Jessica Fauber, a clarinetist and student of Greenbrier East High School, played a solo for the pro- gram and was accompanied by Frances Eskridge. The Marlinton and Seneca Woodlands Woman's Clubs con- ducted a joint meeting April 24 to view the satellite-relayed program from Washington, D. C., celebrating the GFWC's centennial. According to Ruth Morgan, the GFWC began in 1890 when 63 women from 18 states gathered in New York City to form a federation with the motto "Unity in Diversity." The motto expressed the theme of women from diverse backgrounds and locations "pioneering" together as volunteers in their communities, states, and nation. "Facing chal- lenges to their right to meet and work together, or even to stand at a podium and speak," Mrs Morgan wrote, "today this women's volunteer movement is credited with signifi- cant achievements and triumphs. These include being in the forefront of initiating responsiveness to com- munity needs and, together as member clubs, accomplishments in education, establishing public librar- ies, support of food and drug regula- tions, child labor laws, conservation, beautification, and much more." The Marlinton Woman's Club or- ganized with eight members in 1917 as "The Woman's Literary Club of Martinton." Mrs P. A. George of Ronceverte presided at the organ- izational meeting. For many years membership was limited to 25, and meetings were held in members' homes. Today the club has 32 members. iGNATURE Ir" PREMIUM SLEEP SOFA OUR TOP OF THE LINE SLEEP SOFA GIVES YOU THE IJLTIMATE IN SEATING AND SLEEPING PLEASURE! r----.~.
