It was a fine day for the Northbrook Woman’s Club & Foundation traditional fall luncheon.
Jeanne Voigt of Glenview stepped outside of the banquet hall at the Northbrook Green Acres Country Club where the sun cast a noon hour glow over an autumn landscape on Oct. 4.
Voigt had been invited by her friend Rosalie Lemperis of Northbrook, to meet the members of the NWC/F.
“We work out together at Five Seasons (Northbrook),” said Lemperis. “And I invited her (Voigt) to meet all of these wonderful women.”
It is no secret the NWC/F membership is typically described as being comprised of “the outstanding women of Northbrook.”
“The openness and friendliness is very much appreciated,” observed Voigt.
Those adjectives also cover a group dedicated to hard work and philanthropic hospitality. Since the inception of the NWC/F in 1955, the club and later the foundation have raised more than $800,000 for college scholarships plus grants to local service providers.
“It’s really exciting for us,” said Elisa Glass, publicity chair, about the 2012-2013 season. “We are really hoping to draw a lot of people to our activities so that we can raise enough money.”
Sue Morley, NWC/F social chair, added: “The ladies who are in the Northbrook Woman’s Club are fantastic, I’ve met a lot of new friends.”
Book dramatist Barbara Rinella performed during the luncheon.
New members are always encouraged. One way to become acquainted with the mission of the NWC/F is to attend the Holiday Boutique, Dec. 6, at the Skokie Country Club in Glencoe. This will be a spectacular holiday boutique in a timeless setting. Bring a friend or more.
