Women's Clubs an Important Part of St. Charles History

It's Mother’s Day we are looking back at the St. Charles Mothers’ Club, which was one of the many Women’s clubs that were vibrant during the 20s and 30s. Founded in 1924, this active club participated in many community service projects that focused on promoting better health for children and educating mothers in childcare. This included raising money for the hospital nursery, landscaping the exterior of the Henry Rockwell Baker Memorial Community Center, and more. Ruth Ericson, Dellora Norris, and Althea Potter were some of the club’s founding members.
