Kinsloe House will host the “75th Birthday Luncheon” at 12 noon. President Barbara Watkins, with her committee, will present a nostalgic program with a step back to the year 1938.

You will see fashions that would have been worn at Kinsloe, hear the sounds of the era, and celebrate with members as they recall the culmination of a dream of the Women’s Club House that began in 1937. Please call to make your reservations or cancellations by 12:00 noon on Monday, May 6th. Don’t miss out on all the fun members are going to have at this event.
