H.R.C. April Meeting
By: Rusti Howard
The Home Representative Club of Collinsville held their April meeting in the beautiful home of Alberta Bonebrake. Alberta and her granddaughter, Krista Nall, served as hostess for this meeting.
After the Club Collect and the Pledge of Allegiance, Jeanie Barnes introduced two special guests, Virginia Wolfe of Collinsville and Virginias daughter, LeeAnn Slater of Connecticut joined us for our April meeting. After their introduction, the meeting began with discussions of the Collinsville High School Mother Daughter Senior Tea, which will be held on Tuesday, May 8, 2018. All graduating high school senior girls are encouraged to bring one adult female guest. Further information is given in the individual Senior Tea invitations which were handed out via the school. The Hogs And Hot Rods Fundraiser was also discussed. The fundraiser will be a raffle of many different items including Rustic Cuff bracelets, Quik Trip Gift Cards and a RolePlay Kids Chevy Silverado 12 volt Ride On Vehicle. Raffle Tickets are $1.00 a piece or 6 for $5.00. All monies raised will go towards the HRC Club programs. If you are interested in purchasing raffle tickets please see an HRC member or locate us at our booth on Main Street at the Hogs and Hot Rods event on June 9, 2018. Individuals will have many chances to win. The drawing will take place in the afternoon on June 9.
The last thing discussed was the Designer Showcase. The Designer Showcase is in its 45th year and is a Tulsa tradition. Over 20 professional designers come together and volunteer their talents to transform a home through their creativity. Each year over 6,000 people tour the home over a six week period.
The 2018 Designer Showcase House is located 2703 S. Yorktown Ave. The HRC Club volunteers each year to serve as room hostesses. This year the club volunteered on Friday, April 27, 2018. Pictures from the event are shown below.
Jeanie Barnes conducted the wonderful and informative club program. The program was on the history of HRC club books and vintage newspaper articles. Jeanies special guest, Virginia Wolfe, who was one of the original 17 members of HRC, spoke eloquently as she told us of her fascinating history. Mrs. Wolfe was a 22 year old bride moving to Wolfe Ranch from Tulsa after marrying James Wolfe. The only person they knew was Joe Morrow. Virginia got a phone call from Mrs. Anna Colpitt of Collinsville to come to a meeting to discuss organizing the Home Representative Club. Virginia is excellent with photo albums and record keeping. She is a great friend and mentor to our HRC club ladies.
After this fun and informative program, a delicious dessert was served by our wonderful hostesses, Alberta Bonebrake and Krista Nall.
