WCC Closes Club Year

Members of the Woman’s Club of Cumberland recently gathered at the Cumberland Middle School to enjoy a luncheon prepared and served by the school’s Culinary Arts Department.

Grace was in the form of a poem composed and read by club member Marlene Martens. Following the meal, First Vice President Deanna Lacy introduced the Still Not Ready for Prime Time singers who entertained the group with some personalized original lyrics to a few old tunes.

Ways and Means Chair Juanita Urban reported that the club’s last project for this club year, a raffle, had benefitted the Cumberland County Public Library by more than $2,000. Urban produced a huge box of well shaken tickets and the drawing began. A baby quilt, handmade by Wanda Johnston, was won by Leah Oliver.
