the members after the regular meeting. Gini Donnelly is in charge of organizing this fundraiser event to benefit the Fraser Community Center.

   Donations are needed if you have any usable household items please call Gini at 435-4525, Norma Brand at 435-4354, or contact any of the club members. Clothing will not be accepted. The yard sale will be held on Saturday, June 5 at the Fraser Community Center from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

   Remember as you are doing your spring housecleaning, set aside your usable items for this fundraiser. Plan on spending Saturday, June 5 on the hill.

   The Rebekah Lodge is planning a plant and glassware sale and there will be other sales to attend.

   Raffle tickets are sold each year to support the Weippe Volunteer Fire Department. Mark Fowler sold tickets to Steve Brand, after the sale on Saturday Steve received a telephone call. He was told to come to the fire department and pick up his prize, which was a $100. It pays to take a chance, so when next year comes around, help out our local fire department by purchasing some tickets, you may be the next winner.
