After the business meeting, a luncheon of hearty vegetable soup, salad and peach cobbler was served. Door prizes of gift baskets, toiletries and decorated candles were awarded. Then the bake sale, country store and plant sale opened for all to shop at their leisure. An estate-size fern was offered for raffle before the afternoon session commenced.
