Sorosis Beta learns about depression glass

In the absence of the club president, vice president, and secretary, Sorosis Beta treasurer Lou Ann Gray, found herself in charge of the Feb. 18 meeting.

She opened the meeting with a reading entitled, “The Meaning of True Love.” She also had the club members recite the club collect.

The program was presented by Carolyn Johnson of Walton who, with her husband Evan, has collected depression glass for years.

Johnson presented information on the glass and showed some of the pieces she has in her collection. She passed around a pamphlet with the history, logos, and pattern names of depression glass.

Most of the glass is either green or pink, but Johnson also had some rare pieces in white.

She showed a small portion of her collection. Club members saw a vase, salt and pepper shakers, plates, cups, and glasses. Some club members shared pieces of depression glass that they had collected.

The meeting continued with Marquetta Eilerts reading the December and January minutes, followed by the treasurer’s report, all of which were approved by members.

Arleen Moffett won the door prize. Norma Patton of the community improvement committee reported that 57 valentines were made for Legacy Park residents.

The social committee presented two ideas to members and asked for other ideas to be presented at the March 18 meeting. Members were also reminded to bring “jewelry” in a brown bag to that meeting.

The meeting closed with the members reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and the club pledge. Hostesses Janie Hodges and Katherine Ragland served refreshments of cake and coffee to 10 members.
