8 MONDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1996 THE r SAUNA JOURNAL ORGANIZATIONS FROM PAGE 7 MID-KAN AREA OF 1-70 COUNCIL OF TELEPHONE PIONEERS: The Mid-Kan Area of the 1-70 Council of Telephone Pioneers of America met Oct. 12 at the Thunderbird Restaurant at Concordia for a buffet luncheon, which opened with grace- by Margaret Balch of Concordia. After lunch, Balch introduced Joann Freeborn, state representative, District 1-7, who talked on Legislative issues, followed by an interesting question session. Drawings for free meals were won by Evelyn Burwell, Abilene, and Vickie Oliver, Salina. After this, Sharon Fee, area manager, regional Pioneers assistant from St. Louis, was presented by Balch. Since there has been so much reorganization in our Pioneer organization, Fee explained she is Pioneer Administrator of Heartland Chapter which is comprised of the whole of Kansas, area codes 816 and 817 of Missouri, Kansas City, Sunflower Chapter and the former Charles S. Gleed groups. She does meeting planning and coordinates with Telephone Pioneers at our national level. She then made a group of presentations including a new type of Pioneer shirt to Margaret Balch, some measuring tapes, to those there retired over 30 years, to Ramona Murk of Concordia for the hours she has given in volunteer work, sewing many Hug-A-Bears (given to police departments for children), sewing masks (making BeebBall blinds for blind baseball players). Fee said that 53 United States maps have been painted by our Pioneers on elementary schools throughout the Heartland Chapter. School children like these to acquaint them with location of states, to find and stand on their own and adjacent states. This map measures 20 x 30 feet. Fee also discussed the "I Like Me" books presented, after being personalized with the students' names. These books tend to help the kindergartners with low self-esteem to have better feelings about themselves. Community service and fellowship was cited as being the big aspirations of Telephone Pioneering. Annual Pioneer Assembly will be May 3, 1997, at Osage Beach in the Ozarks. Joe Ayotte, past president, Salina, presented our council newsletter, offered bingo tickets and door prizes. On the "has been sick" list were Vernon Witwer, Abilene; Alta Worley, Beloit; and Merle Price, Salina. Cards would be welcomed. The birthday song was sung.

Our camping included Wilson Lake and going to see the Garden of Eden and the Grass Roots Art place. It is worth a trip to see it. Four rigs of us went to Minden, Neb., and walked for two days, also stopped at Smith Center at the Excel plant for a very informative tour. Several members have serious illnesses and we are keeping them in our prayers. We had four rigs go to the Coffeyville Samboree; we all enjoyed it. One of our members can't travel with us as he's state electrician so he has to be there early. Members are working on the Hutchinson Samboree. 'Our election of officers were the same as last year — Les Saenger, president; Virgil Bowman, vice president; Lily Saenger, secretary/treasurer; Leroy Rittel, wagonmaster; Clint Krehbiel, chaplain, assisting him — Phyllis Cline and Ruby Vallis. Our camping spots have not been set yet but all will be the third week end of the month. Phyllis Cline and Lois Kepple went to Alaska to work on a church. They had some good stories to tell when they got home. If there is anyone interested in joining a camping group and having a lot of fun, call Les Saenger, 913-825-8104, or Virgil Bowman, 913-823-6991.
