Just because we call it a card class doesn’t mean we always make cards. Once in a while, like just before Christmas when we were tired of making Christmas cards and it was too late to send them to arrive before Christmas, we come up with something different. Sharon designed a cover for post it pads and a fun Frog card.
What a beautiful weekend to be in Fredericksburg, TX!! There were 21 adults and 15 children at dinner Friday night. Hill Country Church provided the meal. In addition, members of their congregation acted as hosts making everyone feel welcome and loved. After dinner the adults listened to orientation for the weekend while the children worked off energy on the church’s great playground. There were an abundance of things to do during their stay from Movies to the Lavender Fest to Museums and Art Galleries to name a few. Since R&Rs are not structured, the guests were free to do as much or as little as they wanted.
Saturday lunch was at West End Pizza (Great pizza and great service). Later everyone met for dinner prepared by the Catholic Daughters and from conversations it sounded like everyone was having a great time. After dinner the Catholic Daughters presented a nice donation to the Wounded Warriors at Nebo Ministry.
The following people and businesses made this weekend a success: Hill Country Church, Catholic Daughters, Inn on Baron’s Creek, West End Pizza, Fritztown Cinema, Museum of the Pacific War, Visitor’s Bureau, John and Peggy Benson, Ed and Betsy Fredericks, Mike and Debbi McCurdy, WTB Chaplain Thompson.
T’is the Season. Designer and Teacher Sharon Massey had two Christmas Cards for the class to make. One was pretty simple with stockings hanging ready for Santa’s gifts. The other one made up for it with all the pieces that had to be stamped, cut, embossed and assembled. But it was worth it!! The class may have been small but we enjoyed visiting over lunch where we get to know each other better. It was Jan’s second time going to WFSC with us. She is going to be a ‘Relief Teacher’. If Sharon or Jackie are unavailable, Jan will step in. That’s really going to help!!
If you haven’t experienced the class, consider joining us. We are at WFSC the 1st & 3rd Tuesday each month with class beginning at 10 and ending with lunch 12ish.

This R&R is open to Singles, Couples and Families.
Guests arrive Friday, May 6 and can check into their lodging after 3 pm. Between 5:30 and 7 pm will be a light dinner and orientation. Since this is an R&R there are no scheduled meetings, events, etc. It’s a time to relax and “do your own thing”. Optional meals will be provided on Saturday.
Anyone interested contact the WTB Chaplain’s office.
I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. I was blessed to have one of my grandsons, his wife and three small children. Yep, GREAT grand children!! It was such a wonderful day. Later I started thinking about all the things I’m thankful for – Family, Friends, Health, it goes on and on.
Then last Tuesday when Jackie and I were at WFSC teaching card making (Jackie teaches-I assist) I realized how thankful and blessed we are that y’all (warriors, spouses, care providers, etc.) continue to come to our classes. It seems there is always someone new dropping in to join a regular or two and then up pops someone we haven’t seen in months! You all are the reason we continue to make the drive from Fredericksburg to San Antonio every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. Love those hugs and catching up and/or getting acquainted.
The cooler weather was perfect for hiking Enchanted Rock. Chaplain Ginsburg, 7 warriors and a care provider arrived at the rock early Friday morning. After a brief devotional those who were able climbed the rock while others hiked around the base of it.
Departure for lunch was delayed due to a few of the party getting lost. Eventually everyone arrived safe and sound and headed for West End Pizza in Fredericksburg.
The adventurers were joined by a wife of one of them and a couple of WWAN team members. Everyone was hungry so while they waited on their entree several ordered cheese cake. “Life is short. Eat dessert first” Then Tara, our server, brought out samples of Tiramisu complements of West End Pizza. The food was excellent, as usual. Later at the R&R dinner a couple who had been on the hike was encouraging others to go there on Saturday.
