Among the many things they do is to provide scholarships to Bear Lake seniors, monetary donations to the Ramsdell Theatre, Coats for Kids to the Headstart Program in Kaleva and give to local food banks.

Attending the meeting were members instrumental to the club’s growth over the years, including Barbara Olson and Donna Gamble.

Elected to lead the club into the beginning of their next 70 years was Terry Parks.
