Members present were: Sue Foy, Doris White, Becky Thompson, Marcia Neel, Sue Tandy, Linda Cooper, Eulah Jaynes, Sandy Caldwell, Marilyn Lewis, Judy Tulley, Pat Hall, and Peggy Dixon.
The food for thought for November was "Who are you to judge the life I live?
I know I'm not perfect-and I don't live to be. But before you point your fingers, make sure your hands are clean." The flag salutes to the American and Christian flags, the creed and the mission statement were repeated by everyone.
Sue Foy gave the inspiration message titled "Known but to God." She said that at the Arlington National Cemetery there is a memorial tomb that contains the remains of unknown soldiers from various wars of our country. The inscription on the tomb reads: "Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God." We honor these men and women who put their lives on the line for us, our nation and our freedom. Greatness is not found in power, prestige, or wealth, but in character, goodness to others, service and humility. These are found in our military men and women. The most important thing in life is to be known to god and to know him as your personal Savior.
Sue Tandy led the song of the month "Over the River We Go." Everyone joined in singing "Happy Birthday" to Becky Thompson who celebrated a November birthday.
The roll call question was to share your favorite turkey fact from your book. It was quite interesting the many turkey facts and other facts that were shared.
