Twentieth Century Club met Thursday October 2 at the Garrettsville Library with Lucy Galadye as hostess.
Members were asked to bring a sample of something they collect. Samples included wooden boxes (one for embalming fluid) – no coffins. Angels were collected for the guidance and protection they represent. There were rocks, including old Alaskan quartz.
Christmas collections contained “The Night Before Christmas” books, musical boxes and mugs and Old World Santas (Pipka). There were collections of ducks and birds, some by Lenox and Jim Shore. There were Hummels and Precious Moments figurines, and, of course, Jane Bell collects bells.
Someone collects paper weights and another, fabric quilt squares (no quilt, just square). Another member collects kitchen tools with red handles.
The program brought up memories of collections some had forgotten they had. As one member so aptly stated, “It was a charming and unique program.”
The next meeting will be at the home of Jane Bell on October 16th. Members are asked to bring a package of diapers to give to “Safer Futures.”
