Priscilla Book Club
The Priscilla Book Club met March 13 at the Pine Street home of Kay Marks. After dessert, Kay Barefoot, president, opened the meeting with thoughts on “March Madness” basketball and exhibition baseball games. She recounted memorable North Carolinians, Tony Cloninger and Jimmy Hall, who set records in the sport of baseball.
During the new-business portion of the meeting, a monetary donation to the Lincoln County Public Library was discussed.
Program leader Libby Mize introduced a guest presenter, Allyson Levine. Miss Levine read poems and short stories she has written as entries for the Flo Robinson Literary Competition. “The Philosopher Wore Sneakers” and “I Was Dancing” were poems shared with the group, and “Aquarium Blues” and “Late for Church” were the short story entries Miss Levine read to club members. Miss Levine writes human-interest stories for the local publication “Lincoln County View” and she has a new novel underway.
President Barefoot closed the meeting, continuing the baseball theme by reading the well-known poem “Casey at the Bat.”
The April meeting’s host is Hazel Andrews, with Peggy Lafferty as the program leader.
