Civic Club celebrating 75 years!

Hesston Women’s Civic Club is celebrating its 75th anniversary with an open house on Saturday, September 22, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the library. There will be displays featuring the history and current work of Civic Club, and light refreshments will be served. Everyone is welcome!

Hesston Women’s Civic Club was formed in 1937, and soon after began the work of establishing a community library. Civic Club ran the library for almost 30 years, holding book drives and fundraisers to build the library collection. Initially club members volunteered to staff the library; in later years, the club paid staff members. The library began a tax-supported entity in 1967, but Civic Club has continued to support the library through the years by raising funds, establishing preschool story time, decorating for Christmas, and many other endeavors.

Today, Civic Club continues to support the library while also assisting other important organizations within our community, including the Hesston Resource Center and Dyck Arboretum. As a library, we are grateful for all they’ve done! We invite you to celebrate this important milestone as we celebrate the wonderful legacy of Hesston Women’s Civic Club!
