Members of the FCSLA gathered at the Clutier Social Center on Sunday, July 19 at noon for a basket dinner. 71 members enjoyed a delicious potluck. The lodge provided broasted chicken, ice tea, and lemonade. Special guests were Rosemary Mlinarich, FCSLA National Vice-President from Crete, IL and Irene Drotleff, FCSLA National Secretary, from Cleveland, OH. Each spoke briefly on the organization. President Gladys Nekola requested a vote be taken to continue sitting in a group at a members' funeral. The vote passed to continue the practice. Also present was Chase Woods, son of Steve and Tina Woods of Des Moines, and grandson of Mary Ann Kucera. Chase was a recipient of a FCSLA national $750 parochial school tuition scholarship. Chase attends St. Joseph's School in Des Moines and will be in the first grade. The afternoon was spent playing Bingo with winners going home with muskmelons and watermelons. Winners of the $15 gas certificates were Rose Kvidera, Lillian Dostal, Wilfred Yuska, and Jill Svoboda. The door prizes were won by Josh Linhart and Freddie Kubik.
