Welcome

FOREMOTHERS LUNCHEON:

Our Foremothers Luncheon offers a chance to celebrate the present and honor our past. Historian Myrna Overstreet challenged us to listen to the words of the first president, Mrs. Baird: “We do not mean to let a year go by without doing at least one good thing for our city.” Our foremothers founded the Everett Public Library, and today a budget crisis in the city has necessitated a cut in funding that includes the library cutting back Bookmobile services and staff hours at its two locations. Myrna asked us to think about what we as a 300-member strong Club are leaving as our heritage.

All twenty-six of our 50-year members and two new 25-year members, Marjorie Bissell from History and Katherine Wilson from Genealogy, were recognized. Thanks to the hostessing artistry of Genealogy, a lovely table was set and a lucky member at each table took home an elegant bouquet.

The voice of Washington State Poet Laureate Elizabeth Austen kept us spellbound with the words of other poets as well as her own. She focuses in her writing on women’s issues, on courage, on searching for spirituality and she read from her latest collected works, Every Dress A Decision. She too challenged us, this time to consider a book of poetry as a discussion pick at our meetings. You can find her book recommendations here: http://wapoetlaureate.org/book-recommendations/. Another good resource for poetry recommendations is A Poet At Your Table: An Unique Offering for NW Book Groups: https://www.facebook.com/APoetAtYourTable.
