Ten were present for the 11:30 luncheon meeting of the Wyman Community Club on Monday, March 4, 2019 at Ainsworth Four Corners.

Present were: John Wittrig, Laura Witrrig and Amy Surber of Winfield; Frieda Finke, Billie Jo Rose, Carol Steele, Ruth Erwin, Margaret Patterson and Larry Love of Crawfordsville and Jane Kaczinski of Washington.

Carol brought several pictures of the original Wyman Community Club, which was organized in 1921 and 71 members and guests attended their 50th reunion. Over the years there were 216 members. This brought many memories back to some who were a part of the original club. Frieda Finke recalled that they met at the Wyman School and took part in many civic and community projects, helping the school when they needed things and they also had a kitchen band that entertained in the area. She says one time some of the men in the area dressed up and came as band members.

The group will meet next on Monday, April 1, 2019, at Ainsworth Four Corners at 11:30 a.m.

Fifteen members and their guests attended a date night dinner at 5 p.m. at the Frontier Restaurant in Wayland Tuesday evening, March 5, 2019.

The next meeting will be Tuesday, April 2, 2019, at 1:30 p.m., at the home of Betty Lintz. Roll call will be “Do You Like to Plant Flowers in the Spring?”
