ELDORADO WOMAN’S CLUB

Twelve Eldorado High School girls who applied for the Eldorado Woman’s Club scholarship were honored by the club on Tuesday May, 10th in the Fellowship Hall of First United Methodist Church. The scholarship is awarded each year to deserving girl graduates.

The girls were honored with a spaghetti lunch with salads and desserts. Each candidate gave the club her name and her future plans.

The thirteen club members also discussed plans for the upcoming year and new officers. Installation will be in September.

Also discussed was the collection of dues, writing the new yearbook, speakers, proceeds of the recent bake sale and dedication of the centennial bench. The club donated the bench in commemoration of its 100th year of service in the community.

The Woman’s Club was organized in 1920 but the commemoration was delayed by the COVID pandemic. During its 101 years, the club has been active in city beautification, youth programs and projects, honoring veterans, and establishment of the local library. Club representatives have served on committees with the building of the Memorial Building, constructing the first swimming pool, and on the committee establishing the museum, as well as many other endeavors in town.
