It’s all over!!  Well, temporarily—the run- off elections will be held on May 27th so we will be bombarded with flyers and phone calls for a while.   What a ride it has been.  I have never seen such viciousness amongst Republican candidates and I am sure the Democrats have loved it.   If your favorite candidate did not win, we must unite now and work for all of the candidates to keep Texas red.  Congratulations to the winners.  We are here for you.

Thank you Virginia Van Cleave for opening your beautiful home for our February 18 reception.   If you didn’t attend you missed out—Virginia’s home is amazing. There are so many others to thank for making the reception so successful.   Patty Gibbons and all her helpers, Barbara Bearr along with Jan Clarke, Ken and Carolyn McCollister for manning the registration tables, Sara White and all her greeters/food carriers,  Sharon Kemp and Jan Zeppelin accepting registration forms and doing nametags. Oh my goodness what can I say about all the members who brought food.    It was awesome.  You are all so appreciated.  That is what makes us such a great club—you pitch in and help wherever and whenever needed.

To our new members, please volunteer to serve on a committee.  We need you.  I know Ginny Shannon, Telephone Chair is looking for callers. Her number is 684-4880.   It is a one-day a month job.   Patty Gibbons, Membership Chair needs helpers on her committee.  Call Patty at 601-2318.   Sara also needs greeters for the luncheons.  Call Sara at 290-9040.  These are good committees to start out with and a good way to get to know other members but we have other committees who need workers too.  Let us know what your expertise is.

The Bexar County Senatorial Conventions will be held on Saturday March 24th.   A convention is held in each Senatorial District.  If you voted in the Primary but didn’t attend your Precinct Meeting on Election Day, you may still be eligible to serve as a delegate to the State Convention in June.  Call your Precinct Chair or call the local party HQ at 824.9445.

Invite a friend to the luncheon.  Mrs. Abbott is just lovely.  I have not met our other speaker but he comes with a wonderful resume so I know it will be another great meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 18th.
