The Suffield Woman’s Club (SWC) held their Annual Luncheon and Installation of Officers Meeting on May 14, at Suffield by the River. The meeting served to recognize two club members, install the newest club officers, and allow this year’s members to reconvene one last time before dismissing for the summer.
This year, the Suffield Woman’s Club recognized Vicki Markowski and Norann Coggins for forty years of service. Vicki and Norann were each awarded a 24-karat gold-plated pineapple ornament (the Club’s symbol) and a Certificate of Appreciation for their dedication to serving the Suffield community since 1979.
The installation of officers to serve for the 2019—2020 club year were for the positions of treasurer, secretary, vice president, and president. Ann Woodbury, who served as last year’s Fundraising Chair and has been a member of the club since 2012, will serve as the next Treasurer. Diane O’Grady, who has been a club member since 2010 and served as last year’s Recording Secretary, will continue to do so this coming year. Dian Friedman, who served as last year’s Programs Chair and has been a club member since 1993, will serve as the next Vice President. Lisa Pepe, who has been a club member since 2010 and has served as Club President for the past six years, will continue to do so this coming year.
Committees and their respective chairman for the upcoming club year are still to be determined. The Suffield Woman’s Club will reconvene after the summer for the Annual Picnic at Bazin N. Bruce Memorial Park on September 10.
