The docents of the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture met
Sept. 30 at the Holiday Inn to participate in a training session on English white ironstone. Sally S. Erdman from Denton presented an informative program using some examples from her 1,000-piece collection of white ironstone to show the different styles and patterns of that 19th century china. Mrs. Erdman, assisted by her husband, Howard Erdman, showed a video on the history of making white ironstone, tracing the art from its beginning to the present time. All the information presented to the docents will be useful in giving tours to visitors because the museum has one of the largest white ironstone collections in Texas.

the Eagle Magazine. Sick and Visiting chairman reported on sick members Alice Seeliger, Lillian Heideman, Mary Louise Spears and Earlene Janssen. Sunshine chairman reported food trays were made for the families of Howard Schaefer and Roy Haecker. It was voted to send $200 to both the Golden Eagle Fund and Alzheimer’s Fund. The purchase of a new carpet for the Wurstfest booth was approved. Lori Hollowcll will furnish a shuttle for Wurstfest workers. Please call her to make arrangements.

St. Ann's Christian Mother’s Society of Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church held its monthly meeting at 2 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Barbara Chichester, new member, along with 46 regular members, was in attendance.
Evelyn Tait, program chairman, introduced the guest speaker, Carol Belton. Carol is retired vice president of Tenneco Oil in Houston. He has been on the State Republican Executive Committee for IO years and was Republican precinct
chairman in Houston for 14 years. Carol gave a wonderful, nonpartisan speech. He shared a story of how his wife, Gerry, became involved in politics. Her relatives were German people in Germany and Carol asked them how Hitler had gotten so powerful and taken over these very nice people. How did it happen? Their reply was, “the people did nothing.”
We cannot sit by and “do nothing.” It is a duty and a privilege to vote. It is so important for all of us to exercise this right. It’s our own fault if we do not know enough about the various candidates. Seek out the information and vote. Carol gave the qualifications to vote. He stated some big differences between the two parties. Take your time; there are people there who will assist you to make the voting easier.
Frances Halbadier has cards for $5 each. These are spiritual remembrances for birthdays, marriage, sympathy, anniversary, birth, recovery, graduation, etc. The cards are from the Assumption Seminary in San Antonio. Those who are interested can call Frances at 625-4442.
Veronica Erben explained that the purpose of the evergreen wreath is an old tradition for a fond farewell to a member of our organization who passes away.
Camelita Horan read an article from the San Antonio newspaper, “Country can’t afford second Clinton term.” An excerpt from the article says, “The only question we have to answer to ourselves, our children and our grandchildren is: Can we afford four more years of this? I think not,” written by Tom Shumaker.
Our next meeting will be noon Nov. 21 at the Knights of Columbus Hall. It will be the Thanksgiving covered dish luncheon. The club will furnish the turkey, dressing and gravy, and Dorothy Moose will be in
