California Federation of Women's Clubs
San Bernardino District
Fall Conference, Board Meeting
Hosted by the Contemporary Club of Redlands
173 S. Eureka
Pack up your cleverest craft projects you've completed this
year and join us for a wonderful day in friendship and
meeting is for all club members, so invite one and all to
come for a fun day.
Are you thinking of running for a
District Office? *Deadline for endorsements and
resumes for candidates is December 31, 2015.*
attending clubs are challenged to provide
entertainment in keeping with the theme. Think of singing or
lip-syncing to 1950's and 1960's novelty songs. Of course "MONSTER
MASH" comes to mind first, but there was the "Purple
People Eater" and any song with "girls" can be
converted to "ghouls", e.g. "Standing On the Corner,
Watching All the Ghouls Go By", and the later "My
Ghoul". or "Going to The Graveyard and We're
Going to Get Buried"--that all-time hit. Or a club
could choose to read spooky poetry, like "The Raven"
by Poe or "Little Orphan Annie" by James Whitcomb
Riley. And there's always the possibility of a silent film
interpretation of "The Phantom of the Opera" or "Frankenstein".
