Notes from Good Times Place

The Good Times Place held a potluck dinner on Thursday, May 13. Dave Ellis was emcee, and led the group in a prayer before the meal.

Ellen Henderson shared her tatting skills. She has followed in her mother's footsteps and continues to tat Bible markers for third graders at her church. Ellen also makes rugs on her looms. She says a denim rag rug will last for at least 15 years. She seldom is sitting without her tatting or crocheting.

Geranium plants were given as the door prizes. Karen Thompsen made May baskets for each place setting.

The frugal gardener, Julie French, was the speaker for the day. She shared information on gardening. She demonstrated making an "earth box? And repairing broken clay pots. Who would think that clay pots could be glued back together, then holes drilled and wire used to secure them. She recommends using Polident in warm water to wash the garden dirt off your hands. She warned us not to use this on your rings.

Elaine Kult was recognized for her efforts in volunteering. She has been responsible for our table decorations this past year. She was presented a plaque and a gift certificate for minibus rides.
