3 M's club meets for 20 years

All eight members of 3 M's (Monday Merry Mothers) Home Extension Club, along with five guests, celebrated the club's 20th anniversary during a dinner on Nov. 16 at the Black Knight in Wayne.

Members present were President Delores Utecht, Vice President Leola Larsen, Secretary Lanora Sorensen, Treasurer Roberta Carman, Jociell Bull, Roberta Welte, Marj Porter and Verdina Johs.

As a community project, members brought items for the Wayne Food Pantry.

Verdina Johs organized and presented a half-hour video of 3 M's Club, including a poster of snapshots and ribbons received for the club's theme booths at the Wayne County Fair, a list of previous members, the original 3 M's charter, the recent Waste Buster award for Lee Larsen's environmental recycling lessons and members' efforts in recycling during 1992, a certificate for attendance at all five leader training sessions in 1992, the book "Shiloh" which was presented by 3 M's to Wayne Public Library in observance of National Children's Book Week and other 3 M's memorabilia.

The 3 M's Club was organized by Marj Porter on Oct. 11, 1971 in the home of Johs. Both women are still active in the club.
