The Woman’s Club, which annually holds a birthday party for those residents who are 90+, is seeking names, so those residents can be invited to the celebration.
In 2021, a hybrid celebration was held, and members delivered a gift to every nonagenarian or older who responded. June Capp, who is now 108 (as of May), was crowned the oldest female and George Coleman, now 97, was dubbed “King George.”
Woman’s Club Communication Chair Kat Holland said, “Help us get the word out, so we can collect as many names as possible. We have put a notice on our website https://www.theppwc.org/90-birthday, so that individuals can leave information by completing an online form.”
Woman’s Club members are hoping that family members and caretakers can help.
The Woman’s Club, which began as the Pacific Palisades Woman’s forum in 1925, is the oldest surviving organization in town. Its motto “Let Something Good Be Said.” Annually, the club make grants to local nonprofits, and recently gave away $10,000.
One of the fundraisers this year will be a town-wide rummage sale, which will be held on Saturday, October 1. Club President Jennifer Jones-Church said they have begun to collect objects and are looking for items in good condition. If a resident would like to know more or has questions, email Jones-Church at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The events calendar on our website will be updated in the next week or so with upcoming drop off dates,” she said.
