What is your hometown?
Hometown: Born in Atlanta, GA
What motivated you to join the Junior League of San Antonio?
Motivation to join the League: After seven years overseas as an Air Force wife, I wanted to meet new people in our new stateside city of Las Vegas, Nevada! Funny place to live – the Junior League there was small but extremely ambitious; many of the 200 members had two or three placements. We had a garage sale, a gala, a cookbook – all with a pretty small group! Provisional Assistant Trainer and Done In A Day were favorites there.
How many years were you active in the League?
Active years: 13, and a Sustainer ever since, about 26 years total.
What was your favorite placement or position in the League?
Favorite placement: After transferring to the Junior League of San Antonio, I joined in on the Ritzy Rummage Sale, and my favorite, the Sunshine Singers! Entertaining seniors all over San Antonio was very joyful, and my fellow Junior Leaguers were a wonderful, caring, and cheerful lot. We often went out socially after our performances.
Favorite vacation spot?
Favorite vacation spot: Love it all, but perhaps a Colorado ski trip is my favorite. Europe was a wonderful place to live, especially as a young tourist, exploring eastern Europe, Egypt, Russia, France, Greece, and many parts of Spain and Germany. My older daughter, Beverly, spent a college semester in Germany, and I was able to show her many of my old favorite places.
