The Sugar Grove Ladies Farm Bureau Club held their April meeting at the home of Betty E. Snook. President Barbara Gannon presided as secretary Beverly Curtis read the minutes and Colette Hill gave a treasurer’s report. Six members and three guests answered roll call with a current event. A lively discussion ensued as the ladies talked about the North Korean missile crisis, whether teenagers should receive a mandatory life sentence for murder and the new tax assessment on property. Colette Hill told of plans to have a large barn added to the Sugar Grove Gathering Place to accommodate large weddings, reunions, and other events. Members present were Alice Beatty, Adra Clymer, Barbara Gannon, Beverly Curtis, Colette Hill and Betty Snook. Three guests, Norma Allspach, Mary Anne Iske and Lelah Main also attended.

Following the meeting, Snook presented a program on pattern glass and told how she began her collection. After purchasing several butter dishes, butter pats, goblets, toothpick holders and relish dishes, Snook decided her goal of collecting one of each pattern was impossible. As the ladies ate a dessert luncheon, she showed many samples of glassware. Snook is dividing her collection among her six children and 26 grandchildren. She said the younger generation is more interested in space items, electronic toys and bobble heads.
