Joyce Gobl and Jackie Warren were hostesses for the Nov. 26 meeting of the Fort Scott chapter of the Daughters of the Nile at Presbyterian Village.
Mary Lou Hardy was welcomed back as a member. Jackie Warren gave devotions and reports were heard of the Supreme Queen's visit, Sewing Day and the Temple report.
It was announced that Queen Lindsay Derringer will install new officers at the April 29 meeting. The date has been changed to allow the club to host the queen, her court and guests from other clubs at a dinner, auction and a tour of the Masonic Temple.
Twenty-two boxes of gift items were distributed to the Shriners Hospital in Shreveport, La. The Fort Scott chapter, along with the Fort Scott Shrine Club, provided $600 worth of these, largely in gift cards.
Plans for the annual Christmas party were discussed. It will be a catered meal for members and their guests Dec. 11 in Zimmerman Hall of the Presbyterian Church. Following the meal and entertainment, a $5 gift exchange will be held. Clara Schwartz volunteered to make gift bags for the male guests.
Hostesses Joyce Gobl and Jackie Warren provided refreshments. Members were asked to bring their favorite recipe and asked to describe it. Each told a favorite holiday memory. Joyce Gobl displayed a collection of Hallmark Rocking Horse Christmas ornaments, the tiniest being only two inches tall.
Members have been invited to join the Fort Scott Shrine Club for the January meeting.
