A Peek at Our Past...from Archives

In 1985 Civic Club was selling Confetti eggs
for $1.00 a dozen! 2nd Vice Presidents Anita Thompson and Suzanne Decker had
an egg contest. Members made egg pledges and in April of that year Judie Cimino
turned in 25 dozen. For her efforts, she received the pictured duck. I’m struck as to
how long we do certain projects and the members who year after year work on them. 

Civic Club has a very rich history.

Pump Boys and Dinettes

Civic Club members were part of the full house that
viewed the delightful Pump Boys and Dinettes on July 15. 
We were thrilled that Artistic Director Christian Lebano
acknowledged Civic Club’s Philanthropy 
donation of the new poster frames. 

The frames light up at night and are absolutely beautiful. 
When you’re walking around town, take a look. 
Better yet, if you haven’t seen this fun production,
go see it before it closes. 

It’s been extended until August 12 so you still have time!
