SOLSC Day 30
We attended out Dauphin County/Lebanon County Retired Teachers Brunch on Wednesday. Although there were a few glitches everything went well. I am so glad.
We usually have a guest speaker or entertainer at these gatherings. The way it works is that Dauphin County takes care of finding a place to hold the event, setting the date, agreeing on the menu and price. These were all things I handled.
Lebanon County is responsible for getting the speaker/entertainer. This arrangement works well for me. I am ashamed to say this but we hold it at the same place every year. The menu doesn’t change and the price remains the same. It takes me one phone call to set things up. This system was in place long before I took over the job of president and both chapters are happy with it.
The woman who got us our entertainer really outdid herself. We had a lyric soprano. She has a 4 octave range. Her name is Jessica Weidman.
Here she is with her sound technician also known as her mother.
During her performance Jessica decided to test us because we were all school employees. She had a question for each song she sang. We had to listen to the song to get the answer to the question. The winner would get this basket containing teas, a cup, honey spoons, treats, and Jessica’s two CDs.
Guess who won.
Afterwards we went to the quilt show as I posted yesterday doing only the vendor mall. Yesterday we went to the main quilt display and wow! I will start posting those pictures on Tuesday and continue that thread for several weeks once I figure out how I want to group them. However, as an enticement here are a couple of quilts we saw. These are not award winners.
This first one has jewels in its title. I can see why.
I was wondering if I could take this one home.
As you can see it clearly says it is my garden.
Hope you’ll come back on Tuesday to see some more.
