“July Ice Cream Social & SARS 56th Birthday Celebration”

Our July meeting is usually the best – no program, no business – just a relaxing evening with good friends, good food, and good fun.  We will celebrate our 56th Anniversary with an assortment of ice cream and a birthday cake.

We will combine all of this with a rose flea-market of sorts. We call it a “Bring & Buy” event – bring something to sell, and buy something to take home.  Items do not have to be of a rose nature, but can be any nice items, such as gifts, decorations, crafts, tools, books, etc.  What you bring should be good quality stuff.  All items will be sold as a silent auction, while you are enjoying your ice cream and cake.  The Society furnishes the cake, and members bring the ice cream – preferably homemade, but HEB’s Creamy Creations and Blue Bell are OK.  Bring money or your checkbook to purchase some real bargains.  All proceeds will go into our treasury and will be used to help defray our general operating costs.

Come to the July meeting ~ For fun, ice cream, cake, and shopping ~
                                                                                    An unbeatable combination !!

PROGRAM – AUGUST 14TH, 2017

TITLE:  “Ikebana Arrangements”, presented by Dana Huerta

Ikebana (arranging flowers) is a Japanese art of flower arrangement.  It is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together.  Ikebana puts emphasis on shape, line and form.  Ikebana employs minimalism; some arrangements consist of only a minimum number of blooms, interspersed among stalks and leaves.  It is a very interpretive art form, symbolizing heaven, earth, and man, or sun, moon and earth.  Come to learn more….

Dana Huerta enjoys designing and creating through a variety of media.  Rose arrangements and textiles are among her favorite mediums.  Dana has loved sewing and gardening her whole life.  She made her first hand-made dress in 5th grade and planted her first rose garden when she and her husband (Dr. Vincent Huerta) moved into their first house in 1989.  In 2015, Dana attended a floral arranging workshop at the National Miniature Rose Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, and was introduced to Ikebana.  She was amazed how easy it was to make an outstanding arrangement with this simple technique.  At our August meeting, she will demonstrate how to make an arrangement with an Ikebana container and 3 roses.  Following, each attendee will receive hands-on time to make their own arrangement and will take home an Ikebana container.
