Modern Mothers Review Activities

by Mrs. Edward Wright

The club was organized November 27, 1947, with five members planning to increase the membership to 25. The membership was limited to mothers of pre-school children.

The purpose and motto of the club is "Better Mothers and Better Children". There was a program committee for each meeting and they were to present an educational program pertaining to pre-school children as interesting articles or talks by child specialists.

The club gave spring picnics for the children and a Christmas party. In 1950, the club had as the yearly project a donation to the orphanage, "Abbot House", at Mitchell, South Dakota. We donate to the Red Cross and other organizations. In January, 1950, a box of toys was prepared and sent to the children of Europe and we have also had booths at the Jamborees and March of Dimes drives. The club also sponsors birthday showers as well as a program of "Get Well" gift presentations.

During the last year or so we have dropped most of the business portion of the meetings and have been devoting the time to a social evening of cards and refreshments.
