The San Saba Garden Club held its annual Christmas meeting and ornament exchange at the home of the group’s president, Ann McElroy, on December 6.The entertainment committee spent the previous day turning the beautiful ranch home of the McElroy’s into a winter wonderland of opulent Christmas décor and table settings. Guests were welcomed on the chilly morning with a champagne flute of sparkling cider as a prelude to the elegant brunch that was to come. Committee members included some of the finest cooks in San Saba—Jane Randolph, Ella Burton-Pavich, Anna Wilson and Gail Bruner.Ann took the occasion to reflect over some of the club’s past accomplishments since taking the helm of the Garden Club in September with its aptly named Launching Our Legacy theme for the current year. The conversation quickly turned to the upcoming Christmas Home Tour and the exciting civic projects the club will be helping with in the new year, especially the LCRA Nature Park butterfly garden and the landscaping project at the Senior Center. Honorary member, Carolyn McDowell, spoke about the new Master Gardening class which the club will help establish. The classes will be open to the general public.The club formed a new Youth Programs committee in September and its chair, Debbie Shahan, was excited to announce that the Garden Club would be teaming with the floral design class at the High School to showcase student design projects at the annual Christmas Tour of Homes.Ann welcomed and thanked the following visitors in attendance: Celia Bell, Kathleen Hawkins, Sharon Conyers, Louise Oswald, Jimma Byrd, Karen Johnson and Linda Mixon. The San Saba Garden Club holds monthly meetings at the historic clubhouse at Mill Pond Park on the first Tuesdays of the month at 11 a.m. The January 3 program will be a slide show presentation by Cathy Ledbetter on the historic homes and gardens of San Saba.
