An annual event, The Woman’s Civic League’s May 6th luncheon was again devoted to honoring young women from PUSD Middle Schools who while facing often overwhelming family and personal struggles have managed to keep a positive outlook and have shown very impressive improvement in their grades. Always well attended with a sponsor from each of the schools presenting each girl to the League and the League in return giving each girl a Certificate of Achievement and a $100 Target Gift Card.

Board member Darlene Besocke, table decorator extraordinaire, did all the center pieces comprised of different color tote bags and uniquely designed beach towels for each girl filled with an assortment of ‘ colored pencils, adult coloring book, hair scrunches, manicure set, pocket notepad, frisbee and a little stuffed rabbit.

Thanks to League President, Billie Tone, and Education and Youth Services Chair Sandy McConnell and Ways and Means Chair Rita Elshout for making this an always well attended and heart warming event for the League to put together every year.

The purpose of the Woman’s Civic League is the advancement of civic ideals through the support of agencies providing services to women and children and the enrichment of the lives of our members through the accomplishment of common goals and development of lasting friendships.
