Minerva's Entra Nous Club held its April meeting at the home of Ruth Whiteleather Orrell with Carol Thomas as co-hostess. Ruth offered prayer followed by a delicious luncheon beautifully served at tables reflective of the return of springtime in Ohio.
Carol Thomas introduced Kimberly Kenney, curator of the McKinley museum in Canton, who presented a very interesting program on Ladies Fashions from 1750 to the present time. Ms. Kenney, who is originally from New York, has written six books about Canton and is working on a seventh that will document foods over the past 200 years entitled "The American Palate".
President Sarah called the business meeting to order with the reading of the minutes and the Treasurer's report Sarah reminded the group that the Brick Street Jazz and Art Festival will be held on May 20th. Entre Nous will once again donate $250 to this event. In addition, upon a motion by Trish Bush with a second by Nancy Tarbet the club will donate $100 to the Minerva Senior Center. Senior Center Director Jane Schrader provided the program for the March meeting.
Dinah Safron and Joan Henninger announced that the June meeting will be held at the Hart Mansion with a fashion show presented by Lingenfelter-Brill of Alliance.
Ruth Orrell reported that Entre Nous member Carol Chapman's daughter Lea will be the speaker for the Memorial Day Service at Moultrie Chapel and encouraged attendance.
Hostess for the May meeting will be Cathy Fry and Laurie McClellan.
