Challenged to make the club strong and represent it effectively in the community, the officers of the Democratic Women’s Club of Indian River County were installed during the club’s December lunch meeting. The installation was held at the Grand Harbor clubhouse.
Past president Linda MacDonald conducted the ceremony and thanked the outgoing board members for increasing the club membership, raising scholarship funds and making the DWC a force in the county.
Installed were Lanie Frame, president; Betty Bourg, vice president and chair of membership; Rayma Kreider, treasurer; Pat O’Hara, recording secretary; Claudette Pelletier, corresponding secretary; and Linda Levine, Democratic Executive Committee liaison.
“I am … grateful to those of you who have, are or will work on programs, projects, committees or in other capacities,” Frame told the group. “This DWC certainly wouldn’t be a strong and energetic Democratic force if not for its great members.”
The DWC of Indian River County was incorporated in 1972 and is the largest of the 53 clubs in Florida with 191 members. President Frame was also recently named chair of Region 11 of the Democratic Women’s Club of Florida.
In addition to the installation, the December luncheon was the club’s annual holiday celebration. The festivities included a raffle that raised $500 for a deserving area family. The family recently lost its home and vehicle in a fire.
The club meetings are held each second Saturday of the month, except July and August.
