Medina Journal-Register — Tuesday Club meets

The Medina Tuesday Club’s last meeting was Tuesday at one of the spacious rooms of the new building of the United Methodist Church on West Center Street Extension. Some members of the Delphic Circle Club in Wilson traveled to Medina to join the meeting.

The program consisted on creating a Kitchen Herb Garden in personal containers.

This was done under the expert direction of club member Margaret Roberts, who provided the plants and ingredients needed.

The herbs used were basil, oregano, parsley and rosemary. Roberts also gave all the necessary tips to be able to grow these herbs in a sunny location in club members’ homes.

After a light refreshment the meeting was adjourned. The next meeting will be on Feb. 13 at the home of Lilia Bunnell.

Historical Show and Tell

The Medina Historical Society will hold its annual “Show and Tell” Meeting at 7 p.m. Jan. 27 at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library. Members and non-members are invited to bring along their treasures from the past to share at this popular program.

There are no rigid criteria. Items pertaining to Medina history are of special interest, but all older items will be welcome. Items shared at the 2013 meeting included matchbooks from local businesses, an ornate pocket watch from Hurd’s Jewelers, a metal pin curler for hair, an ash tray made at Tucker’s, and a rock proof fender protector, to name but a few.

Board President Reinhard Rogowski said there are a few at least a few surprises at this event every year.
