Hobbies highlight Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club meeting
Blue Bonnet Club officers for 2013-14 are (from left) Secretary-Treasurer Mildred Kallies, President Bernice Person, Vice President Billie Jo Wolff, and Reporter Helen Deason.
The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met Sept. 9 at 4:30 p.m. in the home of Vanessa Bosanko. Members were served refreshments as they arrived for the regular business meeting.
Bernice Person, president, called the meeting to order. Vanessa Bosanko, secretary-treasurer, read the minutes of the August meeting, gave the treasurer’s report, and conducted roll call.
Sharon West suggested the club clean out its closet at the Community Building and discard any items no longer being used. This will allow the Float Committee to have all the float materials in one place. The committee met Sept. 13.
Barbara Wiatrek, community project chairman, proposed that the club purchase two 8-foot tables for use in the Stockdale Community Building. The proposal was accepted as the Community Project for the 2013-14 year project.
The nominating committee recommended a slate of officers to serve in 2013-14. The officers elected were: President Bernice Person, Vice President Billie Jo Wolff, Secretary-Treasurer Mildred Kallies, and Reporter Helen Deason. These officers will begin their service at the November meeting.
Reports were given from the bingo, card, community project, nominating, and yearbook committee heads.
The October hostess will be Ginger Jackson, with Linda Carden to be in charge of the program. The October nursing home visitor will be Edith Akin.
Judy Childress, program leader, presented a most entertaining program, “What Do You Do For A Hobby?” Describing hobby as an activity pursued for pleasure, not as an occupation, the members were asked to share the hobby they pursue. Reading, gardening, scrapbooking, cross-stitching, crossword puzzles, and jigsaw puzzles were mentioned. Judy shared that her love of putting together jigsaw puzzles has become an obsession. Her father, Ted E. Akin, introduced this hobby to Judy at an early age. Upon her retirement from the education field, she began this hobby in earnest and keeps a puzzle going all the time at their second home in Rockport. Presently, she has 22 puzzles ready for framing to be done by her husband, Larry Childress. Two completed and framed puzzles were displayed, “Tapestry of the Centuries” and “All the World’s a Stage.”
“Tapestry of the Centuries” shows people in events from Jesus Christ through the 20th century. “All the World’s a Stage” references all 38 plays in the generally accepted Shakespeare canon, with 35 characters found within the completed puzzle. At the conclusion of the program, Judy presented the completed and framed puzzle “All the World’s a Stage” to her friend, Molly Rowell, as a remembrance of their vacation together at the London Shakespeare Festival. Judy’s trademark for her puzzles is one missing piece. To disguise this missing piece, Judy uses a special pen used to color in the blank space.
In attendance for the meeting were Charlin Akin, Vanessa Bosanko, Linda Carden, Judy Childress, Gina Deason, Helen Deason, Cathy Hilton, Ginger Jackson, Mildred Kallies, Sue McLelland, Bernice Person, Molly Rowell, Sharon West, Barbara Wiatrek, and Billie Jo Wolff.
