"Many Pleasant Memories"
In the 1960s, my mother and I attended the crafts class at Wesley House.
The instructor was a Miss Davis. We made many articles, including several
serving trays that I still have and use. The ladies who attended the class
were always helpful and taught us many things. They showed me how to do
Swedish embroidery, and I still use the towels that I made.
For 5¢ you could drink all the coffee that you wanted. We brought
sandwiches from home for our lunch. Near holidays we had pot-luck lunches
and were joined by the painting class. We always had a nice variety of food.
One time, we went to a camp for an outing and Miss Davis drove us there.
June Fisher took over as Director when Miss Davis retired.
I have many pleasant memories of going to the crafts class at Wesley
