TAT group frolics into June

The Stars, the TAT Socialites kitchen band led by Helen Jablonski, marched into the TAT clubhouse to the music of the Saints Come Marching In and stole the hearts of 190 guests attending recently.

"June Frolics" was the theme for the luncheon and entertainment, with Ed Jablonski as master of ceremonies. He said the audience was the largest group yet at the newly opened clubhouse.

The Stars are accompanied by pianist Harriet Zimmerman, with Norien Zimmerman as vocalist.

Mrs. Jablonski opened the program by singing Summertime, backed by the kitchen band with Lorraine Raalf, Myrtle Hooey, Irene Plum, Evelyn Whitman, Alice Mroczkowski, Mary Davis, Agnes Wojciechowski, Donna Hein and Anne Miholics.

The luncheon featured a fruit cup and a cold plate of chicken salad, potato salad, a gelatin vegetable salad, a croissant and a slice of watermelon, with beverages and chocolate cake for dessert. The meal was prepared from scratch by volunteer kitchen workers Ann Adomovitz, Ruth Bryda, Jerry Davis, Margaret Gross, Dorothy Hein, Helen Jablonski, Dottie Kaufer, Rose Ladick, Irma Maile, Helen Markey, Anne Miholics, Louise Nagele and Agnes Wojciechowski.

Lee Lambert was general chairwoman, assisted by Ann Miholics as co-chairwoman.

Pauline Nejedly was in charge of publicity; Irene Plum, decorations; Hertha Schoel, servers; and Florence Franchase and Kay Marrone, special prizes.

Skits were presented by Homer Young, Marge Zemke, Tom and Helen McKenna, Ray and Pat Szewczyk and Margaret Gross.

Mrs. Lambert said the Socialites plan a luncheon and entertainment open to the public on the third Wednesday of each month.

"In order to prevent "burnout,' we are rotating the chairman," she said. "None of us are restaurant people, but we put out a tasty luncheon and plenty of it." The chairman decides on the menu and assigns volunteers their duties.

Mrs. Lambert said she did all of the buying for this affair. She planned for over 160 people. "But as the tickets began going over that mark, we even had to have more tickets made and finally cut off reservations at 190," she said.

Comment cards were placed on each table. Mrs. Lambert said 99 percent of the comments were favorable.
