Moore Women's Club

The Moore Woman’s Club met at the clubhouse on Sept. 8. Gert Barta had the program. She asked Kaitlyn Weinheimer, a senior at Moore, to give her Girl’s State report. Girl’s State was held in Helena. Kaitlyn mentioned that she tried for an office in the Copper City and was appointed the City Judge. They had mock trials and she presided over them. They had fun things to go to such as the carnival and a football game. She really enjoyed going to Girl’s State and would highly recommend the junior class this year to apply to go.

On Oct. 13, Linda Barthol was program chairman and she asked our shut-in, Clara Allen, to go to Brook’s Market to eat with us and have our meeting. One of our projects this year is to cater to our shut-ins. Clara is a very special member of our Woman’s Club. Linda had purchased candies at Cabeles in Billings and our members really enjoyed them. There were very good.

They all wore their blue corduroy jackets in the 80-100 degree temperature, and their leaders made the comment; aren’t you very hot, and Mamie said they were but withstood the head somehow.
