PRESIDENT’S MESSSAGE... by Betsy Prinz
The benefits of membership are many; those of you who completed our membership survey last fall
listed the benefits you felt to be of the most value: warm and inviting club rooms, superlative staff,
wonderful food, intriguing programs, and entertaining events. And reciprocal clubs.
Most of these are examples of what we think of as basics at our Club, such as dining and gracious
service.
But dining wasn’t always a “basic”; it was not introduced until 1922. The Club quickly established
a reputation of fine dining and excellent service due to the first cooks, Nellie Ward and Anna
Hackbarth. Their recipes of fish pudding and maple mousse were favorites. But you had to “clean
your plate” at the Club—no such thing as a doggy bag was countenanced!
Our reciprocal clubs, however, are a more recent benefit to Club members. We currently have over 75
reciprocals, both national and international. And dining or lodging at a reciprocal club is considered a significant benefit for
today’s members. Our survey indicated that more than 60 members have taken advantage of and greatly enjoyed their visits to
more than 22 different clubs as near as West Bend or as distant as New Zealand.
These clubs can offer you the same warm, personal attention that you receive at the WCW. Consider taking advantage of this
unique benefit on your next trip.
A roster of reciprocal clubs is in your Club directory along with information about arranging to visit one. The office staff is
happy to make all of these necessary arrangements. Happy traveling!

From the Treasurer
by Carole Montgomery, Treasurer
I would like to thank each and every member who continues the annual commitment for membership at the Woman’s
Club of Wisconsin. Thank you for encouraging previous members to return and for inviting Milwaukee newcomers
to visit and consider joining us. Members are the lifeblood of the working committees, friendships, events, activities,
programs, and community outreach commitments of the Club. Each one of you matters.
The Club budget is primarily based on and dependent on three things: the number of dues-paying members as of
March 1, a conservative estimate of the momentum of new members, and Valerie’s experienced estimate of the
anticipated revenue from confirmed event bookings. For the past several years, the Board of Directors has accepted
resignations as effective at the end of the new fiscal year if received after the budget is developed. With our member
numbers this year and with the number of confirmed bookings for events next year, we have no increase in dues for the
fourth year. We have a balanced budget. That is the really good news. However, we do have a tight budget. We are not
yet building enough financial reserve in order to solidify the ongoing strength of our wonderful Club. Yet, we do have
good plans and optimism. Thanks again.

Conveniently located within easy walking distance of three Metro stops, the
club is a short walk from the White House. Rich in history, the club’s first
president was William Taft, later president of the United States.
We didn’t have time to take advantage of the athletic facilities or the
swimming pool, but a quick look assured us they were first-rate. We ate
breakfast daily and one dinner at the club and found the cuisine and service
to be outstanding, certainly the quality that we expect at our own club.
Beautifully appointed common rooms, including a magnificent library and
cozy den, offered us a choice of places to enjoy a drink, read, and relax in
between sightseeing excursions.
We booked one of the newly remodeled sleeping rooms, which have new
bathrooms and lovely furniture.

The club does charge a service fee if you use a credit card. We found the

Join us for our 2nd Annual Summer Soiree and Open House. The Milwaukee Children’s Choir will entertain WCW

summer wines - to say nothing of the opportunity to win a fabulous prize!
Activities and events will be highlighted and, of course, our cuisine will be splendidly displayed and taste even better.
Milwaukee Children’s Choir is a premier youth choir and serves children ages 4-18. The choral music program is an
audition-based program and serves children during the school day at two Milwaukee Public Schools and after school at two
City of Milwaukee public schools through its grant-funded Harmony Program.
The Club will look its best, will showcase our activities and events, will offer our splendid mouth-watering cuisine, and to

WCW 140th Challenge
by Lydia Cooley
The 140th is more than a number of candles on an anniversary
cake. It also represents the many years and diverse ways we
have served our members and our community. Community
Outreach challenges our talented and creative members to
consider how we might quantify this anniversary as we go
about our daily club lives in the year ahead. In some cases, we
are confident that 140 will be a multiplier rather than a target.
We offer just a few suggestions to get the challenge started but
welcome many more suggestions:
This year’s Showhouse is located
on Oconomowoc Lake at 3943
North Sawyer Road. It will be open from Saturday,
June 4 through Sunday, June 19.
To volunteer to be a docent from 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m., email Therese Burkhart at [email protected]
To volunteer to work in the boutique at the showhouse on
Saturday, June 4 from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., email Joan
Bruce at [email protected]
You may also tour the Showhouse before or after your shift.
* How many hands of bridge might be played at our
tables each year? Might these bridge players be
willing to contribute 140 decks of cards to share
with seniors or veterans?
* How many floral arrangements might we donate to
seniors or to others needing a bright spot in their
day?
* How many hats might the knitters make for little
babies?
* When we collect items such as peanut butter, school
collections, layette items, and toiletries, how many
times can we achieve 140 as the number collected?
* Might the book clubs read 140 books in a year or be
willing to donate 140 books for other readers?
* How many grant applicants do Grant Allocation
Members really review? How many attend this
celebratory luncheon?
* How many service hours do we accomplish on an
annual basis?
* Might we be able to gather 140 members for an
anniversary event or two this year?
We ask you to join the fun as we look at ourselves from inside
out, making some tally marks as we go. At the end of this
anniversary year, let us see how we measure up as an active
and vital organization.

