Snowmen were the guest of honor at the Jan. 8, 2020 meeting of Spring Creek Busy Bodies Association for Family and Community Education Club. The meeting was held at Sami’s Restaurant in Troy, Missouri, beginning at 11:30 a.m. with lunch. Ramona Irvine was hostess, and she used snowmen as table favors! Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies were served for dessert. 

The Thought for the Day: You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream! Roll Call: Tell about your favorite time in the snow! 

Ramona Irvine, president, presided over the meeting. Lois King, treasurer, gave the treasurer’s report. Plans were made for the 2020 year, and new program books were given to each FCE member. 

Recipes for BBQ will be tested in March for “Today’s Farmer” Magazine. The FCE members enjoyed drawing a snowman, with their eyes closed. The best snowman was drawn by Nancy Lacey. How many words can you get out of the word SNOWMAN, was won by Lois King, with 13 words! 

A virtual tour of winter and winter events was presented by Ramona Irvine. She also read a poem about the meaning of a Snowman. Door Prizes were won by Katherine Wilson and Audrey Ehlmann!
