Trianc00le Club con't from page "You don't ask somebody to come as men and half of as had to come as women." Rennet was dressed as a riverboat gambler. "I had a big, black, flowing mustache." Frequently they held "progressive" i:mxties, the women recalled. Appetizel"s were served at one house, soup at another, the main dish at another. "When you got to the last one, then you partied," Rennet said. But manyofthemembersofTriangle Club have left the rolls forever. "Look how many we had in 1985 and 1986," said June Ross, looking at an old account book. "You know where most of them are now, don't you?" Huckabee said. In the cemetery, Ross said. It has become more difficult to obtain the information programs that were once a club mainstay. and speak to five grandmas," Renner said. "Grandmas? That's nice," Shaw said; most of them are great- grandmas now, she said. The club kept itself alive with the infusion of new members, but"young women don't have the time" now, Renner said. The remaining members decided to disband. "It comes to all of us," Shaw said. But the members met one more time, for coffee and cookies with Jan Wilson, and for one more sing-along around the piano, with Wilson playing andElizabeth Parrsinging"SanAntonio Rose" for Geneva Huckabee.The club treasury was divided between the Brewster Senior Centerand Okanogan County Fire District No. 5 and the ambulance fund.

Qgad..CJlald December 10:1998 Bridge[00ort Chamber honors Hanfords; installs Billie Monroe '99 president Joan and Han'y L. Hanford were honored as 1998 Citizens of the Year, and new-old Chamber president Biilie Monroe was introduced at the annual Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce banquet Monday, December 7. At the banquet and in earlier conversations, Harry Hartford said he did not know why he and his wife were chosen as Citizens of the Year. "Sometimes we do it just because people arc plumb nice," Monroe said; actually, there were many instances of kindness and community service, according to the Hanfords' friends and neighbors. Members of American Legion Post No. 218, Bridgeport, gave the couple some special Christmas decorations; Harry Hanford is a veteran of two wars, which is a lot of service anyway, said the Legion Auxiliary member who presented the gifts. But in addition to that the couple volunteers many hours for Legion activities and events. Verlee Cavadini recalled a time when a severe illness left her drained of energy and not enthusiastic about getting ready to attend the North Central Washington District Fair with her children. The Hanfords showed up unannounced and cleaned her camp trailer, she said; no matter "where the need is, they are there." Harry Hanford said he and Joan were grateful for the award, and loved their town. He has lived in the Bridgeport area all his life, Hartford said. "I've got this to say. It is the best place on Monroe reviewed the Chamber's year in 1998, a time of both challenge and success. She started the year as vice-president, and became president when Pat Gordon suffered a disabling illness. (Gordon recalled that Monroe had taken the vice-president's job with rcluctance,andagreed only afterGordon promised not to get sick.) She has been elected for a full term in 1999. "With lots of help" the 1998 Page 5 Cheryl Schweizer ohoto Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce president Billio Monroe (left) presents the Citizen of the Year award to Joan end Harry L. Hanford. Bridgeport Daze celebration was one of the best in a long time, Monroe said; it takes many people working together to create success. She also credited the hard work of Bridgeport Daze chair Susan Sloan. The Chamber also sponsored a number ofcomm unity forums, including discussions of home security, tax preparation, investments and juvenile crime and justice. The Chamber also sponsored a visit by state legislators and a discussion forum for candidates for county offices. Community Appreciation awards, presented for community service, were given to the Quad City Eagles lodge and Ken Krugel, postmaster and president of the Dollars for Scholars chapter. None of those activities would have happened, Monroe said, without the effort and dedication of Chamber secretary Sherilyn Jacobson. In fact, there might not be a Chamber without Jacobson, Monroe said. She introduced the 1999 officers; Jacobson will continue as secretary and Adine Knopp has  agreed to serve another year as treasurer. Dorothee Thaut is the new vice- president. Gary Ivory has been elected to the board of directors, joining Pat Krugel and Lee Schreibner. Lani Rahm, Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce president, was the scheduled guest speaker; she cancelled due to poor driving conditions. Feast of GuadGiupe to be celebrated Saturday A day-long celebration of the Feast of Guadeloupe will be held Saturday, December 12 in Brewster. The festival is a Catholic religious celebration, commemorating the appearance, long ago, of Mary of Nazareth to a Mexican farmer. Catholic tradition holds that Mary appeared to the farmer Juan Diego on Mexican mountaintop one December day (December 12, actually) about 500 years ago. Traditionally the day is commemorated with prayer, Mass, processions and celebrations. Festivities in Brewster will begin at 6a.m. with mananitias,a special prayer and song service, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. The church is located at 308 South 5th Sweet. Members of St.Augustine's Catholic Church, Spokane, Sacred Heart's sister parish, will be in town to attend the festival. An all-parish and sister-parish potluck luncheon will be held at noon at the Brewster High School commons. The procession in honor of Mary will begin at 6 p.m., in the parking lot at 7th Street Market. The route will take the marchers through town to the high school. Spanish-language Mass will follow, at about 7 p.m. in the high school commons. Lala Lopez and students in the fifth and sixth grade youth group have prepared a play telling the story of Juan Diego and Mary's visit. They will present it after Mass. In addition, Members of the Sacred Heart junior high and high school youth group will host members of St. Augustine's youth group for an overnight stay at the parish hall. The teens will have breakfast together Sunday morning. Catholic tradition teaches thai Mary visited Juan Diego on December 12, asking that a church be built on the spot she appeared, and that the local churches take additional steps to aid the poor. Juan Diego took her requests to the bishop, who asked for a sign that Juan Diego was telling the truth: In the meantime, Juan Diego's uncle became very ill; Juan Diego, discouraged by the skepticism of others and the family troubles, tried to avoid the route that had taken him to the mountain. But Mary reappeared, instructing him to go back to the mountain. He would find fresh flowers there, she said, that he was to take to the bishop. She also promised to cure his uncle.. Juan Diego found the flowers and wrapped them in his cloak. When he opened his cloak to give them to the bishop, the cloak was imprinted with a picture of Mary. (His uncle was cured as well.) The annual procession always features pictures of the cloak, which can be seen at the church built on the mountaintop.
