Members of the Roswell Woman’s Club had its monthly meeting on Wednesday at Los Cerritos Mexican Kitchen, where the installation of the new officers took place.

“We want to thank our current officers,” Sharon Lombardi said, who did the swearing in. “We have followed your footprints and now find ourselves where belonging makes a difference. You have done a fine job for us. We are a blend of the past and the present, and we look forward to our future under the leadership of our new officers knowing we will be able to adjust to any changes that may occur.”

After the new officers accepted their positions, Lombardi reminded the members to not be too critical, which is part of the oath the members pledged.

The Roswell Woman’s Club was established in 1895 to support literacy in Roswell. Today’s club continues its involvement in the community by giving out scholarships to Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell, supporting the Southeastern New Mexico Historical Foundation fund, the Roswell Public Library, Refuge for Battered Adults, Roswell Museum and Art Center, S.O.Y. Mariachi and providing cards and small tokens of appreciation to the veterans in local retirement homes.

The club is going to have a call for children’s winter and Christmas paintings to give to these retirement homes to brighten the upcoming season. More details will follow in the Sunday edition of the Roswell Daily Record’s Vision section.

The next meeting will be Nov. 6 at noon at Los Cerritos Mexican Kitchen. For more information, visit its Facebook page or call 575-917-1292.
