DeKalb Women’s Club honors past members

Published: Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012 5:30 a.m. CDT

The DeKalb Women’s Club donated funds to the DeKalb Public Library to honor and remember three of its past members, Barbara Wallin, Barbara Lindus and Grace Hoy. The funds were used to purchase library materials in each of their names.

Two books were purchased in memory of Lindus and Hoy, “The President’s Speech,” by C. Edwin Vilade, and “Lifelong Landscape Design,” by Mary Palmer Dargan, respectively. To remember Wallin, the library purchased “Wired: The DeKalb Documentary,” a local film, to be added to its local history collection.

The DeKalb Women’s Club supports the library and literacy by making these meaningful contributions to remember those lost.

The DeKalb Public Library is located at 309 Oak St. in DeKalb and is open to the public seven days a week.
