First Valentine's Party a Hit

About 50 members and guests celebrated Valentine's with a glass of champagne or sparkling juice, a homemade cookie, and a fancy chocolate cupcake provided for the occasion by Holly Smith and Sister Suzie's Chocolates & Gifts. The Interact Club of Seguin High School came with sponsor Jack Lee to take souvenir photos. Guests sipped by candlelight, toured the Gallery, and then found bargains in the Gift Shop. We also collected dues from several new and renewing members. Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate the Gallery's first Valentine's! Click here to see a few photos.
