Clarence Women’s Club announced the winners of the group’s 2013 scholarships. The recipients, who are seniors at Clarence High School, are John DeJac, Leah Farley, James Lamb, Matthew Scalzi and Joseph Shimo.

The club raised the funds for the scholarships at its 50th annual Scholarship Card and Game Night on May 7.


Susan Rudnicky, a member of the Fern Leaf Reading Club of Holland, won the Helen Geisler Best of Show award in the 2013 annual Helen P. Kelley Memorial Art Show held at the Holland Community Center. Her entry was an acrylic painting titled “Orchid Daze.”

Other winners from the Holland club were: watercolor, Sarah Tobin for “Allen’s Point”; pottery, Susan Marom for “Bird’s Nest”; knitting, Barbara Brooks, for “Counterpane Bedspread”; and patterned needlework, for “Halloween Centerpiece.”

The show attracted clubwomen from as far away as Mayville and Wellsville. The best of show award is named after longtime resident of Holland and active clubwoman Helen Geisler. The WNYFWC is made up of women’s clubs from the eight western counties.
