Methodist Church of an Art Department program entitled, "Creative
Memories" organized by Margie Williamson, department chairman.

Nan Cate and Betty Smith, hostesses, served twelve members and four

Sharon Gooding made the presentation. She talked of the best care in
preserving your memorabilia in creative scrapbooks and photo albums.
"Albums peserve the past, enrich the present, and encourage the future,"
Gooding said. She also stated that albums protect your investment and
that photos will degrade if not stored properly.

Gooding suggested that photographs should be documented when preparing
albums and that creative cropping can be done and enhancing color be
added. She likes to plan albums by categories, holidays, special events,
persons, etc.

Joyce Morton, club president called the meeting to order. The Club
Collect was led by Gretchen Luna and Etta Sullivan led the pledge to the
flag of the United States of America, with members repeating both in
unison. Morton introduced and welcomed guest Bobbi Lang, Kay Allen, Iris
Reddick and Sharon Gooding. Doris Moorman, secretary pro-tem, read the
minutes of the previous meeting and Juracy McCall, treasurer presented a
statement of club finances. It was reported to Bob and Claribel

welcome note was to be sent to those ladies.

Payne reports for Marine duty

Return to top
Marine Sgt. Michael D. Payne, a 1991 graduate of Pecos High School of
Pecos, recently reported for duty with Security Battalion, Marine Corps
Base, Camp Pendleton, Calif.

Payne's new assignment is an example of how Navy and Marine Corps men
and women are assigned to ships, squadrons and shore commands around the
world. Whether serving in the Persian Gulf near Iraq or in the Adriatic
Sea near Bosnia, people like Payne are making a difference as they work
to improve their knowledge and skill as part of the most highly
technical naval force in history.

He joined the Marine Corps in September 1991.
