Chapter History

Thelma Chapter #24 was organized on May 11, 1907. We received our charter on Oct. 7,1907. We celebrated our 100 years at our Nov. 12, 2007 meeting. Our first worthy matron was Ella Wolcott and the first worthy patron was T. L. Davies, with 28 charter members.

To raise money, our chapter makes Easter eggs, apple butter every year, which is a lot of work and fun. This past year we also sponsored a basket bingo. The women’s club of Clendenin has a fall festival every year in which we sell our wares, such as apple butter and baked goods and canned goods that some of our members make and donate. We support the Herbert Hoover High School project graduation every year, the Clendenin Ministerial Association, and the Clendenin Library. We also bought a longaberger basket this winter which we accepted donations for, and it was given away on June 9, 2008.

The funds that we raised also go to the Worthy Grand Matron and Worthy Grand Patron projects each year. In the month of June, we go to the Huntington VA Hospital and play bingo with the veterans and in December we go and take gifts for each veteran who is in the hospital. We adopted a veteran from the Barboursville VA Home, his name is Charles, and we all have enjoyed meeting and helping him.
