The San Saba Co. Extension Education Clubs will host their annual May Event on Wednesday, May 7th at the First United Methodist Church, 204 W Brown. Each year the E. E. Clubs offer a varied program to enlighten and entertain the audience followed by a salad and dessert luncheon.
This year, Phyllis Poehlmann will be discussing and demonstrating how to slump and fuse glass, with special focus on how she makes fused glass mosaic crosses. A variety of items can be made by fusing glass such as jewelry, dishes, glass art, and other practical items like the Texas Flag clock shown in the picture.
Stacy Pandey, Water Conservation Coordinator for LCRA, will present a program on Water Conservation. She will discuss what LCRA is required to do in terms of conservation, how water is used in Texas, current water conservation programs and what we might expect in the future. She will then address what we can do around our home.
Also speaking will be a spy in 1860’s dress. The researcher has uncovered unique ways female spies aided the Cause during the War Between the States. Not much is said in history books about these ladies, but diaries and some federal records show heroism behind a hand fan and long eyelashes. Several artifacts will be displayed including guns and costumes.
In addition to the speakers, there will be a silent auction and a display of artistic creations completed by club members during the past year.
Registration will begin at 9:30am and the programs at 10:00. You may come for all or any part of the morning. There is no admission fee but donations will be accepted.
