Literary Club Met
WINONA LAKE – The Winona Literary Club met Wednesday.
There were 20 members present and three guests. The featured music performance was a piano and voice sing-along by Patty Beachy. Beachy is a retired LPN. Beahy led the ladies by singing and playing the piano in several modern hymns and choruses. She also gave several solos and ended with a word of encouragement and prayer.
The club has also been having a member give a 5-minute personal history as part of this year's theme, "Getting to Know You." Nancy Wuthrich spoke for a few minutes about her life and how she came to live in Warsaw. A few highlights of her talk included being a farmer's wife, adopting a couple of children, enjoying vacationing at Fort Myers beach in Florida, square dancing, traveling and going on cruises worldwide, and panning for gold.
Ana Mae Lantz gave a delightful book review of the book "On Strike for Christmas" by Sheila Roberts. Lantz told how this book was an enjoyable and light reading experience. She read a few paragraphs from the novel and explained that the story is about a community of women tired of feeling unappreciated for all the hard work they do at Christmas. So they stage a boycott that causes the men and others in their lives to take notice.
The business meeting was then conducted, with minutes read, the treasurer's report, the courtesy report and old business.
The next meeting is May 1. Jeff Grose will be the featured speaker. Grose is serving his first term as mayor of Warsaw, elected in November 2023. He previously served six terms as a Warsaw Common Councilman. He also served as a member of the Warsaw Plan Commission, Board of Public Works and Safety, Warsaw Redevelopment Commission, Warsaw Parks & Recreation Board and Oakwood Cemetery Board of Regents. He graduated from Warsaw Community High School, Northwestern University and Indiana University. He coached basketball and taught social studies at Warsaw Community High School for almost three decades, most recently serving as the department chair. He continues to teach in a part-time role at Grace College as a political science professor. Grose will be speaking to the Winona Literary Club about the city of Warsaw. Ladies from the community are welcome to attend. Text your RSVP to Carol at 574-551-7668 by April 27. Refreshments will also be served.
