KELSEYVILLE, Calif. — The Lake County Women’s Civic Club celebrated its 101st anniversary on Friday, March 4, at the monthly meeting held at Riviera Hills Country Club.

More than 40 women came together to celebrate this accomplishment.

There was a beautiful cake provided by Riviera Hills Country Club to kick off the birthday celebration.

Club members said the restaurant’s manager, Kevin, and his team have gone above and beyond for this club for years and this event was extra special to be presented with the beautiful 101st birthday cake.

They also said it was nice to be able to celebrate the club’s birthday all month long, after not being able to do something in person last year.

The Lake County Women’s Civic Club is committed to giving back to Lake County for years to come.

The group will be hosting its Mad Hatter Luncheon on April 23 at Boatique Winery. Help make the 101st year of service a success by purchasing tickets or providing a donation item. Contact Kerry Moore at 707-364-6165 for more information.
