I got some sad news this week: Faced with declining and aging membership, the South Milwaukee Women’s Club is disbanding.
Recently, I helped celebrate the club’s 100th anniversary year with this proclamation, and it shows just how significant a mark this organization has left.
From funding the city’s first Christmas tree to creating the Mary C. Nelson Arboretum to supporting our soldiers and veterans to working to improve health care in the area — and much, much more — this group leaves behind a century-long legacy of community service and charity that we still feel to this day.
This organization will be missed. Thank you for your service!
