The Floresville Musical Club met on Dec. 10 at the First Lutheran Church in Floresville. Peggy Tipton called the meeting to order and introduced guests present. Lauren Estrada, our representative for this year’s Peanut Festival, and her escort, Aaron Balles, were introduced. Also present was Avanell Titus, a charter member of the club. Even though Avanell is a charter member, she is a very active member of the club.

Louise Stadler introduced her hostesses for this month, Anna Price, Betty Stokes, Betsy Leifeste, Patsy Cotton, Polly Bayer, JoNelle Zager, Sue Witten, Janice Green, Mary Carrasco, Linda Perry, Nancy Pritchard, Sabrina Bradburn, and Marilyn Zolkoski.

The treasurer’s report was then given by Carolyn Richardson. Her report included the Queen’s Peanut Festival rehearsal dinner and also a report for the months of November and December. Sarah Gella introduced Lauren Estrada, and Lauren gave us a rundown of her activities during the Peanut Festival. She said that even though she had to stand for a long period of time, the coronation was the experience of a lifetime. She also enjoyed riding in the parade. Lauren Estrada is the granddaughter of Betsy Leifeste, one of our members.

The members were then entertained by two equally talented performances. First to perform was Julia Weaver, a regular performer at the Floresville Opry. She is 11 years old and a sixth-grade student at Sacred Heart School. Julia’s grandmother is Elaine Kolodziej, a member of our club. The next group to delight us was the Garza family, Elena, Mikayla, and Stephen. They have been singing together most of their lives, and their grandmother is Dora Garza. Beautiful Christmas songs as well as other selections were sung by both performers.

Anniversaries and birthdays for the month were acknowledged. Also members present reported on members that are sick or have lost loved ones. Everyone was urged to notify Betty Dismuke, our courtesy committee chairman, so that cards can be sent. Upcoming events for this Christmas season were also mentioned. There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned by a prayer led by Linda Pipes.

The members were then treated to a delightful Christmas reception. The tables were all decorated with various nutcrackers. The nutcrackers were collected by Janice Green throughout the world. The decorations on the head table were handmade from Germany. Delicious refreshments of tamales, tortilla rolls, chips, and cheese, a cupcake dessert, and chocolate candy were served. A wassail punch was the drink enjoyed on such a cold evening.
