Wherever you go, everyone wants to send a postcard home. What do friends send home when they visit Huntley? This question bothered Al ii Joyce Allen. Why isn't there a postcard of Huntley? The next question was, how does a town postcard get made? The Aliens found this was a hard question to answer. They had to do a lot of phone calling and researching to come up with an answer. They came up with the name of Dwayne Studio in Woodstock. The site, Huntiey Square, was photographed in the spring. The finished postcards are finally available at the Huntley Supermarket. The first cards were purchased by Walter and Grace Mursewick. Coral Homemakers Meet' The Coral Unit of Homemakers Extension Association met on Thursday, Sept. 7th, at the home of Sylvia Glenn in Marengo for their first unit meeting of the new year, 1989-1990. The Hrst meeting of the new year always seems to be such a hectic one - with "picking up" after the summer months and "setting up" a new schedule for the year to come. So many topics were discussed at the meeting. The June picnic at Deicke Park in Huntley; the H.E.A Booth at the McHenry County Fair in August; the tour of the Sherman Center for Women's Health coming up soon in October; and the "International Day" pot-luck luncheon/meeting coming up the end of October were some of the few items that were touched upon that day. The lesson was given by Lynn Hall directly after the unit meeting. The title of the lesson was "Substance Abuse in McHenry County". Quite a bit of information was given to the unit members at this time and we all came away from the meeting a bit more aware of the scope of substance abuse in our County. The Coral Unit will be meeting again on Wednesday, October 4th, at 4 P.M. at Joyce Liput's home in Huntley. If you would like to attend a meeting or perhaps obtain some information about H.E.A., please don't hestitate to call Beverly King at 815-568-8665 or Barb Schmitdt at 815-923-4482.
