Saw Norma & Tom Woolsey at the Valley Symphony's chamber music concert at IMAS, and she reminded me that the Museum Guild is sponsoring a "Touch of Spring" luncheon and style show on March 6th. Important note for the ladies: they would like your reservations by February 25th at $25 a person. Sponsorships are also available, so call Rosie Cardenas for more info at 631-6631. Co-chairs are Yolanda Barrera and Elizabeth Perkins . . .
Had a quick visit with IMAS Director Serena Rosencrantz, as well as Curator (and former coworker) Elena MacĂ-as. Since the chamber music was played in the art gallery showing Leonardo Nierman's "Labyrinth of Dreams," the evening's theme of "Art Meets Music" was beautifully appropriate . . .
Saw the whole audience really tuned in to the Schubert chamber music, and they eagerly jumped up for a loooong standing ovation. These talented musicians wove a spell at our musical evening: Geoffrey Wong and Diana Seitz, first violins; Joel G. PagĂˇn, viola; Benjamin Ponder and Sarah Kapps, cellos . . .
Had fun with Ann & Jerry Greenfield — who knew Jerry was such a music lover?
To start the evening off right, an array of palate-pleasing wines were provided by "Water to Wine," delicious hors d'oeuvres were provided by personal chef Heather Graner (www.magicvalleygourmet.biz), and yummy chocolate-dipped desserts were provided by owner Eddie Benavidez and the CedaChocolate Lounge (firstname.lastname@example.org) . . .
Enjoyed Peggy Nix's program, and met author Elizabeth Gearhart, who wrote VICTORious Life along with Victor Alvarez and Mary Cloud. They all reminded me that the people we know, mix with, and/or read about truly do provide our blessings. If you don't have enough blessings, get out there and meet some!
Saw some lovely Junior League sustainers at Susie Guidry's beautiful Valentine-themed home, including (but not limited to) Debbie Groves, Marylee Alaniz, Tina Martin, Molly Grossman, Renee Hinojosa, Maricela Gomez, Austin Miller, Maria Elena Useda, Carmen Guerra, Janet Wallace, Melody Alleyn, Marian Turk, Melinda Bosquez, Connie Fielder-Norton, and Ann Moore. (If you were there and weren't mentioned, it was not a malicious omission. Remember that one of the privileges of sustainerhood is to forgetfulness.)
Saw Linda Cattaruzza & hubby Charles Graham having fun with a dinner group, then Linda was talking movies with Carol Lynn & Cullen Looney . . .
Heard on the bridge players' grapevine that Bob Cody is a skilled gentleman. In fact, I'm finding out that more and more people are having fun playing bridge, such as Sheila Fernauld, Mary Lou Schwarz, Carol Dixon, Jane Ann Seal, and Carolyn Landrum . . .
This coming Saturday, you could enjoy the Pioneer Ranching Crafts Day from 10-4 at the Museum of South Texas History in Edinburg. Check out the many activities at www.mosthistory.org, or call Melissa Tijerina at the museum, 383-6911 . . .
Happy birthday for last Monday, the 15th, to Wileen King, with much affection . . .
Happy birthday for yesterday to Alma Zamora, Javier Chamberlain, and David Peterson . . .
Some of today's birthday celebrants include Becky Gerling and busy Norma Woolsey . . .
And for tomorrow, birthday cheer is wished to Lisa Hettler, Jody Guerra, Marissa Monroe, Carla de la Garza, and Kathy Haynes . . .
