Musical Club closes out its books on an enjoyable year
Musical Club President Peggy Tipton shows off the wind chimes she received as a gift for all of her hard work and dedication this past year.
The final meeting of the Floresville Musical Club for 2013-14 was held May 13 in the beautiful home of James and Betty Freasier. As guests entered the magnificent foyer, they were greeted by Janice Pruitt and her hostesses: Alene Quinney, Viola Henke, Carolyn Andrews, Betty Dismuke, Jeanine Livingston, Joyce Gorden, Shirley Lyssy, JoAnn Hartmann, and Sandy Detamore.
Members were seated in the spacious family room and the meeting was called to order by club President Peggy Tipton. Peggy began by thanking the officers for this year, and presenting them with a gift showing her appreciation. Peggy was then given a plaque and wind chimes for all of her hard work and dedication to the club.
LaJuana Newnam-Leus, head of the nominating committee, presented the slate of officers nominated for the coming year: President Lydia Martinez, First VP LaJuana Newnam-Leus, Second VP Sandy Vogel, Third VP Bonna Reed, Treasurer Carol Richardson, Reporter Rita Gardner, and Historian Olga Alvarez.
The committee chairs are Courtesy, Bea Ploch; Nominating, LaJuana Newnam-Leus; Scholarship, Amy Carter; and Photographer, Rita Gardner.
The director to the Peanut Festival board is Sarah Gella, and the Peanut Festival representative is Julie Rakowitz.
There being no further nominations from the floor, this slate was approved.
Sarah Gella reminded everyone of the Queen’s Party to be held in October. Help will be needed and she urged members to volunteer. Also help will be needed for the Goober Games and the ticket booth during the Peanut Festival.
The treasurer’s report was given by Carol Richardson. Members were reminded of upcoming events in the community, and birthdays and anniversaries for this month and the coming summer months were acknowledged. Prayers were requested for members who are ill. We were also reminded that our next meeting in October will be held in the Methodist Church. A delightful poem on aging and forgetfulness was read by Betsy Leifeste. It was much enjoyed, as we could all associate with this.
As we held our meeting, the hostesses served refreshments. This consisted of a lovely box adorned with an orchid. Inside were delicious pasta salad and dessert. We also thoroughly enjoyed the music of Shaun Murray and his young daughter, Lilly.
After the meeting, we were invited to tour the Freasiers’ home. The beautiful stained glass throughout the house, the awesome view from every room, and the gigantic oak trees were just some of the highlights of the tour. We appreciated the Freasiers’ hospitality in opening up their home to us.
