The meeting was not all business though. The ladies were entertained by a Melodrama produced by member Pat Furterer. Maybe a sign of the times as small businesses struggled to survive the pandemic, this Melodrama was about a spinster daughter and her widowed mother who faced an impending foreclosure on their shop by the local bank. Of course, no spinster daughter and her mother are running into trouble with their shop in Loveland. Anyway, the ladies were duly entertained by the creative work of Pat Furterer and her cast. Here is the cast of characters (emphais on characters) also shown left to right in the photo below: Marjory Clegg, K Buckler, Pat Furterer, Maureen Donahue, Carolyn Finn, Kay Bolin, and Kathy Lorenz
Along with the outstanding entertainment, the ladies were treated to food & drink provided by the outgoing officers and board members while celebrating a Patriotic Theme.
The Loveland Woman’s Club also recognized Leah Smith as the winner of the LWC Scholarship. Leah was in attendance along wiht her mother and thanked the ladies for the scholarship award. She’ll be attending Ohio State University where she plans to major in marketing and minor in Spanish.
Anna Colletto, 2021 LHS graduate received the Viola Phillips Scholarship, but was unable to attend. She is majoring in journalism at the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri. She sent a note expressing her appreciation for the scholarship award.
Loveland Beacon thanks Nancy Downing for providing a brief summary and photos of the Loveland Woman’s Club monthly meeting.
