Quakertown BPW Celebrates 65 Years
2018-10-04

Past Quakertown PBW Presidents left to right, Sheryl Nierenberg, 

Melissa Wieand, Judy Guise, Janet Bonekemper, Nancer Werner, and

Linda Lokay.

 

          We all love to celebrate our birthdays and Quakertown BPW had a "precious" evening of celebrating 65 years filled with sapphires, balloons, cake and memories on Tuesday, September 25 at the Proper Brewery, on Broad Street in Quakertown.

            The Quakertown Local Organization was chartered on January 7, 1953 with 21 women. The Past Presidents of the LO were presented roses for their leadership years from the current President Rita Woodward. Honored were: Elfriede Werner, Nancy Werner, Janet Bonekemper, Judy Guise, Toni Rubic, Linda Lokay, Melissa Wieand and Sheryl Niernenberg.

            The famous BPW/PA quilt was also featured as were many vintage scrapbooks/photos of the Quakertown BPW's history. Many awards and citations were also displayed and Judy Guise read the most current ones to the audience.

            The many members and guests were entertained by Kate Campbell Stevenson, nationally known for her back to history one woman shows.  She performed as inspirational Eleanor Roosevelt on overcoming her fear of public speaking. Her musical talent and knowledge of the life of Eleanor was most engaging. Kate did not know that Eleanor was a card carrying New York BPW member. We learned this fact from Jeanie Sluck, from District 8. 

            Everyone went home with a copy of Eleanor's membership card.

            We were delighted to have three district locals represented.  Ginny Bailey, our BPW/PA Representative, and District XI Director Melissa Wieand also provided remarks to the group. We also had Donna Weinstein, PSP, and BPW/PA Treasurer Jean Towle join us. We heard from many PSPs with their well wishes and a message/gift from our State President Theresa Rusbosin.

            Toni Rubic and Nancy Werner co-chaired the event along with Linda Lokay, Sue Lewis and President Rita Woodword.
