Belle T. (Mrs. J. B.) Hubbard Administration 1944-1946

While Hubbard was in office as President of the Woman’s Monday Club:

  • Rounding out almost half a century of organization, Woman’s Monday Clubmother of clubs in South Texascelebrated its 48th anniversary yesterday afternoon with a traditional Valentine party.  The meeting was held at the old G. R. Scott home, Broadway and Kenney Streets, with Mrs. Scott, founder, as hostess.

  • Mrs. R. G. Terrell led an entertainment feature on “Frills and Fancies.”  She conducted a “Who Is?” quiz, using the names of club members in apt suggestions, followed by an original tribute to Mrs. Scott, known to clubwomen over the state as “The Admiral.”

  • Mrs. Scott responded with a Valentine message sent her by a Fifth District club member, Mrs. A. J. House of Yoakum.  She also read a toast, “What Are the Wild Waves Saving on Corpus Christi Bay?” first given 40 years ago. 

  • A social hour followed with Mrs. B. W. Klipstein, Mrs. J. B. Hubbard, club president, and Mrs. E. W. Cumings presiding at the refreshment table.  A Valentine cake was decorated with red and white frosting, with the words “1897 to 1945.”  Cupids and red and white carnations centered the lace-covered table.

  • Assisting in serving were Mrs. O. T. Blasingame, Mrs. O. C. Hamlin, and Miss Katherine Redmond.

  • Guests of the club were Mrs. Maurice Parson, Mrs. George West Diehl, Mrs. Eldon Hornish, Mrs. Elizabeth Kennedy and Mrs. Dick Schendel.
