Community Club forms in Bridgewater

16 years ago

   Pat Lenentine has recently organized the Bridgewater Community Club. The cub’s goals are to promote friendship among women of all ages and to undertake projects that improve the community.

    Pat chairs the group while also acting as secretary. Eva Prest is the treasurer. Other members include Marie Hanson, Terri Brewer, Edwena Whited, Tony Tweedie, Cheryl Porter, Diane Clough, Irene Yerxa, Shirley Kilcollins, Rachel Whited and Dottie Wheeler. The group meets monthly and membership dues are one dollar a month.
The Community Club’s summer project is to beautify the town by planting flowering plants in several high-visibility locations. In order to raise funds to purchase plants for this project, the group will hold a garage and food sale on Saturday, May 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Bridgewater Civic Building.
Anyone wishing  to donate items for the garage sale can do so on Saturday, April 28 or Saturday, May 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the civic building. Unfortunately, donations of clothing cannot be accepted. Donations of food will be accepted the day of the sale.
All interested women are encouraged to attend the club’s next meeting on Thursday, April 26, ay 7 p.m. at the home of Pat Lenentine, 386 Main Street, Bridgewater. For more information, contact Pat Lenentine at 429-9444.

Mars Hill queens
The Little Miss Mars Hill and Miss Greater Mars Hill pageants were held on Saturday, April 7, at Fort Street School. This year’s participation was low due to fewer students in the prospective queens’ age groups, with four young ladies vying for two titles.
The Little Miss contestants were all delightful to watch as they danced their way into the audience’s hearts.
Kelsey Dominique was crowned Little Miss Mars Hill. She clog danced to “At The Hop” as her talent. She is the daughter of Steve and Cassandra Dominique.
Haley Rowe was named first runner up. She danced to “Under The Sea” and is the daughter of Tori Guiggey and Jonas Rowe.
