La Vernia Garden Club news
Guest speaker Rue Powers (third from right) joins the hostesses for the La Vernia Garden Club’s February meeting, (from left) Mary Scull, Cherry Pierdolla, Shirley Grammer, June Buckner, and Joyce Beck. Barbara McGrew was also a hostess.
Rue Powers, a comedian from Fort Worth, entertained the La Vernia Garden Club during its Feb. 7 meeting in the home of Joyce Beck.
Rue assumed a fictitious name, Ida Mae Whitehead, and pretended to be moving to La Vernia to open a boarding house on Chihuahua Street. She was absolutely hilarious and everyone had a great afternoon.
The club voted to award a $500 scholarship to a student in the Culinary Arts Department at La Vernia High School. President Jackie West appointed a committee to select a slate of officers for the 2013-14 club year. The new officers will be voted on at the March meeting, which will be held in the La Margarita Restaurant in San Antonio after a tour of the Spanish Governor’s Palace and the San Fernando Cathedral.
For more information, call Jackie West at 210-649-4004.
