    They had a great meal and the business taken care of by Peggy Meeks. They also heard other announcements concerning the group.

    The main speaker for Monday’s meeting was Gascon resident, Editha Bartley, who kept the Mountain Mamas spell-bound as she told the story of her life and her life experiences. She is not really a stranger to those who have read her column in the Optic every Friday, normally just below this column.
