Please forgive the misspelling of the names of two of our illustrious citizens - the proofreader didn't have a proofreader! In Mrs. Lindeman's birthday note, it was not Shawn Cox, but Sharon Cox, and, in the note about our new librarian, her name is really Trisha Campbell, not Tricia Campbell.
On November 9, 2007, the Friends of the Library are working with Sibby Barrett and Onion Creek Farms for a marvelous meal for this year's Dinner and a Movie. The dinner will be at the courthouse, of course, and we will have an exhibition of Texas dance hall photographs as the theme, with movie to follow at the library - we are still in the process of choosing just the right movie to complement the dinner and the exhibit. More on that also as the days go by.
The Blanco Community Choir's Christmas rehearsals are in full swing (or sing). We still need bass voices, so, if there is anyone out there who has a secret (or not-so-secret) hankering to sing REAL low, please come on over. Rehearsals are held at 4:00 PM every Sunday at the Baptist church.
Dorothy Dillon took a tumble at her garage sale. She is feeling a bit out of sorts - we hope she mends very quickly. At least it didn't affect her lovely singing voice, and we are glad for that!
Marc and Laura Mabrito are involved in a Minutemen Rangers ball at the courthouse (it's a good thing we HAVE the courthouse - it is the site of lots of exciting things) on September 29, 2007. Period costume is welcomed, but you can also go in street clothes. Dancing will be lots of fun, as it will be old-time dancing, like the Virginia Reel. Very easy to learn for everyone.
Blanco Methodist women hosted a party on a recent Thursday afternoon to celebrate the September birthdays of three residents of Live Oak Medical Center. The honorees were Margaret Parmer, Lilli Foster and Virginia Bownds. Entertainment was provided by Darlene Kiernan at the piano, and Dorothy Dillon, Pastor Ken Greene, Ernest and Mary Ann Hoffman singing favorite old old songs. Hostesses Willie Olfers, Assisted by Activity Director , Pauline Walker and volunteers Doris Collins and Candy Kane, served a Dorothy Troppy cake with strawberry ice cream and punch.
