The Carlisle Progressive Club closed the year with a tour of the Scott Plantation Settlement on May 8.

Members took a look back in time as the tour guide told the history behind the 15 original Scott buildings where work was performed, children were educated, and life unfolded. Many club members reminisced their own experiences as children growing up in the farming areas nearby.

After the tour, the group moved to Charlotte’s for lunch and a short open-air business meeting. During the meeting, library book donations for May were assigned to Nancy Chudy and Pat Aycock, and the club decided to donate to the library summer program.

A planning meeting for next year was scheduled for May 29. Lois Ann Bryant’s name was drawn for the lavender wand and sachet door prize. Hostesses for the meeting were Ann Lenderman and Margaret Ann Zimmerman.
