Welcome to Charlie and Lana's in San Benito, Texas
(Please note: Placing the cursor over a picture gives you some info about it (works for most browsers).)
On September 20, approximately 40 members met on a rainy Saturday afternoon at the country home of
Charlie and Lana Vieh near San Benito . Appropriately for the weather, our hosts served chicken
gumbo along with red beans and brown rice. Members brought their usual amazing array of salads,
side dishes, and desserts. Because of the weather tables were even set up in the bedrooms so
everyone was able to enjoy the delicious lunch inside. After the meal, a brief business meeting
was conducted by president Jon Watson.
The on again-off again rain showers did not deter folks from touring the extensive grounds and
inspecting the large number of palms and other tropicals. After much visiting and discussion
of palms, members began their journeys home about four o’clock. The Viehs always provide an
enjoyable meeting venue.
Our next meeting will be hosted by Sarah Morlang in Garden Ridge just outside San Antonio on October 18.
Hope to see you there!
Look forward to seeing you at one of the up coming meetings.
