The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met Jan. 14 in the home of Pat Rutland at 4:30 p.m. Members were served refreshments by Ms. Rutland as they arrived for the regular monthly meeting.

President Bernice Person called the meeting to order. Secretary Susan Cotter read the minutes of the November 2012 meeting, gave the treasurer’s report, and conducted the roll call.

Committee reports were given as follows: Christmas Project Chairman Cathy Hilton reported taking socks, lotion, and talcum powder for the residents of the Stockdale Nursing Center at Christmas and also provided cookies for their Christmas program. Nursing Home Bingo Chairman Billie Jo Wolff reported the club will be responsible for refreshments for the Nursing Home Bingo games on April 30. Card Chairman Helen Deason reported sending 45 cards in December.

Due to the resignation of Sandy Lynn from the Scholarship Committee, President Person appointed Pat Rutland and Charlin Akin to serve with Gina Deason on the committee.

Gina Deason, January Nursing Home Visitor, provided chips for the residents at the Nursing Center. The Social Committee chairman reported 23 members and four guests attended the club’s Christmas Outing in December at the Grist Mill in Gruene.

The February hostess will be Sharon West with Sue McLelland to be in charge of the program. The February Nursing Home Visitor will be Frances Hastings.

Program Leader Billie Jo Wolff presented an entertaining program, “Bringing in the New Year.” The coming of a New Year is often accompanied by a great deal of custom and superstition. Different cultures celebrate the ending of one year and the beginning of a new one in different celebrations and traditions.

In Denmark, some Danes celebrate New Year’s by leaping off chairs at midnight, literally “jumping into the New Year,” and by smashing plates against their friends’ and neighbors’ front doors at the stroke of midnight to symbolize good luck. The family with the most broken china piled at their front door can boast having the most friends.

In the Philippines, circles are invoked in clothes and food during New Year’s celebrations. Circles are meant to represent the roundness of coins, wealth, and prosperity. People wear clothing with circular patterns and polka dots at the stroke of midnight to bring affluence into their lives in the year to come.

According to custom in Ireland, an unmarried woman puts a bit of mistletoe under her pillow before going to bed on New Year’s Eve. This was said to bring true love and marriage in the new year and helps to get rid of bad luck.

In Colombia, Mexico, and other Latin American countries, many believe that if they carry a suitcase around the block at the stroke of midnight, they will travel and have adventures during the next year. The suitcases do not need to be packed! So, no matter how you “ring it in,” Happy New Year!

In attendance for the meeting were Charlin Akin, Edith Akin, Susan Cotter, Kay Deagen, Gina Deason, Helen Deason, Cathy Hilton, Mildred Kallies, Bernice Person, Molly Rowell, Pat Rutland, Sharon West, Barbara Wiatrek, Billie Jo Wolff, and Teri Wolff.
