Cricket machine demonstrated at Beta meeting

Sorosis Beta met at 7 p.m. Feb. 16 at the home of Katherine Ragland with 13 members and one guest present.

To open the meeting, President Diane Glaser lead the group in the flag salute. She then read a poem entitled “Where There is Love,” by Helen Steiner Rice. Vice president Sonja Koslowsky introduced the program for the evening.

Brenda Charles and her daughter Emma brought her Amazing Cricket machine to the meeting and demonstrated a number of things it can do.

The Amazing Cricket machine is an electric machine capable of cutting all types of paper into different shapes, letters, and designs using cartridges. It can design a number of different craft projects, ranging from greeting cards and posters to glass etchings and wall designs. Charles presented a prepared project that allowed club members to make spring cards for Westview Manor residents.

After the presentation, angel food cake topped with yogurt and fresh fruit was served by hostess Katherine Ragland and co-hostess Virginia Skinner.

Ragland gave a devotional entitled “What Love Feels,” followed with the reading of 1 Corinthians 13.

The tree for the community improvement project will be planted in the city park this spring. Several announcements of upcoming community events were made. Glaser read a daily prayer and closed the meeting with the reading of the club collect.

The next meeting will be March 15 at Faye Stucky’s home. Members will have nomination of officers.
