I continue to scan the Friendly Neighbor Club annual booklets from the Voge/Lamp collection. I was wondering when this club began and found what I was looking for.
Their charter year was 1948-49. I noticed a few names I'm not familiar with and am looking for help as to who they are, their family members, and what occupation they or their husbands had in the area.

Booklet containing the 1948-49 and 1949-50 years.

Charter members


First officers


Ella Fledderman from the Minnie Lamp collection.

Jessie Bushman, Hilda Overgaard, Deanie Wittrock, and Cathy Riesselman, along with Ella Fledderman are women who I'm curious about their Manning connections...

Joyce (Richards) sent me this information: As far as I know Jessie Bushman & Ella Fledderman both lived south of Manning on farms.
As far as I can remember all of the ladies of the club lived on farms south of 141.
Hilda Overgaard lived in Gray. Her husband, Andrew, operated the Gray mill and feed store.
