While a primary purpose of our organization is the maintenance and care of the Old Lagarto School, we find ourselves involved with other organizations, as well, in an effort to assist with their programs and activities. An example was our donation last month to the Women’s Shelter in Corpus Christi. This month our treasurer made what has become an annual donation to the Live Oak County Fair Association. Also, annually, we provide scholarships to children at our local high schools…this year’s committee chairman will be Sharon Tonne again. Another donation made last month was to the South Texas Children’s Home in Beeville in memory of Dee Worsham.
The annual Rummage Sale is scheduled for April 14th this year and already members are hauling in their valuable donations to help make this the best sale ever. Because we had cancelled our December Vendor’s sale, it was voted to bring the vendors in to participate in this April sale. Vendors can reserve a table for only $10 by calling Trish Arink at 547-0458. Connie Castanon is the committee chair for the Rummage Sale and, hopefully, she will have recovered fully from her surgery by then!
The club is not “all work and no play” as we do have guest speakers from time to time. This month we had a local resident, a registered nurse and consultant to home health agencies, Ms. Beverly Strong, who gave a presentation on Medicare requirements regarding home health services. She enlightened us all by discussing in detail the services that these agencies offer.
An outing has been planned for the 28th of the month to attend the 2012 Quilt Show being held in Rockport. It should be a fun day ending with a great meal at the Big Fisherman.
Winning the door prize at this January meeting, Trish Arink received a decorative fragrance diffuser.
Workshops begin again on Feb. 2nd, 9 a.m. and our next scheduled meeting will be on Feb. 9th, at 11 a.m. We have two (2) new members and you can join us too – maybe you would like to do some “soft” aerobatics or maybe you can pull out a chair at the card table. We really need some “crafters” so come on over and check us out at the Lagarto School on FM 534.
