Miltonian Woman’s Club celebrates 100 years


WEST MILTON —The Miltonian Woman’s Club of West Milton is celebrating their 100th anniversary.

The club was founded in 1923 by nine civic minded ladies to help the less fortunate in the community with clothing and quilts, according to a press release from the organization.

In the early years of the club, there were committees formed to investigate unsanitary conditions at the school, address bad behavior of some boys, and improve the lighting at the school grounds. Today, the club consists of 30 dedicated and faithful members who have lunch, a program of interest on a wide variety of subjects, and a business meeting on the first Wednesday of the month except July and August.

They continue the work of their founding members by giving to many charities and a scholarship to a senior girl. Down through the years, the club has tried to continue that legacy and is a valuable asset in the community. The West Milton Council declared the month of September to be the Miltonian Woman’s Club month and issued a proclamation.
