"Beauty Be- fore Comfort" is on our 2005 suggested reading list and af- ter Diane's report we can un- derstand why. This is the sto- ry of the author's grandmoth- er during depression era West Virginia. Her grandmother "re- fused to succumb to the desper- ation that surrounded her. In- stead Aneita Jean rouged her cheeks and kicked up her heels and did her best to forget the reality of life in an insular com- munity where your neighbors could be as unforgiving as the Appalachian landscape." During our meeting the mem- bers of the Kabletown CEOS did their very best to resist the chocolate temptations that were spread out on the tables before us. Instead we were able to make 55 Easter Bags to be given to the Meals on Wheels program in Charles Town. Each year at this time we get togeth- er and make something for the Meals on Wheels recipients to have with their Easter meal. We also filled a large Easter basket with goodies to be given to the Boys and Girls Club and another for Shenandoah Nurs- ing Home. A little craft item for the bakets were colorful de- coupage eggs. Kitty Zollner asked for vol- unteers to make cookies, sand- wiches, etc for our Charles Towers Tea Party on April 22. This will be a first for the Ka- bletown CEOS and we are look- ing forward to a delightful af- ternoon with the residents of Charles Towers. Invitations are being prepared and will be de- livered to all the seniors in resi- dence. Jolene Stanton related her adventurous journey with Ex- tension Agent Judy Matlick and Council President Joann Viands to Charleston on March 14 for WVU Day at the legisla- ture. About 72 miles from the capital, they ran into the "slight chance of snow flurries" that turned into a "white out" with 5 inches of snow. As Jolene re- ported, they slid into Charles- ton about 2 1/2 hours later. It was well worth the trip, as they were able to meet with Sena- tors Unger and Yoder and Del- egates Wysong and Tabb. The preservation and upkeep of Jackson's Mill was discussed along with the proclamation signed by Governor Manchin to declare March 13-19 as Living Will Week. We want to wish a speedy re- covery to club members Virgin- ia Nash, Kirk Price and Caro- lyn Barnes.

Woman's Club Meets at Trinity Chapel Red Hats Feet kicked and fists flew last Friday and Saturday, when members of the Red Hat Soci- ety met the Black Belts at Mar- tial Arts USA in Charles Town. Rose Gripka's Rambling Roses Rowdy Rebels donned red hats and purple attire to pay a visit to Fifth-degree Black Belt Tae Kwon Do Master Su H. Chang. On Friday night the ladies were treated to a sample class of dancing Tae Kwon Do style. Master Chang began with slow easy warm-up and stretching exercises, then turned up the music and the ladies kicked and punched to the beat of South Korean and American rock. In some cases red hats flew off heads to the floor but the mo- tion continued. It was a lively evening with good fun and lots of exercise. The ladies left feel- ing energetic and happy. On Saturday morning the mood calmed for a lesson in Tai Chi/Qi Gong, the ancient art of deep breathing and medita- tion-in-movement. Once prac- ticed by only a handful of stu- dents, Tai Chi is now practiced all over the world. The ladies, in red and purple, and Mas- ter Chang in a traditional Tai Chi uniform warmed up and stretched once again. Then beautiful South Korean medi- tation music slowed the pace for the smooth, graceful move- ments and deep breathing of Tai Chi. This time they left feeling relaxed, refreshed and uplifted for the day. The ladies learned that mature adults can obtain excellent health benefits GFWC Shepherdstown Woman's Club met Friday, March 18, at Trinity Episcopal Church.
