Syringa Club has been busy, as usual, and has several projects in motion.

The 44th Annual Birthday Calendar is on sale for the holidays and it always makes a welcome gift for local friends and neighbors. The front photograph was graciously donated by member and award-winning photographer, Elaine Baker. The calendar is still a great deal at only $5; ask any member or pick one up at the Senior Center or the December 4 Crafter's Holiday Bazaar and Fund Raiser at the school.

Jamie Anderson will handle getting the brown historic marker for Syringa Club's monument to Charles Ostner. She is also getting members interested in the Library's potential "Dial-a-Story" program; several women look forward to performing books on tape.

Club members voted to donate $200 to the Food Bank. For Food Bank requests, contact Jean Ball, at 462-2457.

This Thursday, Vice-President Georgianna Goetsch will speak on the Women's Oral History Conference in Spokane, which she and others attended as part of the "Lasting Legacies" project of the Friends of the Garden Valley Library.

The club will also hear from Jayne Carlson, who is heading the GV Garden Club project for the Senior Center memorial garden.

This is a momentous occasion for the club, as members will finally hold their election for new officers. President Carol Smith will be stepping down after a long, dedicated leadership. On the ballot are: Georgianna Goetsch - President; Wendy Gardner - Vice President; Anjali Angel - Secretary; and Ione Messick - Treasurer. Nominations are quite welcome and will be taken from the floor.

The meeting will be held at the Garden Valley Senior Center and a light lunch of Soup and Salad will be available, for $4, if you would like to dine.

All women are welcome to visit or join. The Center is located at 261 S. Middle Fork Road, Crouch/Garden Valley. For information, call 462-2511 or the Center, at 462-3943.
