Special to The Monitor
SEVEN POINTS–The Literary Club of Cedar Creek Lake met at The Library at Cedar Creek Lake in Seven Points Sept. 10.
Refreshments were served by hostesses chairperson Judy Crews, and members Gloria Wood, Donna Shields, Betty Corkan, Carla Jones and Pat Janow. The morning brunch was laid out buffet-style with a cheery Fall theme.
The program was delivered by Nella Phillips with a review of “My Lucky Life” by Dick Van Dyke. Phillips has spoken many times in the lake area and is a well-known orator with various clubs throughout the state. The Literary Club members were invited to sing along with Phillips in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins tunes. The book reveals many interesting facts about Dick Van Dyke, such as how he was chosen by Walt Disney to play a lead role in Mary Poppins. His highly regarded family man reputation cinched him the role of a lifetime.
The Bridge Tournament benefiting The Library at Cedar Creek Lake is set for Thursday, Oct. 24, at the Cedar Creek Lake United Methodist Church on Will White Road and Old Indian Trail, just off SH 274, in Tool.
There will be three divisions in the tournament: Rubber Division, Sanctioned Duplicate Division and Newcomers Division (new to bridge).
A hot lunch is included in the $20 fee and many prizes will be available.
The upcoming Oct. 10, program will feature former police officer Catherine Torrez speaking on safety and prevention tips from her book “Tragedy to Triumph.”
Guests are welcome.
