November Meeting

Hi Ladies,

With a balcony banner reading "WELCOME LAKE VISTA GARDEN CLUB," our meeting at Gloria Moore's home was off to a great start! Speaker Mary Lou Widmer entertained us all discussing her book and it's connection to the history of New Orleans. Gloria and her hard working committee comprised of Petra Junius, Melissa Adolph, Chrissy Bourdais and Louise Kirchberg served a delicious Southern-style meal, setting the bar high for the next luncheon committee. As you can see in the attached photos, Cara Dessens' floral displays were seasonably perfect! Karen Smith's report on those cute little hummingbirds was very entertaining as well as educational.

October Garden Club Meeting

Hi Ladies -

Wow! What a gorgeous day for an outdoor meeting at Pam Ortiz's lovely home. We had an awesome turnout today as you can see from the photos taken by Laura Carman. Everyone enjoyed the great luncheon prepared by Kimberly Zibilich and her team consisting of Karen Smith, Heather Mayfield, and Michele Bravo. Kerrie deVay's floral arrangement perfectly accented the decor in the dining room. Once again, our anniversary cake looked and tasted devine thanks to Yvonne McCulla.

Sallie Walker did an outstanding job researching and presenting the past Presidents' reports - every President had such special memories of their term in office. Sallie's report will be an asset to our archives.
