Mondiale, Y'all BY KATHY SHAY, Vice Charg é e de Presse AUSTIN BAILLIAGE CONFRÈRES traveled over the river and through the woods to Bee Cave, Texas, on December 12 to celebrate the holiday season at the Sonesta Bee Cave Austin hotel. Members were honored to have Grand Echanson Charlie Bennett and Bailli Provincial Bill Salomon at the event to induct the chap- ter's newest Mondiale members: Chevaliers Dennis Cross, Dick Goss, and Charlie Eppright; Dame de la Chaîne Patsy Eppright; Vice Echanson Marshall Jones; Vice Chancelier- Argentier Steve Larson; and Officier Debra Larson, who was also elevated that evening. This was the fourth Chaîne dinner crafted by Executive Chef Patrick Newman, and it was as delicious as always. Of course, as with every Mondiale event, fine wines flowed, freeing tongues and encouraging a bevy of songs that became more "cre- ative" as the evening progressed. Bailli Dennis Shay summed up the evening with his own drinking verse: In praise of wine we did sing With all the fun the holidays bring And now that we have expressed such cheer It's time to say Very Merry Mondiale and a Happy New Year!
