The Rockbridge Historical Society featured the Lexington Woman’s Club, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in October, as this month’s historical presentation. Program chairman David Coffey said this was the first RHS presentation focusing specifically on a woman’s organization. The Lexington Woman’s Club president, Ingrid Sinclair-Day, presented a slide show documenting the club’s history since it was founded in 1911. Although government programs now cover many of the club’s original functions, Sinclair-Day says the club continues to sponsor many educational scholarships and programs. During her presentation, Sinclair-Day recognized several of the club’s long-term members, some of whom have belonged to the club for more than 60 years.
