The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met Oct. 8 in the home of Edith Akin. Members were greeted at the door by Mrs. Akin and were served refreshments by Judy Childress as they arrived for the regular monthly business meeting.

President Sue McLelland called the meeting to order and Secretary Susan Cotter read the minutes of the September meeting, gave the Treasurer’s report, and conducted the Roll Call.

Barbara Wiatrek, Community Project chairman, reported the lights have been purchased for the “Welcome to Stockdale” entrance at U.S. 87 and Main Street. The Stockdale Chamber of Commerce will put the lights up for the upcoming holiday season. Card Chairman Helen Deason sent 27 cards during September. The Yearbook Committee, Cathy Hilton, Vanessa Bosanko, Susan Cotter, and Sue McLelland, distributed the yearbooks for 2012-13. Again, the comments were “This is the best one ever!” The new committee chairmen, committee members, hostesses, program leaders, and nursing home visitors were listed for the new club year. Pictures of various socials and activities were placed throughout the yearbook.

The November hostess will be Barbara Wiatrek with Teri Wolff to be in charge of the program. The November Nursing Home Visitor will be Susan Cotter.

The Blue Bonnet Club elected to give a monetary donation to the Lester Jackson Fund-raiser to be held Sunday, Oct. 21, at the Stockdale Community Building.

Barbara Wiatrek, Program Leader, presented a humorous and informative program regarding the past 89 years of the Blue Bonnet Club. The club was organized Oct. 17, 1923, in the home of Mrs. Mattie Person with the purpose of promoting sociability and civic interest among the younger married couples of Stockdale. In 1929, the club began the “42” domino parties at night and the husbands became an integral part of the club on these “once-a-month” social get-togethers. In 1996, this practice was suspended due to the younger members coming into the club not playing “42” and their time was taken up with so many school functions and sporting activities. The traditions of the old and changes of the new have blended together to make the Blue Bonnet Club what it is today -- a club of fun-loving friends and community-minded members.

In closing, Ms. Wiatrek presented a gift to Mrs. Edith Akin in appreciation for her 55 years of faithfulness to the Blue Bonnet Club. Ms. Edith became a member on Aug. 8, 1957. The program was closed with all singing “Happy Birthday” to the Blue Bonnet Club in honor of its 89 consecutive years of being an active civic organization. Ms. Edith blew out the candles of the birthday cake and it was cut and more refreshments were enjoyed.

In attendance for the meeting were Charlin Akin, Edith Akin, Vanessa Bosanko, Linda Carden, Judy Childress, Susan Cotter, Kay Deagen, Gina Deason, Helen Deason, Mary Denson, Frances Hastings, Mildred Kallies, Sandy Lynn, Sue McLelland, Bernice Person, Molly Rowell, Sharon West, Barbara Wiatrek, and Billie Jo Wolff.
