The Verdigris OHCE (Oklahoma Home and Community Education) Club recently met in the home of Sharon Hicks.  In order to better coordinate with the monthly County Council meetings,  the Verdigris Club will meet the SECOND Thursday of each month (instead of the third Thursday) at 9:30 a.m. at the Verdigris Town Hall.  This will be effective in October.

After the flag salute and devotion, minutes of the last meeting and treasurer’s reports were read and approved.  Plans were made to attend the 4-County Leader Lesson Training August 28th at the Claremore Technology Center.  Topics for training and members to attend them are:

Helpful tips to conflict resolution – Cheryl Shelton, Stocking up/Pantry Essentials – Ruth Haynie, Sheet Pan Suppers – Sharon Hicks and Carol Whitmire, Internet Safety for all Ages – Dinah Nichols. With the Rogers County Fair approaching, members committed to items to be entered for the Club. 

OHCE members from all of the Rogers County Clubs will be Superintendents at the fair and many hours will be volunteered to setting up booths, taking entries, assisting judges for various categories in the OHCE Sections as well as the many Open Class booths.  

The OHCE Club will begin collecting “Box Tops” for the Verdigris Schools to be redeemed for needed items for the school.  New member, Denise Dennison will be Chairman for this project.
