Dr. Willgoos spoke on the impor- tance of national defense, and since this is the first election in the third millennium it must be taken seriously. Peacetime international en- gagements should be shared by our allies, and preparations should also be made for the future in this area. What is best for America, and are these engagements in the in- terest of our country - will they im- prove our life or will they be a de- terrent? We cannot possibly be po- licemen to the world. It is also time that we worked to unify our people instead of (as some are doing) try- ing to divide us. The early immi- grants were proud to be Americans and worked to unify the country. A most interesting talk. Dr. Willgoos presented a medallion from France, commemorating the Omaha Beach Landing at Nor- mandy, to the Regent.

SUMMIT POINT CEOS CLUB "Birds in Your Backyard" was the program topic for the Summit Point CEOS Club at their March 9 meeting. President Mary. Jean Light was the program leader for the evening. She stated that there are 20 million serious bird watchers in the United States. Many others just enjoy watching the birds in their own yards. She gave four main hints ibr identifying birds. These include looking for the size from tip of bill to end of tail, such as small being compared to a pen- cil, medium to a ruler, and large to a bread box. Second, check the range of the bird. A good book on birds will give the areas in which various birds will be seen. If the bird you identi- fied is only located in the west and you are in the east - try again. Third, look at the bird first then check your book. Check the size, color and other characteristics first, as the bird may fly away as you are turning pages. Fourth, practice looking for the most obvious characteristics such as color, size of bill, body and wings. Books such as guides from Peterson's, National Audubon So- ciety, and Golden Books, and magazines such as Birds and Blooms will help you identify and enjoy the birds in your backyard. During the program, various members related their own experi- ences watching and identifying birds. One member and her family have helped with a bird count sur- vey for a university. After the program, the presi- dent reminded members of the up- coming area spring meeting in Romney, and the county spring meeting. She gave out the reading list for 2000. The club voted to make donations to the Camp Frame Building Fund and the South Jefferson Library Building Fund. MOLERS CEOS CLUB LEARNS "HOW TO COMMUNICATE LOVE" Moler's CEOS Club recently learned "[tow to Communicate t~ove," a program was given by Mrs. Betty Fraim, wife of Pastor Doug Fraim. A quiz was first given on some- one we thought had a loving per- sonality. Most everyone had a lov- ing personality to share and ex- plained why the person was a lov- ing person. Some of the skills for communi- cating love are: Smile, appear joyful and be kind. Loving yourself will help cre- ate an appearance of love and might catch on. If you do not love yourself, you will not be able to love others. Express gratitude and appre- ciation freely and often to others. Help others in need and send thank you notes and use please and thank you as part of your ver- bal communications. Deal peacefully with those who show anger. Behavior changes when people are excluded. Every- one wants to be included and needed, it is a basic human need.
