Women’s club member of the year

Cedar Springs Women’s Club honored this year’s Outstanding Member of the year, Cynthia Caldwell, recognizing her talent for organization and creativity, while promoting the club.

Pictured here with her husband, Tom, daughter, Tylene Cooley, and one of her five grandchildren, Rachel Cooley, she took time from catering the club lunch Thursday, June 3 to accept her award. She also serves as the current treasurer of the club.

Cynthia’s early background included working in an office while in the 11th grade, and doing all the paperwork for six salesmen by the time she graduated as her class valedictorian.

Married after high school, her husband Tom mentioned many instances of her talent for helping others through organizing. She never accepted the verdict of the doctors after suffering a stroke years ago that she would probably not be able to work outside her home again.

Cynthia helped with the Channel 35 auction for ten years, worked 25 years for a government agency, and worked as her township’s deputy clerk for 9 years. Her last retirement was from a retail fabric store after 15 years of helping others. Not retired from volunteering, she visits the grieving, and those who are in or home from the hospital, often sharing her talent for cooking. She pre-organized items for the Women’s Club annual rummage sale, and has been known to donate not only her time, but her talents in many ways to promote the club. In the past, she graciously opened her home to the club for the annual Christmas Tea.

Cynthia is not only organized, but also talented, sharing many handmade items for the ticket raffles to benefit the club, encouraging other members to do handcrafts. The club has been the recipient of many of these donated and hand crafted items. Her talent for organizing included the Club’s Red Flannel Craft booth, and arranging for the creative items sold in the retail stores.

Her hobbies include cooking, sewing, crocheting, gardening, reading, Cedar Springs Women’s Club and helping people. As she states herself, “I try to be the type of woman that the devil says each morning “Oh, no, she’s up!”
