Seven members were present and the meeting opened with the Pledge of Allegiance. Co-hostess Jeanne Parker presented a meditation reading entitled "Layer of Dust". Hostess Bonnie Gregory presented "Valuing Diversity" as the lesson, stating that it is important that equal treatment is pro- vided to all persons regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orienta- tion and physical disability. Valuing diversity is'important in our everyday lives and it is expressed through verbal communication, body language and acceptance of differences. She examined the United States as a nation of diversity, noting that the population of the country has changed from 86% Cauca- sian, 3% Hispanic, 10% Black, and 1% Asian to 53% Caucasian, 25% Hispanic, 14% Black, and 8% Asian. Native Americans ac- count for less than a single percent of the population. She discussed the following definitions of concepts regarding di- versity: comfort zone, culture, cultural oppression, exploitation, feminism, homophobia, learning edge, marginalization, power- lessness, exism, socialization, social oppression and white privi- lege. She shared an action plan to promote diversity and to elimi- nate racism, sexism, etc. Members also discussed their ideas of di- versity. During the business meeting, it was decided that five cans of food will be brought by each member of the September meeting to be given to Jefferson County Community Ministries. Members were reminded that reading lists are due in October. Plans were made to participate in the Achievement Banquet, the Jefferson County Fair and a bloodmobile at the local fire de- partment in Shepherdstown. Volunteering food items or time at the bloodmobile were Bonnie Gregory, JoAnn Parker, Gretchen Weigel, Keitha LeMaster, Arvella Barr, Agnes Tabler Jean Scott, Nancy Sarra, and Linda Carter. A report was given by Gretchen Weigel on the Foundation Com- mittee's work. The September meeting will be held at the Mirror Boutique and Nancy Sarra will present the program on "Understanding Genera- tions".

From 1989 to 1995 the Rumsey Radio Hour was a popular month- ly radio program taped live before an audience in Shepherdstown and re-broadcast over 12 stations in West Virginia, Maryland, Vir- ginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. It featured music, dra- ma, and comedy with a full array of old-time radio sound effects. The show's volunteer ensemble was unable to keep up with the demanding pace, and consequently retired the show. In 2003, how- ever, members of the original cast brought the show back as an annual event, donated proceeds to the Shepherdstown Public Li- brary's Storyteller Fund, which brings professional storytellers to Shepherdstown area schools.
