Just after noon Tuesday at the Women’s Clubhouse, the historic building was packed as the group kicked off its first luncheon and program series of the year.

Ellen Stouffer, third vice president of the club, said these are scheduled the second Tuesday of every month from September through June. She said they usually had around 55 people attending, but this time welcomed around 76.

“It’s a great response to our first luncheon this year. We’re so excited,” she said.

At the first program, they were hosting Wade Weaver and four local students. The program focused on Weaver’s school program and the writing program he ran on the radio this summer.

The cost of each luncheon for members of the Women’s Clubhouse is $10, and for non-members, it’s $11.
