Jazz and BBQ Dinner to Draw Community Support for Woman’s Club Renovation Project

Active in the community since 1914, the Woman’s Club of Arcadia is seeking help from the community to preserve its historic clubhouse.

President Floretta Lauber, who took office in June, says, “Now is the time to move forward and not allow deferred maintenance to cause further costly repairs and refurbishing.”

The clubhouse was built in 1930-31 after purchasing the two lots from Anita Baldwin.

There is so much history in this lovely old building. Used as a Red Cross center and U.S.O. during WWII, it was honored by the Arcadia Historical Society in April with a historical marker.

The club has been hurt by the economy, with their rentals way down. That is why we have had to ask for a helping hand from local businesses and citizens.

On August 2nd, at 5:30 p.m., the garden gates will swing open to a knock-out fund-raiser. The famous Cheryl Carter and trio will entertain you and a BBQ dinner cooked on site will please you.

Cost is only $40 for dinner and show. Send checks to Barbara Lampman, 1531 N. Santa Anita Ave., Arcadia 91006, or call Floretta Lauber at (626) 355-6945. If you can’t attend, please consider a donation. Help save history.
