kitty lichtyPRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

The Women’s Club spring dinner/dance is a highlight of every year. The elegant Black and Bling Ball did not disappoint. Carole Dann and Karen Morter hit it out of the park with this one! Spectacular flowers, the sequined table in the entry hall, the mood lighting, delicious food and the band were only a few of the elements making for a festive evening enjoyed by all.

Additional bling was added by all our lady guests adorned with sequins and jewels. Some even added bling to their hair, wore glittered stilettos or accessorized with gorgeous scarves. Our gentlemen escorts completed our black and bling theme with their fashionable evening attire.

With a membership of 521 strong which includes 91 new members, we can be proud of all our successes this year. Encourage all your eligible friends to become members and participate in our numerous fun activities and events.
  
Kitty Lichty, President







sharon gilmorePROGRAMS

Please join us as we welcome our last speaker of the year, Dr. Laura Hernandez-Ehrisman.  Dr. Hernandez-Ehrisman is Assistant Professor in the School of Education at St. Edward's University where she teaches courses in American and World History and Global Tourism. She received her PhD. in American Studies from the University of Texas at Austin and her research focuses on public history and memory in the San Antonio area.

Her presentation is based on her book Inventing the Fiesta City:  Heritage and Carnival in San Antonio, which tells the story of how the city's annual Fiesta San Antonio celebration was
created, and how it transformed through the twentieth century. Through its many parades, pageants and street fairs, Fiesta has come to represent the unique fusion of cultures that make up this community's identity.

Her work analyzes the struggles to expand and redefine the festival over more than 100 years of its history. Tradition defines our culture and character as a nation of immigrants, and I'm sure her talk will delight all as we learn about our past and how it is defining us today.  Also, as we know, everyone loves a parade! 

Sharon Gilmore, 1st Vice President
