The Ostella FCE will hold the next county-wide meeting, Wednesday, April 12, 2017. “Friends and Sharing” will be the meeting’s topic.

The club meetings in Marshall County are open to everyone. The Ostella FCE meets in Cornersville, the second Wednesday of the month at 11:30 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church. In Lewisburg, meetings are held the third Thursday of the month at 1 p.m. at the Hardison Annex.

The FCE consists of members who provide various volunteer services throughout the county. Several members plan to read to children on March 2, 2017, which is “Read Across America Day.” At the “Sweet Treats Bake Off” meeting, members brought in paper products to be donated to the Child Development Center that is located at 1600 Jason Maxwell Blvd. These members strive to help those in need and they make life-long friends while doing good for others.
