Williamsburg CEOS Meet To Share And Learn

The first question people typically ask is, “ Why are covered bridges covered?”

A popular belief is that cows and other livestock were scared by the sight of rushing water below, which made them hesitant to cross the bridge.

Covered bridges were also often referred to as “kissing bridges” (quoted from the Williamsburg CEOS lesson). You want to know why? Then you need to get the lesson, West Virginia Covered Bridges, created by WVU Extension staff by contacting a local WVU County Extension Office.

Barbara Deeds, club member, presented the program at the July 13 CEOS meeting held at the Williamsburg Historical Foundation Museum.

Those participating included Loretta Shirley, Laura Rose, Blanche Knicely, Cassandria Perkins, Laura Ann Tiller, and Burl and Patty Post.

Club members keep track monthly of number of books read (for the Purposeful Reading Committee), Health Motivator Hours, and Volunteer Hours.

The club was brought up to date on community events and county CEOS events coming up this summer.

The next club meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 10, at noon at the Williamsburg Museum.

Although the club will be discussing reorganization for the upcoming year, anyone is still welcome to come to learn about just what the Community Educational Outreach Service (CEOS) is about.
