50 Year Anniversary Celebration

The Westlake Garden Club celebrates 50 years this year.  The club was conceived on April 24, 1963 and one of the original members, Lillian Bialosky, is still a member today.  The big celebration will coincide with the annual fundraiser luncheon this year.  A special event requires a special setting, so the Westwood Country Club has been selected as the location of this year's luncheon.  The date is Wednesday, September 18, 2013.  Doors will open at 11 a.m.. with lunch at 12 noon and the program at 1 p.m..  We are currently in the process of securing a speaker for the program, so stay tuned for more information.  To carry through the theme of 50 years, we will have 50 raffle baskets and a silent auction and/or a 50/50 raffle.  Members and guests who have attended our luncheons in the past know that we host a great party.  Save the date and look for more information on our website and in our newsletter, Garden Scoop.  We hope you will help us celebrate a Golden 50th Anniversary in style.


WGC Installs Officers for 2013

The private room at Houlihan’s Restaurant had a festive air on December 20, 2012 as the Westlake Garden Club celebrated the Holidays with a luncheon and installation of officers for 2013.  The new board consists of:  Regina McCarthy, President; Bill Hock, 1st Vice President; Jean Smith, 2nd Vice President; Marie McCarthy, Treasurer; Sally Knurek and Marge Emblom, Recording Secretary; and Claire Evangelista, Corresponding Secretary.  Following the installation of officers and lunch, members and guests were entertained by Cleveland violinist, Mary Beth Ions, performing her solo show, “Violin: Up Close and Personal.”  In addition to being an accomplished musician, she has a wonderful, outgoing personality.  She delighted the club members and guests with holiday music, old standards and some classical pieces.  In between songs, she gave an entertaining monologue about herself, other people, and amusing events.  Some members participated in a white elephant gift exchange following the entertainment.  See photos of the luncheon the the Photo Galleries section of the website.
