Mecklenburg CEOS Club The July meeting of the Mecklenburg CEOS Club was held at the home of Nancy Sarra. The hostess presented a meditation reading a poem "The Gift" and a Christmas prayer. Jean Scott discussed "Char- actor Counts" which is one of the goals of the Family Com- mittee. She stated that we must be accountable and must strengthen the moral values of the next generation. We need to incorporate the Six Pillars of Character-Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fair- ness, Caring and Citizenship in all that we do. Some of the things we need to incorporate are honesty, courage, loyalty, tolerance, consideration, self- control, open-mindedness, kindness, compassion, forgive- hess and cooperation. "Christmas in July" was presented by the hostess. She began her discussion by saying that as we age Christmas tradi- tions change and the older fam- ily members should be open to the ideas of the younger family members. Members shared family Christmas traditions. Making sugar cookies and decorating them has become a tradition of one family. There is a friendly competition within the family members. One mere: her stated that opening gifts on Christmas Eve and getting to- gether on Christmas Day is their family tradition. Another member shared that when her family lived in Colorado a tra- dition of their church was to take the Christ Child to a home and then the next night the group would tam the child to another home. 'I~wo members stated that attending ~ Eve ser- vice is a tradition. One stated that ~ are opened according to age. It was suggested that a Nativity scene be used that children can play with as the Bible story is read. Other ideas for traditions were making homemade giRs; making an or- nament of a picture of each child to hang on the tree; spon- soring a needy family; letting children help with cookies, picking out a live tree together, opentag home to those who are unable to get to their homes Open Wednesday-Sunday 11am-9pm 1270 Washing~.n Street Harpers FerEy/Bolivar 304.535.2582 www, anvilrestauf~ntcom listening to favorite carols and watching favorite movies with the family.An important aspect is to change with the times.

Shewbridge, Jr., and Mr. and Mrs. James W. Hamilton announce the engagement of their daughter, Chastidy Sue Kimble-Shewbridge, to Mark Allen Bender, the son of Ms. Jeanne Bender, of Alabama, and Mr. Richard Bender, of Maryland. The couple will wed on Saturday, Au- gust 23. Chastidy is a 1995 graduate of Jefferson High School and is employed by Endless Summer RVs. Mark is a 1988 graduate of Jefferson High School and is self-employed by M&B Builders Country & Flag Topic For CEOS The Jefferson/Rippon CEOS Club met at the Extension Of- fice July 7. The subject of the meeting was "Our Country- Our Flag." For devotions, Hazel Spears used topics related to the flag: "The Flag is Many Things," and "Les We Forget." Joann Viands told the cor- rect ways to display the flag and how to dispose of it when it is faded and torn. She read some of its history, beginning with George Washington's first battle flag, carrying the Union Jack in its upper left hand cor- ner and the 13 red and white stripes until our present one with the 50 stars on a blue field representing the 50 states and the 13 stripes representing the 13 colonies. Mrs. Viands had a flag that had flown over our nation's capital in April 1987. It was presented to her by Mrs. Isabelle Albright of the Women's A~ary of the VFW in honor of her brother, who gave his life for our country in the Korean Conflict. Using this flag, Jennifer Snyder, a former Girl Scout, folded it while the meaning of each of the 12 folds represented was being read. A video, "Our Country," was viewed with many beautiful scenes from our land shown. When viewing the flag, we think of liberty, freedom and pride. The American flag has accompanied mankind on its greatest achievements. It flies at both poles, on the moon, and sits on top of Mount Everest. The next meeting for the club will be a work detail on August 4. Baby blankets are to be made to be given to new- borns at Jefferson Memorial Hospital. New members are welcome and can contact any club mem- ber or the extension office at Bardane. Members are encour- aged to bake cookies for the fair bake sale which is scheduled for the evenings of August 18 and 19.
