“Woman’s Club to Be Formed Here Tomorrow Afternoon; Mrs. Lingle Is Honor Guest, from the Feb. 1, 1917 issue of the Hickory Daily Record
Mrs. T.W. Lingle of Davidson, president of the State Federation of Women’s Clubs, arrived in Hickory today at noon and will deliver an address at the Hub Theatre tomorrow afternoon at 3 o’clock. The occasion will be the organization of the Woman’s Club of Hickory, and the public, both women and men, is invited to attend.
Mrs. Lingle, who will be the guest of Mrs. Bost, will be entertained by the ladies of Hickory at several luncheons and meetings. Mrs. Bost gave a luncheon for her at 1 o’clock this afternoon, Mrs. E.P. Reid of Lenoir likewise being an honor guest.
At 3 o’clock this afternoon Mrs. T.C. Blackburn is entertaining the Thursday Study Club , at which Mrs. Lingle is the honor guest, and tonight Mrs. J. Worth Elliott will give an informal reception in her honor. The public is invited to attend.
Tomorrow afternoon at 1 o’clock Mrs. K.C. Menzies will give a luncheon for the Traveler’s Club, when Mrs. Lingle also will be the honor guest.
The mass-meeting at the Hub will be presided over by Mrs. E.B. Cline, and Mrs. Lingle will explain the objectives of women’s clubs and the state federation. She is an unusually brilliant woman and her address will be well worth the time of the citizens of Hickory. The meeting is open to the public, and ladies behind the movement want it understood that questions related to civic betterment only will be discussed. The suffrage question will not be brought up, as some have supposed, and all persons who are interested in the welfare of this community will not be kept away by these suggestions.
