Art Department Program held by Modern Study Club

An Arts Department Program entitled "Let's Make Totes" was held by The Modern Study Club on Wed., Oct. 9, in the parlor of the First Christian Church with Joyce Morton, Arts Department Chairman, in charge.

The tote bags are being made, as a club art project, for patients at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center Hospital in Houston.

Club members used, and will continue to use their talents for a few more weeks, in getting all the totes sewn from the recommended pattern after others have cut totes out. When finished the totes are being decorated with cheerful designs by the painter-artists of the club.

The making of the tote bags is just one of the many ways The Modern Study Club has chosen to support the Cancer Research Center patients, as well as the work there, which is, and has been, one of their on-going projects for many years.

The thought-quote for the meeting was-"Imagination is the highest kite one can fly"-Laura Bacall

President Joyce Morton called the meeting to order. Pearl Gustafson, Treasurer, presented a statement of club finances. Margie Williamson, Scholarship Chairman, read a letter from Hardin-Simmons University concerning funds for Kelsey Riley, MSC-PHS Senior Scholarship recipient.

Catherine Travland, Second-Vice President of Western District, presented a report to club members from the TFWC Fall Board Meeting held Sept. 26-28, in Austin. She highlighted the following project/activities for the clubs consideration: the Texas Heritage Chairmen bring a Texas Historical moment at each club meeting; that clubs send their club history to the TFWC Archives at North Texas State University in Denton; have a Remembrance Day to acknowledge and honor Women Veterans, and consider the changes for easier club reporting to TFWC. Mrs. Travland also told of a Pajama Party Lockdown planned for all clubwomen of Texas on April 4-5, 2003 at the TFWC Clubhouse in Austin. Other activities are planned also.

Lena Harpham, Federation Counselor, spoke concerning the National World War II Memorial and the proud support the General Federation of Women's Clubs has given through it's clubwomen to help this grand idea be realized. She said, "By the Spring of 2004, the First National Memorial dedicated to those who served during World War II will be completed.

The generosity of GFWC clubwomen along with other donors has made this project a reality. No monument of granite and bronze, of course, can ever completely represent the suffering, sacrifice and achievements of the WWII generations. It can, however, serve as a continual reminder for generations that follow of the great debt we owe, individually and as a nation, to the extraordinary groups of Americans who fought and won WWII."

Secretary, Paula Fuller read the minutes of the previous meeting. President Morton told highlights of the Western District Fall Board Meeting held in Sanderson, October 5, including a resolution from Western District, which will be presented to the Texas Federation of Women's Clubs.

A fund-raiser bake sale is planned by the club on Friday, November 8 in the lobby at Security State Bank.

Roll call was answered by telling a fact we need to know about cancer prevention. The bi-monthly project for this meeting is to donate the club Scholarship for a graduating senior of Pecos High School.

Lena Harpham, Joyce Morton, and Doris Moorman served as hostesses for the gathering.
