Junior Civic Club S FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK - by Vera Whiddon Time passes like a jet in the night -- now it is time for our last meeting of the year, when the new slate of officers will be installed with the co- vered dish supper in Fellow- ship Hall of the First Baptist. Church at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, May 13. Don't disappoint me, for I am expecting each of you to be there, long dresses and all. But, in case there is some good reason that you can't wear the long skirts, please don't let that keep you away. A full membership in attendance will be a good way to start our new year. Don't forget that youmay bring a visitor, your husband or otherwise. There is something else com- ing up soon - our state con- vention in Birmingham, June 14, 15 and 16. Let's go for one day, Tuesday the 15th, for it will be a great experience, a chance to view the botanical gardens there, and otherwise enjoy ourselves, with the brunch, tea, etc. Think ser- iously of making this trip, which will be of special interest to our club with the recognition we will get for our presence. When the telephoning committee calls, discuss it with them and say you will go. I understand that just about the whole mem- bership of the Lockhart Gar- den Club will go - and oh, what a boost it will be to have the entire membership there. Come on Club, let's do our best to have our entire mem- bership to make the trip, also. Until later.. Vera.
