Norway Women’s Club meets Thursday

NORWAY — The Norway-Vulcan Women’s Club will have its annual Christmas meeting Thursday at Mike’s on Main in Norway. Special guests will be Carol Sundstrom and Gail Galotta.

Registration begins at 11:30 a.m., with the meeting at noon.

All area women are welcome. Call 906-563-9156 for a lunch reservation.

Crystal Hogan entertained the N-V Women’s Club at the Nov. 8 meeting. Introduced by Mary Jo Kelly, Hogan is retired after 38 years as a music and chorus teacher. She is also very active with the Dickinson Area  Community Chorus and served as conductor for the 52nd annual Christmas concert. She performed, accompanied by her guitar, songs from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, such as “Sentimental Journey,” “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” “Stardust” and “Side by Side.”

The Giving Tree project was discussed during the business meeting. The trees are at Northern Interstate Bank on U.S. 2 or the branch bank at Pat’s Foods, both in Norway. Each tree has envelopes with gift ideas for either a man or woman that can be donated by area residents. These gifts will be shared with someone who may be alone at Christmas. The club asks that gifts be returned to the banks no later than Friday, Dec. 14, so they can be distributed the following week in time for Christmas.
