Members of Nahunta Extension and Community Association Club talked about the upcoming ECA bazaar during their November meeting.
The event is scheduled for Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Maxwell Center.
Irene Johnson, Linda Aycock, Jean Pierce, Lois Sasser, Judith Aycock and Nancy Peele entered items in the Wayne County Regional Agricultural Fair in September and won blue, red and white ribbons for jelly, jam, crocheted headband, flowers, herbs, photos and antiques. A portion of their winnings were donated to the Community Soup Kitchen of Goldsboro.
The project for September was Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Members took shoeboxes they had packed full of toys and other items for children all over the country to the meeting.
Some donated money for postage.
The club collected 24 shoeboxes, which will be taken to the drop off station at Pinkkey Baptist church Nov. 15. From there, the shoeboxes will be taken to a distribution center in either Boone or Charlotte before they are finally shipped overseas.
Co-president and hostess Mary Friedman shared specific ways God had blessed her and her family this year. She concluded with a prayer of Thanksgiving.
Johnson won the door prize of farmhouse-style candle.
The next meeting will be a luncheon Dec. 2 at Lane Tree Country Club. Members will take staples and other items for the Community Soup Kitchen.
