The Women’s Club of Farmingdale (WCF) June meeting was held at Tre Scalini Restaurant in Farmingdale and hosted by Val Thieke and Nancy Carman. Tables were beautifully adorned with floral centerpieces and members were entertained with the exquisite sounds of Val Thieke’s granddaughter, Natalie, brilliantly playing the flute. Joining Natalie, were the melodious voices of several members singing along, including Joan, Rosemary, Lynda, and Fran. A short general meeting was held with the general membership approving several new motions pertaining to the club’s by-laws and procedures. The club was very excited to install its new Executive Board: President Lynda Leone, 1 st VP Margaret Barrett, 2 nd VP Debbie Podolski, Recording Secretary Lorraine Stanton, Corresponding Secretary Rosemary Emigholz, Treasurer Cathy Sewell and Auditor Lynn Connolly.
