Home Representative Club Meet
L-R: Kitty Thomas, Anita Mitchell, EvaJo Sheehan, Margaret Waldorf and Helen Murphy - preparing to view a film presentation at HRC meet.
Seventeen members of the Collinsville Home Representative Club gathered Nov. 4, 2008 at the home of Alberta Bonebrake for an evening meeting, co-hosted by Krista Nall. The Arts presentation was in the form of two humorous photographs, depicting "matrons in peril." The pictures were a combination of snapshots taken by Bobby Bonebrake superimposed over painted backgrounds that had been done by Alberta.

Members voted to support Heifer International again this year, and will donate money to the cause in lieu of exchange Christmas gifts. In 2007, donated HRC funds purchased several animals that were given to international families for food and domestic services.

Marsha Nachtigall presented a program on shingles - a skin disease that can lie dormant for several years after chicken pox has been contracted. The film presentation explained the symptoms and treatments.

Additional members in attendance included Margaret Waldorf, Helen Murphy, Susan Pratt, Kitty Thomas, EvaJo Sheehan, Anita Mitchell, Jill Oliver, Rusti Howard, Jeanie Barnes, Linda Pfeffer, Carolyn Brinkley, Joyce Baker, and Bobbie Loveless.
