Musical Club members hear author’s book presentation
Attendees enjoy a little social time March 11 before they kick off the Musical Club meeting.
The Floresville Musical Club held its monthly meeting on March 11 in the First Lutheran Church.
Peggy Tipton called the meeting to order, and Carolyn Bump introduced her hostesses: Beth Price, Glynda Merritt, Bonna Reed, Liz Greenfield, Judith Smith, Lillie Ray, Lydia Martinez, Rose Lee Risley, Linda Schulz, Norma Drozd, and Pat Brown.
Sarah Gella reported that our representative for the Peanut Festival will be Julie Rakowitz, Shirley Lyssy’s niece. Julie will be a senior next year at Floresville High School. She is an excellent student and participates in many school activities. Julie is a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and is very active with the ACTS retreat. She will be at our meeting next month.
Sarah announced that the Peanut Festival rehearsal dinner will be held in the school cafeteria on Oct. 8. Help will be needed and signup sheets are available. A signup sheet is also available for hostess duties for next year.
Our move to the Methodist Church will take place on Tuesday, April 15. A search is under way to locate a cabinet that will meet our needs, and it has been decided that we will only keep the white milk glass set of dishes.
Next month will feature a style show provided by Sisters Boutique. We were urged to take a guest.
Our program consisted of a book presentation given by Thelma Garcia Celestino, the author of the book Are We Almost There? Thelma and her nine siblings are natives of Floresville. The book is about her family working as migrant workers, and she shares the story of each of the siblings, all of their hardships, and the lessons they learned about life through hard work, determination, and dedication. Her presentation was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The meeting was then adjourned and we were presented with an interesting and enjoyable reception. The tables were set with different crafts, where several of the ladies shared their talents with us.
