The Camden Road Extension Homemakers Club recently held its monthly meeting.

The welcome was given by hostess Judy Cox, who served delicious snacks.

The meeting was called to order by Nancy Sumner, president. The thought read by Sumner was, “Make copies of important papers (wills, birth certificates, car titles, etc.) but don’t file the original and copy together.”

The Homemaker’s creed was read aloud by all members. The handy hint was read by Sumner — Designate one area for all your papers. The inspiration was read aloud by Patsy Wallace.

Members present included Esta Kealer, Wallace, Cox, Wanda Strickland, Wanda Felts, Andrea Hartley, Becky Boudra, Sue Holford, Elizabeth Ferguson and Sumner.

The roll call question was “Where do you store your important papers?” Answers included gun safe, lock box, hutch, bank safe, file cabinet and drawer.

Ferguson read the minutes. The treasurer’s report was given by Kealer.

The program was presented by Sumner, “Organizing Papers”. Organizing papers into four categories — active, keepers, VIPs, and discards. Examples of active include frequent use monthly bills. Keepers include tax documents, home improvement and health records. VIPs are social security card, marriage license, birth certificate, deeds, annuities and receipts for expensive jewelry and furniture. Discards are credit card statements, cancelled checks and junk mail.

Spring Council will be held May 1 at Jefferson County Extension Office at 9:30 a.m. On May 4, Relay for Life will be held at Watson Chapel High School. Boudra, Cox and Felts will bring brownies and cookies.

Hartley read aloud an article “Common Sense”. Project money, Pennies for Friendship and canned donations for Neighbor to Neighbor were collected.

The meeting was adjourned by Sumner.
