Polished Edge: Musical Club holds February meeting
Christian and Jacob Hill provide entertainment during the Floresville Musical Club’s February meeting.
The Floresville Musical Club held its monthly meeting on Feb. 12 in the First Lutheran Church in Floresville.
President Peggy Tipton called the meeting to order. Members who had a birthday or anniversary were recognized and guests were introduced, with 64 ladies in attendance. The hostesses present for this month were Rose Hoelscher, Pat Brown, Norma Drozd, Nancy Pritchard, and Mary Jane Moczygemba.
Sarah Gella reported that members had not submitted any names of daughters, granddaughters, or other relatives to be our Peanut Festival representative. She then passed around a sheet so that we might submit names of any eligible girl that those present would like to be our representative.
It was reported that Amy Carter had received 12 entries for the scholarship award, and the winner will be announced in April. Carol Richardson then gave the treasurer’s report. Lydia Martinez then introduced our performers. We were entertained by two families, the Hills (Christian and Jacob) and the Halls (Jason, April, and family). Both gave outstanding performances and were enjoyed by all.
Sandy Migl and Lydia Martinez announced that the Friends of the Wilson County Library is hosting a meet the author and book-signing event on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 1-3 p.m. The author is Stephen Harrigan and the book is The Gates of the Alamo. The book was available for sale as well as tickets to the event. Sandy also informed us that she is looking for any information on the descendants of the 300 families that Stephen F. Austin brought to Texas.
Monica Flores reminded us of the Wine and Art Festival that will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23. This function is sponsored by Sacred Heart Catholic School.
Betty Dismuke announced that she had sent a card to Novelle Mills, who was having surgery that day. She again urged that we keep her informed when we have a sick member, etc.
There being no further business, the meeting was closed with a prayer led by Betsy Leifeste. We then adjourned to our reception where the hostesses served delicious refreshments.
