At the last meeting of the McLouth Friendship Club, it was decided that rather than meeting every month, they will meet four times during the year. Mark your calendars with these dates: Jan. 21: soup luncheon; April 15: hosting the National Honor Society students; Nov. 18: Thanksgiving dinner.
McLouth Friendship Club’s covered dish luncheon will be at 11:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 21, at the community center. Several have signed up to bring soup. Suggested additions are crackers, cheese, relish plates and desserts. All adults over 50 are welcome. Please bring your table service.
