The Pledge we say at each meeting.
Collect for Club Women
Keep us, oh God from pettiness
Let us be large in thought, in word in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding and leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face,
Without self-pity and without prejudice,
May we never be hasty in judgement and always generous,
Let us take time for all things:
Make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action or better impulses,
Straightforward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences,
That in the big things of life we are at one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the
Great, common human heart of us all.
And, Oh Lord God, let us forget not to be kind!

JUST 103 YEARS AGO
Just 103 years ago, dear friends,
Some special ladies planned
To sit no longer by the stream.
Nor longer idly stand
While world events were rushing by
In history making race.
So they organized our Woman's Club
And proudly took their place.
This poem was written over 103 years in 1917,
during WW I by an unknown member.
