Size 1 item
Abstract The AfterWWards Club, founded in 1985, was a social club based in Chapel Hill, N.C., for people who were excluded from the Welcome Wagon Club when that club began limiting its membership to three years. The AfterWWards Club allowed former Welcome Wagon Club members to continue in Welcome Wagon-like activities. It hosted several social events throughout the year, including a Fall Coffee, a Pig Pickin', and a Spring Fling. The Club also organized book clubs, bridge clubs, and a gourmet club. Club membership ranged between 71 and 315 until it disbanded in 2009. The collection is an album containing information about the history and activities of the AfterWWards Club. There is a short note about the origins of the Club, a brief explanation of the Club's logo, and summaries of the Club's activites for each year from 1985 to 2009. The summaries give the number of members for each year; names of Club officers and committee chairs; and descriptions of social events, interest group activities, and changes in the Club's membership, activites, and structure.
