The Carlisle Progressive Club met Feb. 13 in the home of Carolyn Flynn. Pat Aycock served as co-hostess.

During the business meeting, Ann Davis read a letter from the Dictionary Project thanking the club for their continued efforts to place dictionaries in the hands of all third graders. Sue Young reported that the club donated 36 books to the local library in 2012. Lucy Nannie and Betty Schafer gave books in January, and Shirley Stanley and Mary Stuart will donate in February.

Emphasis for the meeting was public issues, and Flynn introduced guest speaker, Carlisle mayor Ray Glover.

Glover gave the club a glimpse of the past six years, present projects, and future possibilities for Carlisle. He discussed some projects that have been completed and the part grants played in those projects. His closing comments stressed the importance of economic development to our city’s future, and thanked everyone for giving back to our town.

The club finished the meeting by collecting valentines brought by members, and sharing cheesecake, coffee, and the club prayer.

The valentines were delivered to the residents of Chambers Nursing and Rehab Center. The next club meeting will be March 13 at 1:30 p.m. in the home of Sue Young.