12:30 p.m. lunch/discussion on the third Thursday of the
month
The food is always outstanding, the discussion is always
lively, and all Club members are invited.
Thursday, May 19, Ann Hirst will lead
a discussion of selected short stories by
the nineteenth-century French writer Guy
de Maupassant. Widely regarded as a
master of the short story form and one
of the fathers of the modern short story,
Maupassant wrote some 300 stories. As
a naturalistic writer, he is admired as a
keen observer and psychologist of human
nature and a brilliant stylist.
We will discuss “Boule de Suif,” “Mademoiselle Fifi,”
“The Diamond Necklace,” “The Trip of the Horla,” “The
False Gems,” and “A Country Excursion.” All are available
in English on the internet, for example at https://ebooks.
adelaide.edu.au/m/maupassant/guy/m45s/ The English
translation of story titles may vary on other websites.
Thursday, June 16, Kathy Grogan will help us explore
The Waste Land by T.S Eliot (1922). This work, considered
Eliot’s masterpiece, is widely regarded as one of the most
important poems of the 20th century, and a central text in
Modernist poetry. The 435-line poem begins with the often
quoted:
April is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

Wednesday, June 8: The Rise of Women in the last 140
years During its past 140 years, the Woman’s Club has
been the scene for a wide variety of events mirroring the
growing freedom and power of the women in the United
States and Europe. As educated women moved outside the
home and into the wider world, they established broader
social networks and more varied activities. We look at these
changes as artists have illustrated them.
Wednesday, June 22: In connection with the Woman’s
Club of Wisconsin coming tour to the Basque regions of
France and Spain, we look at some art of this area, focusing
mainly on the work of Picasso in the region and the new
museum in Bilbao.

The Basque Country: France and Spain
September 14 – 23, 2016

scenery, and a strong tendency toward an identity
independent from France and Spain. On this trip we
will stay three nights in Biarritz (France), two nights
in San Sebastian (Spain), and three nights in Bilbao
(Spain). Some of the highlights include:
- Biarritz and Bayonne with visits to an
aquarium, a regional market, and a guided
tour of Basque Museum

the Basque villages and a visit to the Villa
Arnaga Museum

Beginning Mah Jongg
Winds! Bams! Dragons! Learn an
ancient game with a modern twist.
Mah Jongg has been a popular game
in America since the 1920’s. (Note:
This is NOT merely matching tiles,
a game sometimes erroneously called Mah Jongg on the
Internet.) Combining both luck and skill, you will find
Mah Jongg to be a friendly, fun, and fascinating game
for men and women of all ages. Although this game of
Chinese tiles is usually played by 4 people, the play is
individual and partners are not needed. Groups of “Mahj”
friends play regularly for years - come and see why so many
people have enjoyed the game for such a long time! YOU
TOO will be able to join in the fun after these classes!

The Language of Flowers
by Ann Hirst
Friday, May 17
11:30 a.m. social
12:00 p.m. lunch, lecture, and book signing
Mary Ellen Mueller will talk to us
about the symbolic meaning attached
to flowers and their colors. The use of
flowers to convey messages have been
used since ancient times. The
Victorian Era began the publication of
“flower dictionaries,” which brought
the romantic and symbolic interest in
the meaning of flowers to the entire
world.
While studying art in Florence, Italy,
Mary Ellen pursued her interest in
making detailed nature etchings and architectural drawings.
Her inspiration for her art work includes flowers, fish, and
animals. She also creates precise and beautiful etchings of
national and international landmarks such as the Leaning
Tower of Pisa, along with commissions for private homes
and businesses.

Williamsburg garden, with spaciously balanced rectangular
beds surrounded by hedges; a central walkway leads to the
focal point of a small pergola covered with climbing roses
and on to a sundial at the far end. A brick garden wall
separates the less formal upper patio, including an herb
garden of knot design, from the lower, and formal garden
beds.
Mary Ellen will be selling and signing her new hardcover
book of flower illustrations and texts about the language of
flowers. Her book is entitled A is for Amaryllis. The cost of
the book is $30.
Roses are a highlight of the upper and lower gardens, with
many David Austin rose bushes. The front circle has a
quadrant design, with a total of 53 hybrid tea roses and
floribunda roses. The colors of the roses change from red at
the periphery to dark and then light pink, with yellow pinktipped Peace roses at the center.
All WCW members and guests are welcome.
