MAYFIELD - Members of the Bannertown 50 Plus Club met Nov. 28 and had a social hour. Before lunch, Pat Keane led devotions. His reading was titled "Faithfulness in Using the World's Goods" and was followed by the Lord's Prayer.
After lunch, Mike O'Brien spoke to us of the changes in Part A and Part B in Medicare. He stressed the importance of choosing a plan that best fits an individual's needs. There have been many changes in drug coverage and there will be more in 2013. He will update the group in the spring.
President Carl Edwards opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance. In the absence of the vice president, Lorrie Valk called the roll. There were 20 members present.
Nan Fagan will be taking over for the sunshine chairman.
Edwards read a thank you from the Mayfield Presbyterian Church for the club's contribution to the food pantry of $50 towards the Thanksgiving needs. It was discussed and noted to send $50 for Christmas. It was suggested and noted to bring cereal for the pantry instead of a grab bag.
Activities Committee Chairman, Sue Wemple, reminded that a cookie swap will take place at the next meeting on Dec. 12.
Pictures with Santa will be taken today in front of Dave's Photo Shop in the Johnstown Mall from 1 to 3 p.m. We hope all of the former customers will find Santa Claus there. There will not be a food sale.
