Collinsville Community Development Club

MERIDIAN —     Want more action and exciting things to do? Then go to the Meridian Activity Center.

    MAC Director Barbara Wells was guest speaker at the August meeting of the Collinsville Community Development Club. Wells described the exciting activities offered at the center, including: exercise, quilting, smocking, line dancing, computers, floral design, cake decorating, crochet, painting, knitting, pottery, stained glass, and pine needle basket weaving.

    Wells, who has served as MAC director for 10 years, said she believes in keeping participants alive by keeping them active physically and mentally. She added that the center – which is located at 3300 32nd Ave. – is not only for senior citizens, but also all age groups..

    Club president Faye Houston called the  Aug. 20, 2012.  meeting to order. A.J. Wedgeworth led the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.

    Dr. David Sellers presented the devotion. Because football season is in the air, Sellers spoke of the importance of having a good coach. He said all good teams have an outstanding coach who molds the players on the team and helps them to develop a good attitude. The coach gets the team ready to win. The team must listen to the coach.

    Sellers said God spoke to Joshua and told him to lead the children of Israel to the Promised Land.

    "We have a coach – Jesus Christ," he said.

    Sellers added that in order to win, you must listen to God and let God be your coach.

    Yard of the Month honorees were: Dan and Eve Houston, first place; Gloria Jean Miller, second place; Dewayne and Imogene Joyner, third place.

    Magazines were brought to the club to distribute to nursing homes and doctor’s clinics.

    The meeting adjourned and club members and guests engaged in a time of refreshments and fellowship. The serving committee included Glenda Rowell, Beverly Scales, Maureen Sellers and Ellen Walker.

    The Collinsville Club will entertain sponsors and guests from other clubs on Sept. 17.
