In the beginning, there was no women's club in Hinckley; no club to serve the needs or desires of the newcomers to the community or those of the seasoned residents.
A handful of women decided to organize such a group. they committed themselves to building an efficient organization that would be dedicated to serving social and service needs in the community. In May 1981 the Hinckley Women's Club was launched. The members of the original Charter Executive Board were:
President: Heather Liccardi
Vice President: Cheryl Valasik
Secretary: Elberta Waleri
Treasurer: Kathy Masek
Together, with a nucleus of community oriented, active members, they gave of their time and talent and the Hinckley Wemen's Club grew. New interest groups were included, membership expanded, by-laws were constructed and amended, other groups began to seek them out, and "working" as a Women's Club member became more fun than work.
It is the hope of the Charter Membership that we continue to learn from each other as we serve Hinckley Women's Club, we find acceptance and friendship that enriches us all.
