Fortnightly holds January meet

Submitted by Lynne Cunningham


The Louisville Fortnightly Club met on January 9 at the Market Café. Hostesses were Mrs. Michael Cournoyer and Mrs. Charles Thomas. Mrs. Thomas read a devotional which likened the winter scene of nature to a dormant period in our lives when we need a spiritual revival, or rebirth. With spring comes new hope for a fruitful harvest and a fresh start for improvement in our lives with God’s help. Tasty refreshments were served at tables decorated in a celebration of a New Year theme; silver balls interspersed in chiffon-like fabric with small ceramic pitchers along the length of fabric.

The Knitting Ladies of Louisville, “Life is a Stitch” group were introduced by Mrs. Cournoyer who is a member and champion knitter herself. They displayed their handiwork; scarves, sweaters and shawls and talked about the good vibes coming from their regular gatherings. Mrs. Pat Sims showed a rug she made recently in the shape of the state of Mississippi.

Mrs. Rebecca Garavett, Mrs. Sandra Mayo, Mrs. Lisa Forster, Mrs. Pat Sims and Lynne Cunningham are the current and pioneer members of Life is a Stitch but they hope others will join them to enjoy the joy of knitting and crocheting and finding your bliss. They are sponsoring a workshop to provide wannabe knitters, stitchers of every hue with lessons and encouragement.

A short business meeting followed the program. Lynne Cunningham introduced her guest for the day, Mrs. Jimmy McMillin. Mrs. Andrew Eaves, President, presided and led the group in the Pledge to the Flag and in reciting the club pledge. Secretary Lynne Cunningham called the roll and Treasurer, Mrs. Stanley Hathorn, reported the balance of the treasury. An invitation was extended by Mrs. J. E. Calloway for the next meeting to be held on February 12.
