Thompson gave a “whirlie bird” as a door prize and gave the club a large red cedar bird and squirrel feeder for the entrance of the log cabin where the club meets.

Each member of the club also brought two Valentines to be sent to Veterans at the VA Hospital in Montgomery.

Ernie Scruggs, butterfly chairman, announced the “Butterfly Contest” for grades one through five that will be on March 1.

She said that UAB doctors were very disappointed that the radiation had not killed the tumor, and he will go back in March for another MRI.

The club members will help in baking cakes, baked beans and sell tickets for plate and 32” Emerson T.V. to be given away on March 3.
