May 31st in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1935, the Santa Ana Register reported that the Woman’s Club of Seal Beach had installed a new set of officers at a dish luncheon where Mrs. J. H. McGinnis and Mrs. C. C. Bonebrake were guests of honor. The committee in charge of the luncheon and officer installation was a roster of past club presidents ( and some familiar names elsewhere in Seal Beach history): retiring club president Wilma Sisk, Mary Taylor, Bernice Johnson, and Jessie Reed.

The new officers were Anna Collier as president, Dagmar Schmidt as first vice president,  Wilma Sisk as second vice president,  Bernice Johnson as recording secretary, Andrea Mecham as responding secretary, Grace Haskell as treasurer, Mrs. Monte Howard as historian, and Jessie Reed as parliamentarian.

      Thanks for replying, Bob. This is why I try so hard to include the names I find in the research. You wouldn’t happen to have any photos of those ladies, would you?
