Town and Country Club of Wellington turns 58


On Oct. 2, Town and Country Club of Wellington will celebrate its 58th year of entertainment.

The group meets on the first Monday of each month, October through May at the Elms community room, with most meetings beginning at 7 p.m. Members enjoy a variety of programs followed by light refreshments.

Town and Country Club has open enrollment for any woman in Lorain County who would like an evening of entertainment, education, and fellowship. The only requirement besides dues is to help with devotions or refreshments once a season.

The October meeting will be at 6 p.m. at the Lorain County Metro Park on Jones Road. Supper will be served, followed by a talk by meteorologist Jeff Tanchak of WOIO Cleveland 19 News.

Other programs for the coming season include Becky Burkhardt’s harp music featuring Scottish and Irish tunes at the November meeting, where donations of canned goods for Well-Help will be accepted. Magician Casey Lewis will perform in December. Vicki Dunn returns in February with a Valentine’s craft. March is Women’s History month, and Lucy Stone will be portrayed by Diane Stanley; Stone was an 1847 graduate of Oberlin College and an anti-slavery advocate. For the April program, the speaker will be Mari Beth Taylor on her animal rescue facility. She will show some of the animals that she has helped to rescue.

Fees for membership in Town and Country are due by the Oct. 2 meeting. Dues are $20 for the season, which covers all of the program costs. Also for the October meeting, the dinner will be $12 per person. You may take a guest to any meeting for the fee of $3 per meeting or $12 for the October meal.
