The Modern Homettes CEOS Club conducted the monthly meeting Jan. 3 at the Home of Lucy Mullins, with Dea Harris as co-hostess.
The meeting was called to order by Mullins. The pledge was recited by all. A meditation entitled "Today We Will" was presented by Vice President Sheila Thomason. No minutes were read because of December Christmas activities.
The treasurer's report was given by Mullins. Cindy Phillips made a motion to accept the report, seconded by Ethel Andrews. The motion carried. The treasurer's report was placed on file for audit at a later date.

Based on a lack of interest, members decided not to participate in the Health Motivator Program.
The lesson for the evening was given by Mullins. It was "Connecting with Others Using the Five Love Languages." The five love languages are words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, quality time and physical touch.
Andrews installed the club officers for 2013: Lucy Mullins, president; Sheila Thomason, vice president; Donna Bennett, secretary; and Dea Harris, treasurer.
