Anniversary Is Observed by Club
The fourteenth of February marks the
thirty-fifth birthday anniversary of the Woman’s Monday club of this city.
This event was celebrated by the club Monday afternoon at the home of Mrs.
A. M. French. Each member brought a guest.
The spacious rooms of the home were
attractively decorated with pink carnations, ferns, and potted plants.
Mrs. Sam Rankin, first
vice-president, greeted the guests in her usual gracious manner, then called
the two charter members, Mrs. G. R. Scott and Mrs. Henry Redmond, who gave
greetings. The third charter member, Mrs. George Westervelt, who lives in
San Antonio, was unable to attend.
A delightful musical program was
then presented. The first number was an artistic dance by Miss Beverly
Bonner, talented daughter of Mrs. M. F. Bonner. She was gowned in a
beautiful pink frock trimmed with lace. Mrs. C. W. Skipper and Mrs. Louis
Carter sang “I’ll Take You Home, Kathleen” and Mrs. Lawson Libby Wagner gave
two vocal solos, “Phyliss” and “Go Lovely Rose.” T. G. Allen sang “The
Trumpeter” and “Mary Jane.” This was followed by a musical reading, “Memory
Maiden,” by Mrs. Louis Carter.
A contest, “How Many Magazines Do
You Know?” arranged by Mrs. Harry Watson, was enjoyed, prizes going to Mrs.
J. A. Hill and Miss Susie Holderby.
A delightful social hour was enjoyed
during which refreshments were served by the hostess, assisted by Mrs.
Herbert French, Mrs. W. E. Pope, Miss Mary Merle Hill, Miss Zula Hill, and
Miss Bertha Bieren.
