The Twentieth Century Club met in the home of Margo Carter on Thursday, April 16. President Bridget Fowler opened the meeting and Betty Finney gave the invocation. Sandy Dean called the roll, asking members to recall their biggest decorating disasters. Responses ranged from shag carpet and 2X4s on cinder blocks to wall papering fiascos and color choice regrets.
Minutes included regular business and information about the spring trip to the Dallas Arboretum and the Taster Salad Luncheon. Mary Ann Patterson read correspondence and Becky Skinner gave the treasurer’s report. Committee reports followed. Melinda Smith reported on the Taster Salad Luncheon, describing it a great success, serving over 200 people. Plans are already underway for next year.
Mrs. Smith also presented information regarding the spring luncheon to be held at Enoch’s Stomp. The event will include a tour of the winery and a luncheon. Betty Finney reported that the scholarship committee had received over 35 applications and a decision would be made in the coming week.
As chair of the membership committee, Sandy Dean read two letters requesting associate membership in the coming year. Members regretfully accepted the change in membership for long time members Betty Finney and Mary Ann Patterson. Associate membership frees both from club responsibilities while including them in club activities of their choosing. In other membership business, Merle Cross and Melinda Smith submitted Linda Connally’s name for new membership. Her acceptance was unanimous and members look forward to her joining the club.
