Washburn (26 May 1966)


Mrs. John Reinart, Mrs. Robert Spiegel, Mrs. Albert Lincoln, Mrs. Gene Simmons and Mrs. Kenneth Goetz went to Owen last week Thursday, where they attended Clark County Homemakers Achievement Day.  The theme was "Our Foreign Neighbors," and each club center chose a country to represent and had booths with many different things displayed, samples of foods, and many were dressed in costumes representing the country the center had.


Neillsville Center II, of which Washburn Club is a member, represented Switzerland and had many lovely things displayed and several ladies wore costumes. A very large crowd attended.


The Cannonville Ladies Aid met at the church last week Wednesday afternoon with six members in attendance. The ladies voted to donate some money for the daily vocational Bible school for supplies when it is held later this summer.


Mrs. Maybell Struebing received a letter recently from her sister, Mrs. Olive Cox Clark of Hayward, Calif., that she was visiting her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Dewayne Cox, in Texas, and making the acquaintance of their infant son, which is Mrs. Clark’s first grandchild. She made the trip to Texas by plane.  Mrs. Clark is the former Olive McPherson. She was raised in this area and attended Shortville School with her sisters, Maybell Struebing and Alma, and brother, the late Milton McPherson, many years ago.  Mr. and Mrs. Cox were married in Thailand.

Mr. and Mrs. Don Stewart, daughters, Jovey and Jana and son Jeff, and Mrs. Frank Stewart, all of Verona, spent the weekend at the Ralph Short home. They had a picnic supper at Sherwood Park Saturday in honor of Mrs. and Mrs. Stewarts’ birthdays.  Mrs. Stewart’s birthday was the 21st and Mr. Stewart’s was the 13th.  They brought their boat along and all enjoyed boat rides at Lake Arbutus Sunday morning.
