The ladies of the Twentieth Century Club of Garrettsville met in DiCiello’s in Ravenna . Since the theme for the year had been Hometown Treasures, the cookie favors on the tables were in the shapes of locomotives ( Referencing the Last Great Train Robbery, which took place in Garrettsville) and cut-out Ohio shapes with a red NEO heart (Garrettsville, of course). Twenty-one members and guests were in attendance.
Entertainment for the evening was provided by Dr. Steve Howell, Language Arts teacher at James A. Garfield High School, who brought his guitars and his talent to brighten the evening. He chose to demonstrate the fact that he was not a MoTown-type singer with selections about “Superstition”, 3 Broken Windows, a “Plain Brown Pony” on a carousel, the connection between love and spray paint, and a commemoration of Nashville’s 16th Avenue…crowd-pleasers all.
The event ended with an installation of officers for the coming year. Twenty sixteen president Karen Miller passed her gavel and responsibilities to incoming president, Leah Schultz, vice president Nasreen Kitko to Bonnie Oliver, secretary Jane Hill (in absentia) to Karen Ziarko, treasurer Jane Bell retained her office; historian Patricia Amor and publicist Iva Walker did likewise. Yellow roses were presented to outgoing officers, as were tokens of appreciation from departing president, Karen Miller, to officers and committee members. Pictures were taken.
The absent—Jane Hill, Jan Boehm– were remembered and members were reminded of the next meeting, which will be the Summer Get Together in August.
