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 Clubmother of clubs in South
Texascelebrated 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
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.
