Tanya Lamoreaux and Betty Meyer represented the Mason Bluebonnet Study Club at the Alamo District Fall Board Meeting held on October 15 in the stately old Woodward Mansion on San Pedro in San Antonio. Known these days as the San Antonio Woman’s Clubhouse, the building is maintained and used by 18 clubs in the area. Host club for this meeting was the San Antonio Woman’s Federation. A part of the Texas Federation of Women’s Clubs, General Federation of Women’s Clubs, the Alamo District is comprised of thirteen clubs including Rosetta Club of Beeville, Woman’s Club of Cotulla, Lytle Woman’s Club, Bluebonnet Study Club of Mason, Woman’s Club of Pleasanton, Woman’s Study Club of Port Lavaca, Rocksprings Woman’s Club, Woman’s Club of Refugio, San Antonio Woman’s Federation, Bronte Club of Victoria, Decora Club of Victoria, Morning Study Club of Victoria, and Sandalphon Study Club of Victoria. Twenty-four delegates were present at the meeting.Alamo District president Carol Habgood of the San Antonio club presided over the day long meeting. During the committee report period, Betty Meyer who chairs the GFWC Domestic Violence Awareness Committee gave a talk on the importance of all clubs supporting local shelters and getting the word out that help is just a phone call away for victims. She asked all clubs to make the national hotline number, 1-800-799-7233 available anywhere possible so that a victim can quietly slip it into a pocket or purse for use when needed. The other local delegate, Tanya Lamoreaux served on the ballot counting committee and was appointed to serve on the Minutes Approval Committee. Ms. Lamoreaux also gathered information on the scholarships available to our local Mason students in the upcoming year. Since she serves as Program Chair for the Bluebonnet Study Club, Ms. Lamoreaux had an interest in program ideas voiced by other clubs at the meeting.All clubs in the district benefit from the exchange of ideas for serving local communities.An invitation to the Alamo District Spring Convention was given by District President Elect Pat Stevens. It will be held in Jourdanton on March 24 and highest attendance from clubs in each category will be rewarded with $50. Categories are determined by total number of members on the roster, so smaller clubs and larger clubs have an equal chance to win an award.
