The Decora Study Club met for its Holiday Luncheon and Meeting at the Colony Creek Country Club on Tuesday, Dec. 13.
Mary Virginia Jacobs, program chairman for the day, introduced Debbie Durham, educational coordinator for the Victoria Symphony. Durham presented Katherine Murphy, strings instructor, who directed the V.I.S.D. sixth grade orchestra as they performed for the group of 50.
The quote by Mary Howitt was never truer than on this date, "God sends children to enlarge our hearts, and to make us unselfish and full of kindly sympathies and affections."
The Honorarium for the program today was donated to the Victoria Independent School District Orchestra Program.
President Francisca Watts opened the meeting; Carol Moore led the collect; the pledge to the American flag and the pledge to the Texas flag were led by Jalayne Tupa.
The Federation Report was given by Melicent Bryarly, as she traced the history of several popular holiday songs.
Hostesses for the meeting were Valerie Parker and Carol Rhode. Margaret Vaughan and Sandra Pyle served for the membership committee. The social committee was Bobbie Green and Zada Watkins.
The Invocation before the holiday buffet was given by the Rev. Betty Marr. After the meeting, the poinsettia centerpieces were given away to members.
The next meeting was announced as being Jan. 10, at the Women's Club House.
The program is titled "Cooking Light" and will be presented by Kathryn Klingle, registered dietician at Citizens Medical Center.
