Musical Club Christmas meeting
Musical Club President Peggy Tipton welcomes new member Barbara Vipond.
The monthly meeting of the Floresville Musical Club was held on Dec. 11 in the First Lutheran Church in Floresville.
Peggy Tipton, the president, called the meeting to order and introduced the guests. Birthdays and anniversaries for the month were acknowledged, and then Peggy expressed our thanks to Patty Moczygemba for running the sound system each month. Carole Richardson then presented the treasurer’s report. A benevolence offering was collected, as is our custom at Christmas time.
It was announced that two of our members, Edna Brownlow and Bea Ploch, had been in an automobile accident. Fortunately they suffered only minor injuries. We were urged to notify Betty Dismuke, our courtesy committee chairman, whenever we are aware of any happenings concerning our members so that she can send cards.
Lydia Martinez introduced our entertainment, which followed our theme, Christmas Cheer. Shayla Satterfield, a student at La Vernia High School, played a Christmas medley on the flute. She then delighted us by singing and playing the guitar. Some of the songs were her own composition. She was followed by Bob and Janice Green, who sang some very original Christmas songs, one being “I Go Nuts at Christmas,” which we could all relate to.
There being no further business, LaJuana Newnam-Leus led in a closing prayer. We were then treated to a beautiful setting of “Christmas Cheer.” The main table was adorned with a large Christmas centerpiece on a red tablecloth. Individual tables also followed the Christmas theme with candles and floral arrangements. Delicious refreshments of finger sandwiches, sausage balls, dip, crackers, key lime pie, and spiced tea were served by the hostesses: Louise Stadler, Betty Stokes, Betsy Leifeste, Peggy Tipton, Mary Jordan, Patsy Cotton, Sandy Vogel, Margie Davis, Sue Witten, Polly Bayer, Gertrude Eckel, and Chrystal Eckel.
