Booster Buddies collects for a cause

Barbara and M.L. McMahon offer a drive-through donation station for those who like to clean up and thrift shop bargains for those who like to collect. “We Support PN-G and Nederland Booster Clubs,” reads the card for their shop at 3417 Nederland Avenue. I had a great chat with this couple. They say they have lots of family in the area and they support both teams.

Gala for TAM 40th
At $40 a couple with dinner and drinks, The Texas Artists Museum’s 40th anniversary gala is a hot ticket. The event is from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9 at the Museum, Cultural Center Drive.
This month’s show features fall foliage from Tex Norwood. He grows Plumeria in pinks and yellows and transforms them into bright, detailed canvases. You can buy this art on notecards, too.
TAM favorite Shirley McGraw Peel is also showing a range of her talents from fruit still life works to portraits. Call 983-4881 to get to the party.

The Rev. Roberts retires
The Brandenton Herald of Florida featured retirement news of the Rev. Don Roberts, who attended school with Janis Joplin and Jimmy Johnson. Roberts and his wife, Peggy, were honored at Goodwill’s 30th anniversary tribute luncheon there and they spoke about his serving as a Methodist Minister for 48 years and retiring after 30-plus years with Goodwill Manasota. He was the chief executive officer and president and Peggy, its president of housing. She’s retiring, too.
