Musical Club meets
The Floresville Musical Club met for its monthly meeting May 8, with a tour of homes.
President Sarah Gella opened the meeting and asked members to introduce their guests. Gella then had the hostesses introduced: Ruby Manen, Alene Quinney, Joyce Gorden, Sandra Detamore, Mary Jo Karam, Carolyn Andrews, Betty Dismuke, Diane Savage, Linda Rickstrew, JoNelle Zager, and Dorothy Perez. The Musical Club welcomed two new members.
Gella turned the meeting over to Judy Whitley, scholarship chairman, who introduced the scholarship winner, Elizabeth Garza, who then read her essay.
Glynda Merritt, Musical Club representative to the Peanut Festival board, introduced Lindsey Wilson, our representative for the coming year. Both young ladies received a bouquet of flowers from Gella as a thank-you.
Merritt then spoke about the Peanut Festival fundraiser for the coming year. The Musical Club voted to give a $25 gift certificate toward the prizes collected for the golf tournament.
New officers were introduced: President Peggy Tipton, First Vice President Lydia Martinez, Second Vice President Sandy Vogel, Treasurer Carol Richardson, and Historian Olga Alvarez. Reporter for the Musical Club will be Cecilia Moczygemba.
Congratulations to each of the new officers. Gella then thanked her outgoing officers with a surprise gift.
The Musical Club always tours two homes for the May meeting, but this year they toured three homes and each home was beautiful.
As the ladies entered the last home to tour, they were welcomed by Sandy Detamore playing her clarinet. After the business meeting, she continued to entertain.
At the last home, the ladies had refreshments consisting of fruit cups with two finger sandwiches, peach tea or water, small pastel-colored boxes filled with mixed nuts, and cupcakes frosted with pastel colors. Pastel colors seemed to be the theme for the day.
