“This is a great club to get involved in,” La Guette said. “If you’re lonely or want to get involved and meet great new friends, call us. We’re always looking for new members and there’s so much good work that we do.”
The GFWC Coco Plum Woman’s Club began with eight members on Valentine’s Day 1912. They arrived by wagon, buggy, horseback, bicycle and foot. At that first gathering the women used empty dynamite boxes as chairs and called their group the Coco Plum Thimble Club.
They quickly got involved and those pioneer women left a legacy of contributions to cultural improvement and community service. Members of the present day group carefully and proudly preserve this history by continuing to do good while having fun.
