Meet the Ladies of the West Hamilton Koons Club

I recently spoke by telephone with Amelia Landersen and Marilyn Upchurch-Devine, the president and recording secretary of the West Hamilton Koons Club. West Hamilton is a town of approximately 37,000 about 90 minutes from San Antonio, Texas, with a local economy that is largely supported by ranching and small petroleum-related service companies.

The Koons club, which Amelia and Marilyn co-founded three and a half years ago, currently has 21 members — all women — who meet on the first Thursday of each month in the Founder’s Hall of the West Hamilton United Methodist Church to discuss and celebrate the life and art of Jeff Koons.
