D. POEM IN HONOR OF WC'S 80th ANNIVERSARY
By Linda McGinty
T’was back in 1941
A group of twenty-five
Began our council which we know
At 80 still does thrive.
Throughout the years we’ve grown to be
More vital and diverse.
Our tasks have grown from serving tea
To adding to the “purse.”
The CMA does benefit
From what we give to it.
It’s time and our donations that
Do keep the place quite fit!
We volunteer in many roles;
We staff the info desk;
We’ve worked with teens, donated funds,
And even surveyed guests.
We’ve planned events—those gala ones,
Arranged bouquets each week,
Sought members to increase our fold
And more each year we seek.
Our strengths do lie in many fields;
Our talents do prevail.
We’ve helped create some lanterns and
Prepared invites to mail.
While volunteering is a must,
We like our perks as well.
We love our lectures, tours and trips;
Our luncheons too are swell.
So here today let’s celebrate
Our his’try and our pride.
Enjoy your lunch with Council friends
And think of what a ride
The Womens Council has endured
And may it long abide!
~ Linda McGinty—2021 ~
