The SAWC Holiday Party was held December 12 at First Place, 14 Harris Street, San Angelo, Texas. Coffee and “snacks” started at 6:30 pm. Only instead of snacks, there was a holiday spread that was quite impressive (see the picture at right). The picture shows Stan Denny, resplendent in his read coat, leading off the charge on the food. For a while, the members settled down to talking and chewing.
After sufficient attention was paid the scrumptious food, President Mattie McKee opened the floor to readings from the members. The business meeting and reading started late because, well, we couldn’t talk with our mouths full.
Each member was allowed 5-10 minutes to read from his or her recent writing. The evening’s presentations included poetry, selections from novels, excerpts from memoirs, and a poem from a collection of poem-prayers.
After the individual presentations the members and new members posed for a photo. The evening closed with best wishes for all for the holiday season and the new year. Join us in 2018 for another great year of the San Angelo Writer’s Club.
