January Program Rocks!

The January program, Wonderful World of Herbs, was a great success. Five tables were set up in the meeting area and five different aspects of creative uses of herbs were demonstrated.  

Those attending chose one of the tables and enjoyed a twelve-minute demonstration about the topics, including hands-on activities and food samples made with herbs. After each presentation, the groups rotated to the next table until all five had been visited. Each table had approximately eight to fifteen members in each visiting group, and everyone expressed much enthusiasm for the format, which was designed by Vice President for Programs Lorraine Jennings.

Mary and Veronica discuss winter herbs, and South Texas is blessed with a number of options.
