The First Lutheran Church in Floresville hosted the monthly meeting of the Floresville Musical Club on Jan. 14. As the members entered, they were greeted by the hostesses for this meeting.

President Peggy Tipton called the meeting to order and welcomed the members and guests. She reported on the collection for our Benevolence Offering collected in December. Part of this collection will be used for the Star Program in the Alternative Middle School and the rest will be for the scholarship that we sponsor.

Amy Carter reported that the deadline for submitting an application is Thursday, March 20. Seniors that have been home-schooled are also eligible to apply. It is important that the application requirements are met in order to be considered.

Sarah Gella reported that next month we will need to submit nominations for our representative for the Peanut Festival. To be eligible, the girl selected must be a senior for the school year of 2014-15. If any member has daughters or granddaughters that fit these qualifications, they were urged to submit their names.

Carole Richardson gave the treasurer’s report, and Jim Helmke was thanked for operating the sound system.

Lydia Martinez talked about program events that are to be presented in the upcoming months. She urged everyone to remember the style show that will be held in April. Fashions will be from Sisters Boutique and Gifts and there will be door prizes. Invite a friend to come with you. May will feature our Tour of Homes, which is always enjoyable.

Our student performer was Rebekah Canady, a Floresville Middle School student. Rebekah, the daughter of Sara Canady, is the granddaughter of LaJuana Newnam-Leus. She entertained us with a “Tribute to Elvis.” A table had been set with countless Elvis’ memorabilia, which was enjoyed by all. Rebekah’s presentation included bits of trivia concerning Elvis, that many of us were not aware of, and we had a good time going back down memory lane.

We were then entertained by the “Texas Country Trio.” Pat Fox introduced the group that is part of the house band that plays for the Floresville Opry. Besides Pat, the group consists of Diana Farley and Kenny Penny. Pat is a hometown girl and is really happy to be performing in Floresville. We were treated to a medley of tunes including a Johnny Cash song, blue grass, a Gospel song, and of course, an Elvis song.

Birthdays and anniversaries for the month were acknowledged, and Peggy thanked the members for the nice card that she received during her stay in the hospital.

LaJuana reminded everyone that it is time to be thinking about election of officers for next year. She will be looking for nominations in the coming months. There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned with a prayer led by Betsy Leifeste.

We were then treated to a delightful reception by the following hostesses Rhea Nell Rogers, Mary Ann Johnston, Denise Wyant, Gladys Pawelek, Nan Tackett, Rose Lee Hoelscher, Mary Jordan, Mary Jo Karam, Leona Maples, Chrystal Eckel, Carleen FitzSimon, Sophia Rodriguez, and Diana Savage. The tables were beautifully set with “Dream Catchers.”
