Eight Plains Regional Medical Center auxilians, Martha Aldrich, Brand Boney, Gloria Calvillo, Phyllis Davidson, Barbara Hughes, Paula Johnston, Norma Nagel and Fay Smith, attended the district three meeting in Ruidoso, April 21.

The meeting was called to order with the welcome and introductions of Donya Conine, state president, Paula Johnston, past state president, and Leda Evert, president elect.

Workshop speakers gave tips on "Identifying theft and how to prevent it." A mother spoke on her walk through her daughters' anorexia and on the lighter side, how laughter effects your health.

All in attendance enjoyed a hospitable, informative day.

Curry County Extension Club

The Curry County Extension Clubs held their annual International Tasting April 24 at the extension building on the fair grounds. There were 22 ladies in attendance.

Council president Sheryl Abdill welcomed everyone and gave the invocation. The group sampled dishes that are commonly eaten in Iceland that had been prepared by club members.

The Chaparral Club was responsible for the program. Elizabeth Lawrence from Portales visited Iceland a number of times with her daughter. Their heritage is from Iceland and Elizabeth prepared the program, including a power point presentation. Sheryl presented the program in the absence of Elizabeth.

The tables were beautifully decorated with sea animals and farm equipment set up by the Claud Rainy Day Club.
