Musical Club ‘visits’ Peru
Cecelia Moczygemba and Peggy Tipton present Ben Reed, FISD social worker, with a donation from the Musical Club.
The monthly meeting of the Floresville Musical Club was held on Jan. 8 in the First Lutheran Church in Floresville.
President Peggy Tipton called the meeting to order and welcomed everyone present. Birthdays and anniversaries were acknowledged, and then Glynda Merritt introduced her hostesses for the month: Lydia Martinez, Bonna Reed, Liz Greenfield, Beth Price, Lillie Ray, Carleen FitzSimon, Priscilla Kincaid, Sandra Tackitt, Rose Lee Risley, Denise Wyant, and Judy Whitley. Glynda gave these ladies a special thanks since she has had some health problems, and they have helped her tremendously.
We were reminded that next month we should submit names for our Peanut Festival representative for this year. The girl must be a junior in a Floresville school or be home-schooled. Also we need to be considering our scholarship recipient. Amy Carter reported that seniors have been notified that the deadline for turning in their application and essay is Thursday, Feb. 7. If any member has daughters or granddaughters that fit these qualifications, they were urged to submit their names for either honor. The selection of both students will be announced at the April meeting.
Carol Richardson gave the treasurer’s report and Jim Helmke was thanked for operating the sound system.
Lydia Martinez, our program chairman, than presented our entertainment. A clarinet selection was played by Alex Vipond. Alex is a sixth- grader in the Floresville schools. Tambria Read than spoke to us about the art program at Floresville High School and presented some of the artwork that has been done by the art students. We were all amazed at the vast curriculum that was available to the students.
Ginny Byrd delighted us with a travelogue of her recent trip to Peru. Accompanying Ginny on the trip were her husband and Shelly Ross and her husband. It was very interesting to hear about some of the customs, foods, and beliefs of these people.
Before closing the meeting, we were reminded about the Relay For Life kick-off party that will be held in Stockdale, Senior Day at the Capitol, Meet the Artist Reception, the Art & Wine Festival, and the Floresville Opry. There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned with a prayer led by Betsy Leifeste.
The hostesses then served delicious refreshments of hot tea, baked potato soup, crackers, and cookies. This was especially welcome on a wet, cold day.
