Sept. 17, 2012 - PRLog -- Reba Shepard of the Woman’s Club of Stuart, is hoping that longtime residents may have some forgotten memories of the Club tucked away in storage or in the attic.  The Woman’s Club of Stuart is the oldest women’s organization to operate continuously in Martin County. It celebrates its 100th year in 2013 and committees are planning events throughout the year.  
Reba Shepard is chairing the history committee with co-chair Helen Engebretsen. “Our committee has discovered about 15 scrapbooks that were made by the Club Presidents over the years. We think there could be many more, “ Reba stated.
Existing scrapbooks are from 1956, 1963, 1964-65, 1967, 1971-77,1979, 1980-83, 1986, 1993, 1995, 1999, 2001-02, 2011.
The scrapbooks are archives of the Club’s history, its projects and the women who were community activists.  With the help of local historians Sandra Thurlow and Alice Luckhart, they are bringing alive the decades of rich history.  
If you have treasures to share or questions, please contact Reba Shepard at 288-4606 or by email at rshepfl@bellsouth.net.
