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.
