The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met April 9 at 4:30 p.m. in the home of the hostess, Susan Cotter, for the regular business meeting.

President Sue McLelland called the meeting to order. Secretary Susan Cotter read the minutes of the March meeting and conducted the roll call.

Committee reports were given. The Nursing Home Bingo Committee will provide refreshments on Tuesday, May 29. The Card Committee sent out 12 cards for March; and the Social Committee has an outing planned for Tuesday, July 10, at the Olive Orchard in Elmendorf.

Barbara Wiatrek announced the Community Project Committee will be placing Christmas lights at the “Watermelons” entrance to Main Street of the city of Stockdale.

Hostess for the May meeting will be Bernice Person with Molly Rowell to serve as Program Leader. Helen Deason will serve as the May Nursing Home Visitor.

Program Leader Frances Hastings introduced her husband, James Hart Hastings, as the speaker for the afternoon. Their lives have changed tremendously due to illnesses each is experiencing. James has become a “night owl” and wants to talk in the wee hours of the morning, and the talks are always about the Hastings family history. The historical facts he shared with the Blue Bonnet Club today were concerning his grandfather, Willie Hart Hastings, well-known as a “storyteller” and a prankster. He was a successful rancher, and raised the first Hereford cattle in Wilson County. His herd was originated with a Hereford bull brought over from England by Dr. Elder of Nixon and purchased by Hastings. An interesting item was regarding Hastings’ name, Willie Hart Hastings, except the Hart was not written, but drawn as a heart. When the typewriter came into service, Hastings was required to spell out Hart, as there was no heart symbol on the typewriter keyboard. Many more anecdotes were shared, but the most inspiring part of James’ talk was regarding memories cherished and the love of family.

Attending the meeting were members Charlin Akin, Edith Akin, Linda Carden, Susan Cotter, Kay Deagen, Helen Deason, Frances Hastings, Mildred Kallies, Sue McLelland, Bernice Person, Molly Rowell, Barbara Wiatrek, Billie Jo Wolff, and Teri Wolff; and guests James H. Hastings and Randy Cotter.
