Last Wednesday, January 13, 2010, was the monthly Blanco Woman’s Club meeting, and what a meeting it was! It was held at the Blanco Library, and the themed decorations were all about travel. The roll was called, each of us answering with our favorite travel destination, real or imaginary.
Program chairs gave their reports, including our community project report by Dean Myane, a report by Viki Simmons on encaustic painting (which is done with beeswax and is beautiful), and a report by Peggy Welch about the Penguin Publishing Company (which was fascinating, to me anyway). The Music Department was in charge of the program; Diane Turner gave a little talk about our music heritage and then introduced our featured guests, Lucy and Betty Courtney, a mother-and-daughter duo, who played, respectively, the guitar and the fiddle. We then had a rousing sing-along, with colorful lyric sheets in hand. We sang so enthusiastically (and loudly) that several of the patrons in the library said they wished they could have joined us!
Following the blending of our melodious voices in harmony, our president, Bonnie Holmes, adjourned the meeting, and we partook of many tasty goodies, served by our hostesses, Candy Cargill, Tish Johnson, Bonnie Holmes, Priscilla Seals, and Mary Nabers, in a setting conducive to travelling, with travel posters and photographs, etc., decorating the walls. The next meeting will be held at the Blanco Library on February 10, 2010, at 2:00 PM.
