Group seeks to double membership


This spring and summer major repairs are being made to the outside of the home, fixing the shakes, gutters and windows. More than $30,000 is being spent on this project, with help from a gaming grant.

Tours of the home are every Wednesday from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. from Memorial Day until Labor Day at a charge of $6 per person. Tours can be arranged at other times by calling the home and making an appointment, with a $20 minimum charge. Tour guides include Nan Bovis, Judy Burken, Doris Carstensen, Lydia Halbach, Jeannie Herrity, Deb Jacobsen, Lois Jellings, Lanie Lass, Lucy Melvin and Jeanette Petersen.

A scholarship is awarded to a high school senior every even year.

An apartment and a room in the home are rented to local pastors so someone is living in the home. From the 1930s to 1990s, 13 rooms were rented to women by the week, but in 1990 they decided to restore the second and third floors and start tours of the home on a regular basis.

All members can rent the facility for $25 per hour instead of $30 per hour that the general public pays.

If you cannot attend July 20, mail your $30 to Clinton Women’s Club, 420 Fifth Ave. South along with your birthdate, phone number, email address, and mailing address. We have a monthly newsletter September through June that tells what is going on. If you have email, we save the postage. Any questions, call Jeanette, house manager, at 249-5861.
