The Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club met Oct. 14 in the home of Ginger Jackson for the regular monthly business meeting and the celebration of the club’s 90th birthday. The hostess carried out the birthday theme in the refreshments and table decorations.
President Bernice Person called the meeting to order. Due to a guest speaker, the program was presented prior to the conduction of the club’s business portion of the meeting.
Program Leader Linda Carden introduced V.O. “Butch” Carden, a local lawyer. Carden’s law practice is made up of probate trust law, farm and ranch agricultural law, oil and gas law, real estate, and many other types of law. He likes to say he has earned the name of a “country lawyer.” Carden spoke to the group regarding oil and gas leases and the conveyance of oil and gas leases and royalties. A question-and-answer time concluded the program.
The business meeting began with the reading of the minutes of the September meeting by Acting Secretary Judy Childress. Mildred Kallies, incoming secretary and treasurer, conducted the roll call.
Committee reports were given by Helen Deason, card chairman, who sent 18 cards in September, and Edith Akin, October Nursing Home Visitor, who provided items for the bingo games. The Yearbook Committee -- Charlin Akin, Susan Cotter, Sue McLelland, and Sharon West -- distributed the 2013-14 Club Yearbooks. The theme for the new year is “Legacy -- Life -- Love” and the committee was congratulated for a “work well done” on the beautiful and unique yearbook.
Hostess for the November meeting will be Susan Cotter, with Vanessa Bosanko to serve as program leader. Edith Akin will serve as the November Nursing Home Visitor.
In attendance for the meeting were members Charlin Akin, Edith Akin, Linda Carden, Judy Childress, Susan Cotter, Kay Deagen, Helen Deason, Mary Denson, Ginger Jackson, Mildred Kallies, Sandy Lynn, Sue McLelland, Bernice Person, Molly Rowell, Pat Rutland, Barbara Wiatrek, and guest V.O. Carden.
