The Arcadia Woman’s Club recently held its installation ceremony and luncheon in its historic Clubhouse on First Avenue. Members and guests enjoyed a delicious luncheon served by Cindy Aguilar, and beautiful floral teapot centerpieces created by Ann Carlton, Doris Kading, and Peggy Ulbrich.
Marilyn Daleo served as Installing Officer using a flower garden theme where each officer received a potted plant and a reference to a garden flower symbolizing the characteristics of their board responsibility. Repeating President Cheryl Alberg received beautiful roses and a watering can to symbolize nurturing the “club garden.” Officers installed for the 2018-20 term are President Cheryl Alberg, First Vice President Marilyn Daleo, Second Vice President Linda Mokler, Third Vice President Cindy Aguilar, Recording Secretary Barbara Lampman, Corresponding Secretary Joyce Platt, Financial Advisor Dianne Chapman, Senior Trustee Carol Anne Donahey, and Junior Trustee Julia Fendrick.
The Arcadia Woman’s Club has been providing service to the community for over 100 years in a variety of areas; many of which were significant to Arcadia’s growth and history. This past year the organization focused on domestic violence issues, orphaned children, books for Braille conversion, and recently held a layette shower benefiting the San Gabriel Valley Pregnancy Help Center. The club also contributed to the initial construction of Arcadia’s Vietnam War Memorial Monument in Arcadia Park and dedicated an adjacent bench. Last fall the club paid tribute to Veterans with a dinner and program with proceeds going for the installation of nighttime lighting on the monument. In May, club members were on hand when the red, white, and blue lighting illuminated the monument for the first time.
The Arcadia Woman’s Club is open to women of any age with regular meetings held at 11 a.m. on the first Wednesday of the month from October to June. Summer activities include a Beach Bingo Blast on August 1 at 5 p.m. and a mid-day Open House on Wednesday, September 5. Both events will be held at the Clubhouse, 324 S. First Ave. For information on membership or any of the club activities, contact Linda Mokler at (626) 818-7779 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Cheryl Alberg at (626) 287-2831 or email@example.com.
