Interested in history, art, current events and book reviews? The South Charleston Monday Night Club could be the group for you.
Established in 1924, the group is open to women and meets seven times a year to hear from local speakers who share information on a wide variety of topics.
“In the past, we’ve enjoyed a fashion show by a seamstress who makes Victorian dresses. She demonstrated the unique aspects of the dresses with her four sisters as live models,” said Patty Moore, president.
At another meeting, reenactors dressed as U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt and his wife, Edith, provided glimpses of the couple’s family life at the White House. One spring, members of the club presented a one-act play written in the 1930s.
“We’ve also heard a book review of a lady who walked across America in an effort to raise money for her family. And, on several occasions, we have taken European adventures with the aid of today’s visual technology and the commentary of an actual traveler,” Moore said.
As the name suggests, the club meets on Mondays. The meetings take place at 7 p.m. at Village Chic, 17 S. Chillicothe St., South Charleston. Upcoming meeting dates are Oct. 5, Nov. 8, Dec. 6 (Christmas potluck), March 6, April 3, May 1, and June 5.
Dues are $8 per year to help with speaker fees. Anyone who would like to know more about the club or join the group is welcome to attend an upcoming meeting.
