Burge Dodson HD Club Now that we are well into the new year, perhaps it is good to look back and see what •we have achieved in the old one, 1963. The women of the Dodson Home Demonstration Club feel that they have accomplished many things. The Dodson Club was the largest in •Collingsworth county in 1963. All of the women feel their responsibility to help make the club 'both educational and enjoyable. This has encouraged several of the young women of the community to join, and (thereby, add new viewpoints. This club has itried to meet THDA's recommendations for the year's work. During the year many projects were carried out. Members passed out litter bags to Help Reefr America Beautiful. ; There were meetings studying about Civil Defense and different types of ibomb shelters. • '•'' . . ;. :V ' ; • • . • Naturally family Uife plays a big part in Home Demonstration work and members are urged to share material and information with non-members and their families. They also encouraged non-members to attend special interest meetings and workshops. As moat of the special interest meetings and workshops were held in the Dodson school lunch room, this led to on© of the community projects which •the club undertook—to show their appreciation to the school for cooperations) the club members put; in an afternoon working together, and made curtains for the eleven windows of the lunchroom. Everyone had a job, from measuring materi- Club Hears Opera Review Mrs. John Harper wais 'hostess to 4)he Wellington Federated Music Club recently at her home north of Wellington. Mrs. Claude Groves was co-hostess. The guest speaker was Miss Virginia Robey, who reviewed the modern opera, "The Ballad of Baby Doe," by LaTour and Moore. The story is based on the life of "Baby Dos" Tabor, wife of one of 'Colorado'® silver kings of the 1880's, and the opera is peopled with figures of state and national repute in that period. It received its premier at Central City, Colo., during the 1956 summer opera season, and has 'been acclaimed both an the United States and in Europe A solo from the opera, Baiby Doe's farewell to her husband was sung by Mrs. Davis Edens Vicki Killian, daughter oi Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Killian and a senior in Wellington high school, was presented as the Junior Musician of the Month During the -business session officers for the coming year were announced, with Mrs, Mack Bush as president;; 'Mrs Hiram Cuddi, vice president Mrs. William Barjenbruch, sec- a-etary-treasurer; and Mrs Lowell Wells, parliamentarian and Mrs. B.

The club also made a financial contribution to the school. Club members have always )een active as leaders of 4-H. They were gratified to see one of their -girls become a Gold Star Award winner. They considered it a privilege to be able to honor her with a wedding shower in the summer of 1963. The club works closely with .he school and for the past two years has served the alumni mnquet. Although this falls in a very busy season for mothers and homemakers, the night be- 'ore Easter, there is 'good cooperation among the members as they organize to plan menus and cook and serve a meal for 150 /people. Of course, any .group that works must also have recrea- non. A favorite of the Dodson women is the summer cook-out with barbecued chickens, hamburgers or hot dogs. These night meetings leave days free 'or canning and freezing of fruits and vegetables in season, and renew their zeal for iving and working. Thus went the year of Home Demonstration work in Dodson, Texas, in 1963. Now the women have already started another year under the leadership of iheir new presidtent, Mrs. Ronnie Ford.
