Sally Greathouse, 2nd Vice President and Ways and Means Chairman, gave the final total from the crepe sale at the New Cumberland River Fest. Rain on Sunday did not dampen spirits.

Betsy Wells and Dorothy Hawkes presented the evening's program, ICE Your Phone. This program encourages mobile phone users to enter emergency contact information into their mobile phone under the heading ICE, an acronym for In Case of Emergency. ICE allows paramedics or emergency responders to contact a designated relative or next of kin in an emergency situation in the event the user is incapacitated.
Refreshments were served by Debbie Peterson and Shirley Wildman. The next meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 7 at the Swaney Memorial Library.
