Three Arts Club holds Nov. 9 meeting

The Nov. 9 meeting of the Lynchburg Three Arts Club was held in the delightful community room at Cape May, Wilmington. President Denise Minton opened the meeting by having Nancy Lippert read the club collect. In the absence of our secretary, no minutes were read. Treasurer Becky Davidson gave the treasurer's report and collected our yearly dues. Roll call was answered by showing pictures of our favorite pets. Our club theme this year is our favorite things.

The Christmas tree committee is to be commended for doing such a good job trimming the tree in a Victorian theme for the Historical Society's annual community decoration of their building.

Everyone signed up for food items to bring for the Christmas meeting. It was decided to again contribute to the Children's Services Christmas fund.

Two books are up for consideration for the February book review, "The Help" and "The 19th Wife." We will decide at the December meeting.

Denise Minton had a very interesting and informative program of her favorite hobby, knitting. She gave us an interesting history of the very beginning of knitting, which started with the Muslims who knitted for Christians. "Knit" means "knot" in Dutch. Knitting was also encouraged during the second World War for the troops. She printed out two patterns for us to try and also knitted some examples of the different stitches.

Ellen Pennington, our hostess, served a delicious dessert course at beautifully decorated tables and gave away the centerpieces as door prizes. Attending were Denise Minton, Cathy Farkus, Ellen Pennington, Wendy Johnson, Becky Davidson, Nancy Lippert, Doris Randolph, and Nancy Shaffer.
