Best wishes for a long happy marriage to Kelsey Hellums & Adam Schach, who wed last Saturday, April 17, 2010 . . .
Grandmotherly congratulations go out to Carrie Agar of McAllen. Her daughter and son-in-law, Krissy & Matthew McHale of Pennsylvania, had a baby daughter and first child, Keagan Alexis, born April 11, 2010 — a tiny miracle and very welcome addition to the family . . .
Belated grandparental congratulations go to Susan & Medardo De Leon of Mission on the birth of their first grandchild, Declan Grant Lott, born to their daughter and son-in-law, Alana & Brandon Lott, in California last January 18, 2010. This sweet little baby boy will be making a trip to the Valley soon . . .
Kudos to these shining stars who were honored last night by the Zonta Club of West Hidalgo County: Jeanne Blackburn for her professional contributions, Pam Simpson for her educational contributions, and Joyce Smith for her community contributions. I have fond memories of all three of these women over the last many years, and can say that their honors are very well deserved . . .
Special thanks are due these ladies for their hard work on the Shining Stars gala: Nora London, Deitrah Davis, Pat Blum, Marianne Seal, Adrian Barlow, and Candi Fowler. Without hardworking volunteers, events such as this would not happen . . .
Debbie & Greg Morrow, Gretchen Garrett & L. D. Clopton, Sandra & Mike Frost, and Isabel & Ted Link were among those spotted having a Thursday night dinner out at the Country Club . . .
Symphony goers such as Jackie Jones, Margaret Colley, Carolyn & Ken Landrum, were among the audience enjoying last week’s symphony at Pan Am. Harlingen folks such as Ann Bassett even made the trip to hear beautiful music . . .
Speaking of Ann and Jackie, Ann’s daughter Nina Bassett and Jackie’s granddaughter Jacqueline Smith are both being honored as Duchesses by the Order of the Alamo in the Court of Dazzling Adornments for Fiesta Week 2010 in San Antonio! That would be this very week, and I’ve heard that it’s a fun fiesta time for all. Jacqueline’s parents are Jill & Dr. Marvin Smith of San Antonio . . .
Abby Talbot of McAllen is being honored in the children’s court for Fiesta. Her proud parents are Laura & Mark Talbot, and her proud grandparents are Jane & Morgan Talbot . . .
Saw Betty & Lonnie Gegenheimer with their children and grandchildren enjoying Easter brunch out, just a little bit ago . . .
Had a fun visit with Susan Galik and caught up on the golfer and tennis news of Cimarron . . .
Yesterday’s birthday celebrants included Katherine Scales and Ashton Urban . . .
For tomorrow, happy birthday wishes go out to Lorena Rojas, Bill Ranganath, and Drucilla Vinger . . .
