WELLINGTON — A tribute of Irish songs by four area Monson Music students mesmerized guests and members of the Wellington Lions Club for the special St. Patrick’s Day performance March 15.
Summer Neufeld, Kynna Phillips, Lilyana Rodriguez and Lacy Teichroeb sang a selection of Irish tunes as soloists and ensembles under the direction of Gerald Monson. He began teaching piano in Childress in June 1976, and he gradually added guitar, ukulele, violin and vocal lessons.
Vice Boss Lion Noemi Pena welcomed the crowd at 7 p.m. in the fellowship hall of the Methodist church. Lion Lindy Thomas led the pledge to the U.S. flag and Lion Fraya Hammons led the pledge to the Texas flag. Lion Rudie Tate offered the invocation.
Lion Jeff Pastor and his wife Alice are celebrating a March anniversary, and former Sweetheart Jayla Kilgore has a March birthday.
Lions enjoyed the musical program following the Italian meal. In club business, the Lions discussed the pancake breakfast fundraiser set for 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, April 17. Both drive-thru and dine-in meals will be available.
The annual pet vaccination clinic will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 1 at Ellison Park.
