The Troy Opera House was built in 1890. Today it is where Heckler’s Mainstreet Home and Hearth business is. Troy became a National Historic District in 2013. These comments were made by Ramona Irvine who presented a program on Troy, Missouri’s 200th Anniversary, at the Sept. 11 meeting of Spring Creek Busy Bodies/Millwood Culture Association for Family and Community Education Clubs. The FCE members enjoyed the history of  Troy as well as reminiscing about that history. Spring Creek Busy Bodies FCE Club has been part of that history since 1928, 91 years. 

Millwood Culture FCE Club has been part of that history since 1955, 64 years. 

FCE members gathered for lunch at Krumbly Burger at 11:30 a.m. The meeting began with a moment of silence remembering the people who responded to the 09/11/2001 tragedies, and who are now suffering from health issues from the tragedy. 

A flag salute ended the moment of silence. Roll Call was “your favorite joke.” Ramona Irvine, president, read the minutes from June 12, and Lois King, gave the treasurer’s report! King, Vivian Cody and Mary McCann reported on the Sept. 4 meeting of Lincoln County FCE Council. 

Plans were made to attend the East Central Fall District Meeting at the St. Charles County Extension Center in St. Peters on Oct. 4. 

The theme is “Reach for the Stars”. Each FCE member brought slightly used towels for Vet clinic in Troy. Nine FCE members

were at the meeting. Dorothy Cody and Vivian Cody won the door prizes for the day!
