During the past week, 1000 meals were served in our lovely dining room. Last Sunday's brunch alone ac- counted for 92. You know the old saying "You build a better mouse trap, etc". A nice, cooperative disposition ac- companies this gal's culinary talent. The recent Garden Club's Flower Show was successftd and pretty.

The entries included daffodils, tulips, hyacinths - all in various sizes; also other spring flowers and flowering tubers.

Maybe bird sanctu ries. By the way, West Virginia is considered a Bird Sanctuary. Care is an important project and this is the 20th anniversary of that; building on our seacoast and Atlantic islands was con- sidered; and the Garden Clubs suggested writing to your legislators and Governor to protest any movements against these projects. Women carry clout and should use it. The Lighthouse at Cape Hatteras and the Boone Trial received attention. Also suggested were free dumping areas to curtail dumping any place; insulation to conserve energy; ideas for con- servation of our natural resources. Our own Garden Club was complimented for answering all correspondence promptly and for our fine description of our Memorial Garden and the Iron Furnace. Mention was made of the number of state Garden Clubs - their donations to various projects; they had flower shows and 23 wild flower walks and now there are 3,50,000 members. This was an excellent report by Wanna and we could see that she had used her time ef- fectively. At our own Club meeting we gave out pencils and literature which had been given us by Southern States and we now thank them. Our new librarian for our Garden Club here is Lois Petti.We thank Dottle Woodall for having had it before this. There are many good books which can be used by the members. Speaking of Nature Walks, our Garden Club has one on May 11 along the Appalachian Trail starting at the home of Anna Marie Weare.

The 50-50 Club has one member, Sally Miller, who has agreed to teach anyone how to crochet or knit on some of the Tuesdays when they someone" else has a talent he or she would like to share. This is a generous idea and cne worth pursuing. Maybe some desires on your part, ff once made known, can evoke a willing teacher from the group.
