Devotions were given by vice president Eloise Welsh, who read from REMINISCES, "St. Peter At The Gate". ("The last shall be first and the first shall be last.") The lesson, "Container Garden- ing," was given by Bonnie Carroll. The elderly, the disabled, apart- ment dwellers and cooks find con- tainer gardening handy especially growing the different herbs and annuals. They are decorative on sunny windowsills, patios, decks, porches and door steeps. Leave ample spaces for the roots of crops like leaf lettuce, peppers, herbs and most annuals. Appropriate containers should have adequate drainage. Larger tub containers rant MOTHER'S DAY SPECIALS INCLUDE: Rack of Lamb Prime Rib of Beef Fresh Salmon (with Red Pepper Sauce) Computers Topic of Club Nine members attended the April 21 meeting of the Leetown CEO Club held at the home of Ellie Hendricks.

A thank- you letter from St. Jude's Ranch for Children in Nevada was re- ceived for the used Christmas card fronts sent to them. The children recycle these cards and they are sold to the public. Their program has been expanded to also include Thanksgiving, Mother's Day, Eas- ter and other special occasion cards. Their most popular re- quests are for angel and teddy bear cards. Their address is St. Jude's Ranch for Children, 100 St. Jude Street, Boulder City, NV 89005-1618. The program on computers was presented by June Hedricks. It is becoming almost impossible to avoid dealing with a computer on a frequent basis. They control our cars, telephones, and many other household and office equipment. We can shop and buy items from around the world without leaving our homes. Computers allow us to communicate with people of simi- lar interests and there is virtually no topic you can think of that you cannot find a site for on the Inter- net. Those who have not been ex- posed to computers automatically think they are too complicated or see no reason to use or own one. The terminology is all strange but computer people will tell you that they learned by asking a lot of questions. Like any new learning experi- ence, people have to try things out, explore, and experiment in or- der to learn how to use a com- puter. Cardboard drawings described computers, keyboard, RAM, ROM, etc. Next month's meeting will be May 19 at the home of Virginia Tabb. New members are wel- come. ,51 ~" / "~ili Miss Senior Hi The 1999 Miss Jefferson Junior and Senior High Pageant was held April 10 at School.
