The installation took place at the June meeting in the historic Clubhouse.

A highlight of the installation was when outgoing President, Mavis Hansen, passed the gavel; engraved with a 1926 date, to new Club President, Liz Calvert. Hansen believes the gavel has been in continuous use for over 98 years.

The Woman’s Club, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization was founded in 1899 and has held regularly meetings and events in their historic Clubhouse since it was built in 1913. The newly installed group will lead the Club as it continues its long history of charitable and service activities aimed at enhancing the lives of those in need.

Incoming President, Liz Calvert, announced that her theme will be “Building Community: Tradition meets today.” By that, Calvert intends “The Woman’s Club exists to support the community we live in. In addition, we need to continue to build a sense of community internally. We have many members who have been involved in our service projects and events for many years. But at the same time, a large number of our members are new to the club. Currently, we have more than 112 members. There are more members who have joined recently, than members who have been active for years. This can be an exciting challenge. The members can learn from each other as they work together. In addition, our clubhouse is an asset not only to the club, but also to our community. We need to protect the physical integrity of the aging, historical building, which has been functioning as an asset to the community for almost a century. One of our current challenges is to work together to preserve the clubhouse, and to continue the generous intentions of the many members who have served our community from the walls of this building for many generations.”
