100TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF LEMON GROVE WOMEN’S CLUB MAY 12 HONORS “MOTHERS OF MOTHERS”

By Helen M. Ofield, Treasurer/Historian to the Board

Lemon Grove Historical Society

May 9, 2022 (Lemon Grove) -- Belated Mother’s Day greetings.  We hearken back to 1909 and the 1920s and 1930s when our ancestral mothers led the charge in Lemon Grove as members of the Forward Club (because they were forward-thinking), a name later changed to the Women's Club when they joined the national Federation of Women's Clubs.  By 1922 the women had built and paid for their own clubhouse. You've done the math. That clubhouse is now 100.
