Modern Mothers Club Memory Book has retired to the Elmwood Public Library

For 60 years a group of Elmwood area ladies would meet regularly to spend time laughing, learning and growing into one of the most committed and compassionate clubs we have ever known. in 2015 the “Modern Mothers Club” decided it was time to call it good.  They have presented the journal of all of their meetings and activities to the Elmwood Public Library. While they were here they joked, laughed and discussed politics. I can see why it was such an important part of their lives all of those years.

If you would like to see what they were up to all those years or get some really cool ideas for dinner parties, please come have a look into their lives. It’s fascinating and I know you’ll enjoy it!

Modern Mothers
