First Fall Meeting October 4

Hello, friends and fellow readers! Just a reminder that our first meeting of the Fall 2016 session is on Tuesday, October 4, in our usual venue – the lower level of Memorial Park Library, 1221 – 2 Street S.W. We had thought about making this a field trip, but the Glenbow Museum archives department is simply not set up to accommodate a large group, so Sue Carscallen is bringing the club’s archived material (or some of it, at least) to us. I know Sue will present an interesting and unique perspective on our club’s history.

If at all possible, please come early (1:30 pm onwards) for light refreshments and to meet new members and catch up with old friends.

Best wishes, Margaret

Calgary Women’s Literary Club Celebrates 110th Birthday!


CTV’s crew did our Calgary Women’s Literary Club proud, with Ina Sidhu’s fine report aired Tuesday.

We have some “film naturals” in our midst! Check out the interviews with Dorothy Little, Lillian Tickles, Margaret Sparkes and author Clem Martini.

Many guests joined us for this celebration, including our speaker, author Clem Martini, and representatives from the Calgary Public Library and the Glenbow Museum.

What’s a birthday party without a cake? This one was (almost) too beautiful to eat! Thanks, Doloris! As March 1st is also St. David’s Day, we were treated to Welsh Cakes from Janet Samber.
