Our January meeting was educational. Blanco County House Representative Jason Isaac was the guest speaker for the Legislative committee and he shared wonderful information. Mr. Isaac has a trucking background and was sworn in during 2011. His first bill focused on making sure veterans can show proof of their service easier by getting their status put on their state IDs and licenses. He is a strong supporter of education, businesses, and state parks. It was encouraging to see how he showed interest and support for libraries when members talked to him. He is a very active citizen and receptive to having people actually visit him in his office in Austin. While the Blanco Woman’s Club is nonpartisan, it was very nice to have our representative make a personal appearance. Thank you to the Legislative ladies, Candy Cargill, Dean Myane, Millie Jones, Carolyn Boydston, and Rhonda Norville, for setting this up!
To our hostesses, Linda Nash, Wendy Watson, and Gwen Risinger, your New Year’s themed treats were perfectly timed. Ladies, please remember to keep Pat Vallone in your thoughts; she has had surgery and is working on recovering.
The elections for Blanco Library Inc. were held during this meeting and the following were the results: Charlotte Widick is the new President, and Liz Waller-Broyal is the new Treasurer. Congratulations, ladies! We look forward to seeing the wonders you will generate! The Nominating Committee for the Woman’s Club will announce the officers they recommend at our February 12th meeting. Everyone, if you have not turned in your membership dues, remember bring your checks to this next meeting at The Lodge at the Landing.
Also, for those who remember Jewell Scott, who volunteered at the library and is a former member of the Woman’s Club, she is celebrating her 90th birthday this weekend. If you would like to send her a card, please get them to the library by this Friday or find her grandson Charles Willgren to take them to her. See you all next week!
