Members of Cedar Valley Club, 1943
In 1942 the club sponsored a Red Cross Nursing Class of which twenty-one women took part.
The club furnished both money and food to the hot lunch at the Cedar Valley school
during the war years.|
All tailoring classes were attended by one of the club members and we took part in all style revues.
Fair exhibits were entered in the county fair and often had state fair entries. We also had a float in the Parade.
The club had a Community gathering at the Community Center and twice we had a club reunion to which all club members were invited.
During the last two years we have made scrap books for hospitals and this year we are going to help the children
in the mental hospital in Enid.

Our entire club learned to do etch ell work on glass, and many pretty water sets, mirrors, and dinner plate sets were made. Our club bought an etch ell set to be shared by the club. And from the enjoyment we have had from the et, I think it was money well spent.

The Cedar Valley Clubs 1953 project was to make gifts for the Home for Retarded Children, in Enid. We made stuffed toys, tea towels and sent magazines; we were given one girl to remember on special occasions. We sent her a night gown, a box of chocolates and a toilet set for Birthday and Christmas.|
We also help with the Zion Cemetery, and give going away gifts, to our boys in service, and though our club is divided between Watonga and Omega Schools, we try to help both H. Clubs.
