The Junior Woman’s Study Club met on Nov. 8, at Grace Place. Hostesses were Marsha Hagler, chairman, Darlene Rydell, Janie Kollman, Patsy Bartosh, Edith Remmel and Mae Teggeman. One guest, Grace Bulgerin, was present.

The tables were eye catching with cornucopias and bright pumpkins of various sizes. A delicious traditional turkey meal was served.

Two members provided impromptu programs. The newest member, Marsha Beckermann, grew up in the Houston area and had the advantage of astronauts teaching her science classes. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, she spent most of her career supervising the diets of U.T. athletes as a registered dietician. Her last nine years of employment were with the Longhorn Foundation as Special Events Director. Now retired, she is enjoying spending time with her family.

Anne Mehevec Wentrcek shared her experiences traveling on a Christian mission trip to the Peruvian Amazon. She took valuable assets with her –– peanut butter and Nutella as gifts. But, prayer was what was most appreciated. Wentrcek plans to make a return trip.

The business meeting was called to order by President Betty Inman, and Secretary Marcia Hagler read the minutes. Pat Werner reported that the Taylor Public Library is willing to store the clubs older scrapbooks in their archival room. This was voted on and after proper labeling the club will move the books for preservation.

Patricia Felfe invited anyone interested in helping to raise funds for the library to attend meetings of the Taylor Library Foundation Board on Jan 8. Meetings are open to anyone interested in helping to raise funds.
