THE HERITAGE LEAGUE originated in 1966 when some members wished to retire from the Junior Women’s Club and affiliate independently with the General Federation of Women’s Clubs and Nebraska Federation of Women’s Clubs, District I. LaVerne Cook was the first president. Other charter members were Bess Ash, Cec Cather, Olive Copple, Gloria DeVoe, Kay Keister, Ginny Rohrbaugh, Dee Schmadeke, Ellen Smiley, Ruth Va Boskirk and Joan Wentz. After years of various kinds of fund-raising, Cec Cather proposed sponsorship of a Holiday of Trees event for community participation and benefit.
The Heritage League Woman’s Club was organized in 1966 and is affiliated with the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC). The Heritage League was organized for charitable and educational purposes and is a 501 (c)(3) organization. The club meets on Tuesdays for general meetings with featured programs and also special interest groups that include Bridge, Books, and Home & Away.
