The April meeting of the Mid-Morning Belles Homemakers Club was held April 24 at Klotz Flower Design and Garden Shop. A breakfast was provided by Marcena Bockbrader and Ann Puse.
Eight members were present to hear Eugene Klotz explain the steps in making terrariums and fairy gardens. After describing the proper plants to use, as well as discussing containers, soil, and other items that complete a terrarium, he also assembled terrariums for several of the members.
The business meeting was opened by Carolyn Borcherding with an article about springtime called "Overnight Magic."
Roll call was in answer to "Name a flower in the greenhouse."
A short report was given about the Northwest District OHCE meeting held on April 23 and a discussion of the 2014 spring meeting of that group which will be held in Pemberville. Mickey Gerwin announced that the quilt put together by the club has been delivered to the Cocoon Shelter and she shared their thanks and appreciation for the quilt.
A mystery tour is scheduled for May 23, which will include lunch.
The meeting ended with a humorous reading by Borcherding, called "The Peek Company."
Eight club members, along with two guests, enjoyed the annual International Dinner on May 6 at the home of Barb Limes. The theme was Guatemala.
Various members prepared a variety of recipes from Guatemala. The meal menu consisted of: Doblades, spinach and black bean quesadilias, cabbage and radish salads, chili relleno casserole, beans and rice, shredded beef in tomato sauce, chicken and pineapple, mango-avocado salsa, plantains, Tres Leche cake, chocolate eclairs, and chamomille apple tea.
Following the meal and a brief meeting, special guests Nancy Peters and Amy Peters gave a presentation about their trips to Guatemala. They both have done some volunteer work with a mission organization called "Champions in Action". This organization holds soccer camps for children in Guatemala and share the love of Christ with them. Many of these children live on the streets.
In late March the Homemakers visited the Higher Ground Coffee Shop in Pemberville, where they took part in a cooking class. Seven women learned to make two different Italian recipes and enjoyed eating the food afterwards.
