New CenturyClub

EAST LIVERPOOL — An Easter theme was used by hostess Mrs. Mary Fricano for the March meeting of the New Century Club held at Adrian’s Restaurant. Tables were decorated with bright colored Easter eggs and garlands. Favors were individual Easter baskets filled with pastel carnations.

Mrs. Beverly Smith, President, conducted the business meeting. Mrs. Anne McGee’s guest, Mrs. Silvia Barfield from Tampa, Fla., was welcomed by the members. “Gardening” was chosen as next year’s program theme. Any aspect of gardening may be used for a program by the presenters. The program committee chairman, Mrs. Carol Walton, will have a sign-up sheet at the next meeting. A slate of officers for the 2018-2019 year was also approved by the members.

In keeping with the program theme of First Ladies, Mrs. Harriette Feldman gave a program on Mrs. Martha Jefferson Randolph. Although she was not the wife of a President, Mrs. Randolph served as First Lady during her father Thomas Jefferson’s Presidency from 1801 to 1809. Mrs. Feldman based her presentation on America’s First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie. This book draws heavily upon letters written by Thomas Jefferson. Martha Randolph was born on Sept. 27, 1772 at Monticello. She was described as tall and slim with angular features and red hair, and was said to closely resembled her father. Educated in Paris Martha Randolph later became the mother of 12 children. When her widowed father became President, she sometimes lived with him in the White House serving as his hostess and informal First Lady.
