Helen Heater reminded members of the setup scheduled for the flower shop and three-day school to be held at Chapel Hill United Methodist Church.

The meeting program was about the work of the West Virginia Raptor Rehabilitation Center. Raptors are a group of birds including hawks, owls and eagles, among others.

The center's mission is to rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned raptors, and to inspire environmental understanding through education for the benefit of all living things.

Annie, a 27-year-old red-tailed hawk, was introduced to the club by Michael Book. Neo, a bird blind in the left eye, was presented by Megan Kruger.

Twenty-five members and guests enjoyed refreshments served by Helen Heater and Libby Randall during the meeting.
