The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met Feb. 13, with Gina Deason serving as hostess for the regular business meeting. Individual boxes of Sweethearts Valentine candy were given to the members as they were served refreshments prior to the meeting.
President Sue McLelland called the meeting to order. Secretary/Treasurer Susan Cotter read the minutes of the January meeting, gave the treasurer’s report, and conducted the roll call.
Committee reports were given. Billie Jo Wolff, nursing home bingo chairman, took refreshments from the club on Jan. 31 to the Stockdale Nursing Center. The club will furnish refreshments again on Tuesday, May 29. Card Chairman Helen Deason sent 19 cards during January. Bernice Person, social chairman, reported the July outing will be to an olive grove in Elmendorf. Kay Deagen, Christmas project chairman, reported taking Christmas cookies and fruit trays to the residents of the Stockdale Nursing Center. Molly Rowell, February nursing home visitor, provided Valentine candy for the bingo games on Valentine’s Day at the nursing home.
Gina Deason announced Clayton Lynn, the son of Michael and Sandy Lynn, and a junior at Stockdale High School, will represent Stockdale High School at the state swim meet to be held at the University of Texas on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24-25, in Austin. Clayton will compete in the 100-meter breaststroke and the 200-meter individual medley.
The Blue Bonnet Club is pleased to welcome Charlin Akin as its newest member.
The Blue Bonnet Club will provide and serve the refreshments for the Watermelon Jubilee Queen’s Coronation Reception in June. Barbara Wiatrek, Billie Jo Wolff, and Bernice Person will act as the committee in charge.
Hostess for the March meeting will be Sue McLelland, with Vanessa Bosanko to serve as program leader. Mary Denson will serve as the March nursing home visitor.
Program Leader Kay Deagen shared a PowerPoint demonstration regarding
“Friendship.” “Good friends are like the stars, you may not see them, but they are always there,”
“Friendship -- What are the benefits?” and “Good friends are people when you do something stupid, they still like you!” were the topics shared by Kay, assisted by Gina Deason, Molly Rowell, and Sandy Lynn.
In conclusion, she stated, “To have a friend, you must be a friend” and “Women are wired to support one another.” Note cards were distributed and the members were asked to write a note to a friend to let them know they are being thought of today.
Attending the meeting were Linda Carden, Susan Cotter, Kay Deagen, Gina Deason, Helen Deason, Mary Denson, Frances Hastings, Ginger Jackson, Mildred Kallies, Sandy Lynn, Sue McLelland, Bernice Person, Molly Rowell, Pat Rutland, Barbara Wiatrek, Billie Jo Wolff, and Teri Wolff.
