KEMP–Tuesday the Cedar Creek Lake Women’s Club brought nonperishable food to present to local food banks for Make-A-Difference Day.
The food will be divided among the Community Food Bank at Cedar Creek United Methodist in Tool, Care and Share Food Bank at First Baptist Church gun Barrel City, and the MAGS – Good Samaritans at First United Methodist in Mabank.
Project chairman for the event is Ruth Pimm and co-chairman is Nell Alspaw.
Speaker for the luncheon, held at Cedar Creek Country Club, was Carol Brandon.
Brandon presented a review of “Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven,” by Fanny Flagg.
Her humorous narrative centered around the life of an elderly woman residing in the small town of Elwood, Mo.
Following an accident in which the woman fell off a ladder in which the lady was pronounced dead at the local hospital, she took a trip to Heaven but then returned to bring back a message that we are here to live a joyful and full life.
The next meeting is set for Tuesday, Nov. 27. The program will be the “Wit and Wisdom of Will Rogers” presented by Ken Freehill.
The following meeting will be moved up one week to Tuesday, Dec. 18.
