Before the gift exchange, Trish Arink conducted the business meeting. There were brief discussions concerning last month’s bazaar, our participation in Story Fest, the cancellation of the Vendor’s Sale with the possibility of rescheduling, along with a few other minor topics. The Inspirational was read by Linda Black and was the interesting story of how “Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer” came to be written by Robert L. May. Our program was led by Lee Smith and the group sang a few Christmas Carols – sounded pretty good, too! Finally, a game called “Sweet Tooth” was played and in it we each were to read a description for a candy bar and come up with the name of the candy.
At a special called meeting earlier in the month the members had decided to donate this year to the Women’s Shelter in Corpus Christi. Some of our ladies donated cash while others elected to purchase various clothing articles. Our “Christmas Basket” was picked up by a representative from the Shelter after Dec. 8th.
For those in our neighborhood who are curious about the winners for the raffle back in November: Joyce Sattler of Arrowhead won the barbeque grill; Lamon Bennett of George West won the quilt; Erica Perez of Pernitas Point won the tablecloth; B. J. Northcut of Arrowhead won the Academy Gift Certificate. The Community Club wants to thank our neighbors for their continued support by purchasing these tickets every year.
Our Jan. meeting will be on the 12th starting at 11 a.m. New member prospects are invited to join us at the Lagarto School and, as usual, we will be enjoying a “bring-a-dish” luncheon.
