The Floresville Musical Club met on Feb. 11 in the First Lutheran Church in Floresville. Members and guests were greeted by the hostesses for February: LaJuana Newnam-Leus, Linda Pipes, Lenora Dickens, Margie Davis, Sandy Vogel, Elaine Kolodziej, Peggy Tope, Nancy Traeger, Sandy Migl, Bea Ploch, Edna Brownlow, Lana Rossini, Sara Canady, and Priscilla Kincaid.

In the absence of Peggy Tipton, club president, the meeting was called to order by Lydia Martinez. Sarah Gella reported that we need to select a representative for the Peanut Festival. High school girls in the junior class are eligible.

Johnny Hewell, head of the S.T.A.R.S. program at the Floresville Alternative Education Center, was presented with a check from Lydia Martinez and Carol Richardson as part of our benevolence offering. Mr. Hewell told us a little bit about his program, which is supported entirely by money raised by the students with no cost to the taxpayers. Last year they raised and sold plants totaling $17,000.

Our student performer was Lauren Estrada. She performed several selections on her clarinet that were enjoyed by all. Our other performers were Patti and Tom Kuykendall, who gave us a musical and poetic valentine’s presentation. Tom recited poems from Robert Burns as well as Shakespeare. Patti sang a beautiful song titled “Only God Could Love You More Than I Do.”

Sarah Gella reported to the club that we will not be able to meet in the Lutheran church next year, but it has been arranged to move to the Methodist church. It will be necessary to replace our storage cabinet, and it was suggested that items that are not used be sold or discarded. This move will not take place until next October.

We were asked to remember those in the club and their families who are sick. Members mentioned Peggy and Ron Tipton, Betty Dismuke, Nan Tackitt, and Betty Leifeste’s husband.

Lydia reminded us of the style show that will be held at our April meeting. The styles will be from Sisters Boutique and models are needed. Some of the upcoming events in our community include a Style Show planned for Saturday, March 8, by the United Methodist Women, and the Feb. 22 Wine and Art Festival sponsored by Sacred Heart School.

Viola Henke informed us that the house band for the Opry has been invited to perform in Branson, Mo., May 18-22. A bus has been rented to go to Branson, and there are still openings if anyone is interested in going.

There being no further business, we were treated to a lovely reception.

The hostesses chose a Valentine’s Day theme for their decorations. The tables were covered with red tablecloths and red flowers. Delicious refreshments consisted of chicken salad sandwiches, veggie bars, assorted pecans, and heart-shaped red velvet cake.
