Event Chairperson Dawna Berger and Woman’s Club President Carol Huntwork introduced the evening’s entertainment, featuring Grammy-award-winning artist Ian Whitcomb and his Bungalow Boys. Old favorites were “Apple Blossom Time” and a “Shine on Harvest Moon sing-along. “Everything I play is old,” said Whitcomb, a man of many instruments. He played the banjo, ukulele and a 1920s accordion. Whitcomb is also a local, having lived in Altadena since 1979.
After a turn on the dance floor by members of both organizations, it was time for dinner with savories and sweets. A fashion show followed with Woman’s Club models wearing ensembles from each decade of the Club’s history. The 1911 founding of the Club was represented by member Lynn Roberto in a brightly plumed hat and long gown.
One hundred years later, this evening’s party marked the last of the year’s festive occasions celebrated during the Woman’s Club centennial year. Here’s to another 100 years of community service.
