The January GFWC QuiVive Club meeting was held on Thursday, January 4, 2018 at the home of Pat Stevermer. Dorothy Nazarenus was the Co-hostess.
Speaker, Dave Haala talked about Haala Industries, the business he started in 1974 on the corner of Highways 4 and 14. The business has since moved south on State Highway 4, where there are 35 employees, some of whom have been with the company for many years. Production has changed from welding for farm repair to sheet metal work to manufacturing wire cages that go into pipes and culverts for road-building. They ship to many states and recycle all materials that can’t be used. Club members found Haala’s talk extremely interesting and enlightening.
A business meeting was held consisting of the Secretary’s Report, Treasure’s Report, Communications and various other reports. Qui Vive Club members turned in their voluteer hours for 2017.
Unfinished business was discussed and announcements were given.
For roll call, each member said whether they made New Year’s resolutions.
The next meeting is at 7 p.m., February 1, 2018 at Lillian Stimpert’s home, with Peggy Tauer the co-hostess. Kevin Helget and Tom Deibele of Del Monte will speak about the process of producing canned vegetables…from field to table.
