Many of you know, I was elected President of the local Woman’s Club in my city for this next season. Our club was founded in 1924 and a one time, 40% of the women in this city belonged to this club. Can you imagine?
The club has been shrinking for years. It’s going to take a lot of effort and every trick in the book to bring this club back from the brink of extinction and that is my job.
Last night, we had a Happy Hour meet and greet were we brought the old (elderly) members together with younger women who were interested in possibly joining the club. We had the older women talk to the new women about the club; some of these women have been in the club for decades.
One gal is not only knowledgeable but particularly eloquent and she was telling us about the club in it’s heyday. This club actually collected books and started a lending library out of one of the gal’s homes. Eventually they had 3000 books, 2 bookcases, and a table which they donated to the city to start the public library here. Can you imagine that?
She said it was at about that time, there was a shift in our society and people stopped joining. They no longer wanted to be associated with an organization and she said that this nor only impacted the Woman’s Club, but that clubs of all kinds lost membership. It’s gone downhill since.
She thinks people benefit when they band together to do something important. We going to try to foster this feeling and restore the club to it’s former prominence.
How do you feel about “joining”. What were you taught about joining a club?” Got Aquarius?
