The June meeting of the Cedar Springs Women’s Club was full of surprises, awards and installation of officers for 2013-2014. The colors of summer greeted members and guests who attended the June meeting as tables were spread with colorful blue, yellow, pink, and white tablecloths decorated with signs of summer: sea shells, flip-flops, sand pails and shovels, and multicolored picnic napkins. The women enjoyed a wonderful catered luncheon that included chicken, shrimp, salads and ice cream sundaes.
The Cedar Springs 2013 Woman of the Year award was presented to Caroline Bartlette, by last year’s recipient, Cynthia Caldwell. Caroline was surprised to see her husband, David, and family members there to share in her celebration. Caroline has been a long time member of Women’s Club, has been an officer on the Board, and has worked on several committees including the Holiday Tea Committee.
Next, the Women’s Club 2013 Scholarship was awarded to Molly Caniff, a 2013 graduate of Cedar Springs High School. Each year the Women’s Club $1000 scholarship is presented to a Cedar Springs woman who will use the money to further her education. Molly will be attending University of Detroit Mercy to work toward a BSN in Nursing.
For the final order of business for the day, the nominations committee installed the officers of the Cedar Springs Women’s Club who remained in the same offices as last year. The following women were installed as officers for the 2013-2014 year:
President, Carolyn Davis
1st Vice President: Sue Harrison
2nd Vice President: Donna Clark
Secretary: Penny Darling
Corresponding Secretary: Sally Grayvold
Treasurer: Cindi Caldwell
Directors: Jan Hammersmith, Dorothy Bishop, Char Heim
