Due to technical difficulties, the Potpourri was short and sweet last week. However, I need to let everyone know what a treat the Gala at the Courthouse was. It was definitely the place to see and be seen, with everyone who attended in some of their fanciest duds and lots of BLING! A HUGE THANK YOU TO BOB AND CAROLYN BOYDSTON and they know why!!!
The EEA luncheon was also a treat - it was like being at a family reunion - there was so much delicious food it took at least 3 plates to try a little of everything. The combined Homemakers Clubs did themselves proud. The door prizes were beautiful, and there were cookbooks for sale; these cookbooks include the recipes of the things served at the luncheon. Not only was the food good, the entertainment was spectacular! Some violins, a guitar, and an accordion PLUS a vocalist - we were able to hum along because the tunes were familiar - Wes has a wonderful voice.
A little run-down on the events over the next few weekends - there is a powwow/reenactment at the fort on the way to Fredericksburg, with lots of authentic (and wonderful food) this weekend, next weekend is the annual car show at the Blanco State Park, the following weekend is Memorial Day, and the last weekend (May 31st) is the Real Ale Bike Ride that will benefit the new library! Get out and have some fun!
On Saturday, April 26, Wes, Charlotte and Crystal Thomas all traveled to Austin to visit with Wes and Charlotte’s son Michael Trevino and his girlfriend Candise Treiber to have delicious dinner made for them especially by Candise. Joining them were Brenda Treiber, Brittany Hesskew and Tay.
On May 1, Marvin and Lorie Stetler hosted a KBB "Farewell Party" for Charles Willgren at their Stetler River Road Ranch. Seventeen of the directors and volunteers gathered for a delicious meal and for a fun time of playing bocce ball, visiting and enjoying the fellowship. Charles joined KBB in 2004 and his talents and contributions have helped make the organization a strong voice in the City of Blanco. He was elected president in 2006.
Charles will be moving to Ft. Collins, Colorado, the first week of June to be with his sister and friends. He will continue to work with the Blanco County News on their websites and publications. Ft. Collins' gain is our loss.
We will all miss Charles a lot and wish him a very happy and prosperous future and hope to see him visit us often. With the computer and e-mails it will be like he is next door and we will still be in touch and he will still be helping us out when we don't know how to do something on the computer!
