The Women’s Board of Lake Erie Nature & Science Center enjoyed their annual spring luncheon at Cleveland Yacht Club on June 1, a perfect spring day for reminiscing with friends!

During social time, members and guests browsed through albums of pictures and news articles from past WB and Center events.

Two WB members, Mady Deter and Ellie Kirchner were honored for their 50-year membership with the Women’s Board and the Center.

Within their many years, each served as the group’s president, committee chair, or committee member and enthusiastically supported the many fundraisers held by the Women’s Board to benefit LENSC. They gave of their leadership, time, energy, ideas and guidance.

If you remember many of our WB fundraisers such as Barefoot thru the Park, Spring Thing Plants/Crafts sale, Nearly New Sale, Pansy Sales, the former Owl’s Nest Gift Shop within the Center, Christmas Carousel, House & Garden Tour and Huntington Playhouse Theater events, you may have seen either Mady or Ellie on one of the committees.

Catherine Timko, executive director of Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, also commended Mady and Ellie for their 50-year Women’s Board membership and continued support of the Center. She presented each with a favorite poem of Alberta Fleming, the Center’s founder.

Congratulations to both Mady Deter and Ellie Kirchner!

The Women’s Board places high value on regard for nature, the fellowship and diversity of membership, dedication and enthusiasm for hard work, and a willingness to grow and learn as individuals and as a volunteer organization.
