It was an uplifting night when10 Town and Country CFELmembers and their guest gath-ered in the Center Building atHomestead Heights for their reg-ular March meeting. As hostess, Teddi Carlsonarranged for Brandi Baysinger,coordinator for Bison EconomicDevelopment, to speak aboutwhat that group has in mind forthe future development of oursmall town. Already, the relatively newly-formed group has developed aweb site and is posting daily com-munity happenings there and onFacebook. They are responsiblefor the business signs on High-way 20 and they’ve painted onehouse through the Paint SouthDakota program. A big goal right now would beto build a Daycare facility beforethe start of another school year,possibly purchasing a Governor’shouse. First, however, they wouldneed a lot to put it on, accordingto Baysinger, and preferably itwould be in the vicinity of BisonSchool. The group’s long wish listalso includes planning summeractivities for the town’s youth,building garages that could berented by residents at HomesteadHeights and pouring sidewalksalong Coleman Avenue. They rec-ognize a need for more housing inBison new business, such as acarwash, a Laundromat and alumberyard. They’ve talked aboutforming a foundation and a schol-arship fund.Carlson shared an adult Dr.Seuss book, “You’re Only OldOnce,” written when the authorwas 82 years old and followinghis recent hospitalization. Thebook is a comical view of the“Golden Years” and the thingsthat we all face as we grow olderand need medical attention.There were smiles all around,too, as members answered theevening’s roll call by compliment-ing the person to their right!The first full week in May isrecognized statewide as CFEL(Community Family and Exten-sion Leaders) week. Each year,Town and Country does some ac-tivity to draw attention to theirgroup and the club’s ideals. After a short brainstormingsession, it was decided that BethHulm would work with Baysingerto spotlight a CFEL activity everyday that week on the EconomicDevelopment website and on itsFacebook page. Also early in May is the annualSpring Council and Area I meet-ing, which will be attended by thepresiding state president and thenew president elect. The meet-ings will take place in the morn-ing, beginning with rolls andcoffee, at The Feed Lot and end-ing with a catered luncheon.Town and Country also heldtheir February meeting at theCenter Building at HomesteadHeights when Sara Weishaarhosted.That night it was decided tocontinue with the Secret Friendsprogram and, those who wished,selected new “friends” to showerwith gifts and cards throughoutthe next year. Also at that meeting, checkswere written to Bison Public Li-brary for their summer readingprogram in memory of club mem-ber Vi Leonard, who passed awayrecently, and to the Bison PostProm committee.Linda Howey will host the nextmeeting in the Grand Electric So-cial Room on Thursday, April 24.Guests are encouraged to attendand may do so by phoning BethHulm, 244-5231, or any otherTown and Country member. Newmembers are always welcome!
