Youth Connection visits Woman’s Club

Photo submitted to Times Observer Warren County Youth Connection sang a unique happy birthday song to Woman’s Club member Alice Champlin, who recently celebrated her 99th birthday.

The Monday, Dec. 3, Woman’s Club luncheon was preceded by the now highly-anticipated annual event of the Youth Connection, entertaining members and guests with their holiday show. Youth from all Warren County high schools were represented and it was noted that the group has provided its music and dance numbers for 18 years.

Carolyn Worley, president of Woman’s Club, offered appreciation to the Youth Connection as they had to improvise their program due to technical difficulties, but did a splendid job, particularly with their signature piece, “Angels Among Us.” They also did a special 99th birthday song tribute to Woman’s Club member Alice Champlin.

Rita Mancuso and Mary Weiss were hostesses for the luncheon and provided table decorations of tea lights amid gold deer statues and ornaments surrounded by fresh greens. Members introduced their guests and were told of the upcoming annual Christmas dinner on December 14 — at which time the event will conclude with the selecting of raffle winners. Reminders were given of the Zonta project to collect bras for women who have been trafficked, crutches for the Rotary Club project and need for Salvation Army Angel Tree sponsors. Ruth Barnes Shaw offered a reminder of Woman’s Club participation at the BEi Craft show on Saturday, December 8th.

The Annual Bridge Tournament and accompanying luncheons will take place for four Fridays in January for members and non-members. The dates are January 4, 11, 18 and 25. Call Club Manager Anne Higgins 723-5910 for details and to sign up. Needle Arts group will meet at Mary Weiss’ home at 1 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10.
