ROCK SPRINGS — The Woman’s Club of Rock Springs started the new season with two section meetings.
The gardening section took place on Sept. 3 at the Rock Springs Library. Master Gardner Kelly Strampe spoke about promoting pollinators on your place. Those in attendance for this informative program were Mary Lou Henderson, Charlette Stewart, Betty Lou Auld, Beverly Blackwell, Leslie Jo Gatti, Shirley Black, Jeanne Weidner and Vi Gessner.
The literature section met on Sept. 10. Members shared brief reports on what they have recently read. Weidner has read the newest C.J. Box book called “Roofs,” and Black read “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens, which has been No. 1 on many book charts. B.J. Carter read an article she has written for Crime Stoppers on human trafficking.
The group is part of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, and it was noted a Las Vegas club opened a house to help victims of human trafficking with money donated by bar owners. Clubs are working to increase awareness and prevent of domestic abuse, including human trafficking.
Marcia Volner enjoyed a book by JR Ward called “Devil’s Cut,” Leslie Jo Gatti listened to “Chosen Prey” by John Sanford, Beverly Blackwell is enjoying short stories by Agatha Christie, and Stewart continues her reading on World War II.
The highlight of literature meeting was awarding Weidner her 40-year pin and certificate. She has been an active member of the club for 40 years and is a wealth of information on the history of Woman’s Club.
