The Lagarto Community Club held their Nov. meeting on the 11th at 9 a.m., early so members could set up for the annual Christmas bazaar to be held Saturday, Nov. 13th. In the absence of President Lucy Cantu, Vice-President Linda Avila presided over the meeting. Fifteen members were present. Linda Avila read an inspirational story entitled “Parable of the Pencil” by Mark Sedrak. Members sang Happy Birthday to our birthday girl, Connie Reardon.

We want to thank all our members who worked at the Jim Well’s County Fair. We made a small profit, not as good at last year. Old business was discussed to continue the repairs and cleanup of our building. Bathroom and roof repairs were done and fir trees were cut down.

New business was that our next month meeting will be our Christmas party. We decided to again support the Woman’s Shelter. We will set up two baskets, one for women and one for children and start collecting donations. Linda Avila will coordinate this project. Members chose to have a gift exchange again, $10 limit. Anyone wanting to donate their gift after the exchange can donate them as well.

Members decided to hold a “Christmas in Lagarto” sale to sell any items left over from our bazaar. We will also open the sale to outside vendors at $20 a table. The date for this sale will be Dec. 4th. Jessica Keese will organize the vendors. At this time Jessica reports 5 or 6 signed up already! Trish Arink will prepare flyers to advertise the sale. It will start at 8 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. We will sell Frito pie and a drink for $2. Donuts will also be available to purchase and free coffee for everyone. So come do your Christmas shopping with us!

The door prize was drawn and Mary Salmon won a gift bag of body lotions. The meeting adjourned so members can set up for the Saturday Christmas bazaar. At the time of this writing, the bazaar is over and was very successful. We made over $2,000 in profits!

We would like to thank the community, friends and neighbors for making it such a huge success. We had a table of Christmas decorations, a table of afghans and other crocheted and knitted items, kitchen items, baby clothes and blankets, and one of miscellaneous items. We also had a raffle, a bake sale and a hot dog lunch. Money from the sale helps in the upkeep of the Old Lagarto School, help to the Boys and Girls Club of George West and for teen scholarships in the spring.

The next meeting for the Lagarto Community Club will be Dec. 9th at 11 a.m. We will have a Christmas Luncheon and gift exchange. Anyone interested in joining this group is welcome to attend.
