Members and guests of Potpourri Book Club gathered for their annual end-of-the-club-year picnic at Bayou DeSiard Country Club. Hostesses for the luncheon were Martha Woods and Kelley Oakley.
Each of the tables for eight was covered in white linen and centered with a lovely spring arrangement by Vee’s.
Oakley, outgoing Potpourri president, conducted a brief business meeting as part of the transition with incoming officers Kathy Patrick, president; Linda Reeves, vice president; Carol Ransom, treasurer; and Georgiann Potts, secretary.
Oakley gave information packets to the incoming group to help them move seamlessly into their new roles for 2019-2020. She also gave tokens of her appreciation to the outgoing officers who had served with her for 2018-2019.
Following the blessing, the ladies enjoyed a delightful lunch featuring fresh fruit, three salads — chicken, tuna, and shrimp — and sweet potato chips.
Enjoying this final gathering until September were guests Regina Wood, Nannette Cohen, Sally Hines, and Noreen Smith; and members Jane Conrad, Alpha Spence, Sue Nawas, Dianne Cage, Carole Kilpatrick, Nancy Inabnett, Carol Ransom, Martha Woods, Kelley Oakley, Allison Mead, Kathy Hart, Barbara Cattar, Sharon Henry, LaVerne Bodron, Pat Blanchard, Nancy Staab, Judy Worthen, Adele Ransom, Georgiann Potts, Stephanie Abell, Linda Reeves, Nelly Elkins, and Joy Loomis.
