Induction Dinner BY JIM RAY, Southwest Chargé de Presse Provincial Honoraire ON MARCH 18, 2018, San Antonio Bailliage members once again enjoyed the hospitality of the Argyle club under the leadership of General Manager/Maître Hôtelier Michael Vlad. Built in 1854, the Argyle was originally the head- quarters of a horse ranch. Around the turn of the twentieth cen- tury, it came under the ownership of Miss Alice O'Grady and became legendary for its fine cuisine and famous guests. In 1955, the Southwest Foundation for Research and Education (now called the Texas Biomedical Research Institute) pur- chased the Argyle and changed it to a private social club. It contin- ues to maintain the fine-dining standards and gracious hospital- ity for which it was always known. Bailli Provincial Bill Salomon inducted eight new members and welcomed seven confrères into the Mondiale. Chevaliers Guy Combs and Denis Feliers and Dames de la Chaîne Ashley Langston, Sandi Presley, and Patricia Weber were recognized with Share the Chaîne pins. The ceremony closed with Bailli Provincial Salomon awarding a Silver Star of Excellence to Vice Chancelier-Argentier Wilmer Carroll for his long-standing service to the bailliage. Following the fabulous dinner created by Executive Chef/Maître Rôtisseur Serge Devesa, a drawing took place in which the lucky winners got to take home bottles of wine.
