Centreville Book Club Holds January Meeting The ladies of the Book Club in Centreville met in the sunlit home of Mrs. Nancy Van Cleave. Spring tulips greeted our senses, and Mrs. Ginny Randall offered us a choice of quintessential King Cake A short business meeting was conducted prior to the program, which included a gracious thank you note from Mrs. Ankey Ulmer, on behalf of Mayor Larry Lee and his town board, for initi- ating the repair and replace- ment of angels and lights for the Christmas ddcor of our Centreville Main Street. As speaker for our meet- ing, Mrs. Susan McKey, be- gan her program from George Bush's early Novem- ber book release, Decision Points. His memoirs of eight years in the presidential of- rice appealed to Susan from an emotional viewpoint, fo- cusing on the familiar and difficult decisions he had to make from heart and gut. His comforter was quilted with patches of prayer and passion, certainly stitched with good ol' Texas humor, and frayed with the horror of 9/11, and the botched Louisiana leadership sur- rounding before and in the aftermath of Katrina. As always, we enjoyed the program and cama- raderie. There was a promise of spring in the day, and it should be more evident when we meet again in Feb- ruary! -- Club Reporter Centreville Bridge Club Meets At Carr Home The Centreville Bridge Club met in the home of Mrs. James G. Carr. She served her German Choco- late cake, for which she is well-known. The cards were uneventful in some hands and very event- ful in others. Ankey Ulmer won the high score with C.J. Kreuger of Baton Rouge win- ning second. Bingo was won by Karen McCartney. Kay Stone of Clinton, Louisiana, joined the group for an aiternoon of fun. -- Club Rep(zter T J Mac Enterprises "One Business, Many Solutions" 175 Hwy. 24E.
