Study Club enjoys Odessa field trip

The Modern Study Club enjoyed a field trip to Odessa recently where they toured the Ellen Noel Art Institute and the Ellen Noel Park. Joyce Morton, Arts Department chairman, who was in charge of the program, planned the outing.

The thought-quote for this meeting was "To view or not to view _ it's up to you."

At the museum members enjoyed a beetle exhibit done in large bright watercolors and shaped ceramic beetles with tiled backs. Another room held watercolor paintings by local and area artists consisting of landscapes, portraits and florals. The Institute also featured a photography exhibit of West Texas that included the towns of Saragosa and McCamey.

The group then traveled to the Ellen Noel Park downtown. There members photographed the gardens and sculptures located in the park.

The ladies enjoyed a Dutchtreat Luncheon before returning home.

Corralez ends basic training

Air Force Airman Michelle R. Corralez has graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio.

During the six weeks of training, the airman studied the Air Force mission, organization, and customs and received special training in human relations.

In addition, airmen who complete basic training earn credits toward an associate degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Corralez is the daughter of Rafael P. and Natividad R. Corralez of Pecos.

She is a 1999 graduate of Pecos High School.
