The Federated Woman’s Club, founded in 1957, celebrates 60 years of service next year but could use a few new members. Members, led by co-founder Helen Foerster, top left, gather at a meeting a few years back.
Nearing its 60th year of existence, the Federated Woman’s Club of Los Altos is still operating, but the club could use some new blood. Just ask Helen Foerster, the last surviving founding member, who remains the heart and soul of the club.
Now in her 90s, Foerster continues to be in charge of scheduling speakers for the club’s monthly meetings. In addition to the satisfaction of volunteering and helping others, Foerster said she loves the club for the “long-term friendships – just being with people.”
