Biographical or Historical Information

Despite the brief history of the Nacogdoches Mother’s Club (1988-1993), the organization left a lasting legacy of communal, educational, and social programming to the city. Among the activities best remembered might be the annual Christmas festivals, holiday house tours, Easter egg hunts and arts and crafts exhibitions. Programs on sex education, fire safety and the humane treatment of animals, as well as fund-raisers for playground equipment in Pecan Park, demonstrated the club’s commitment to responsible parenting and child safety. The club also brought mothers together for events as diverse as membership teas and banquets to lectures on self-defense, family nutrition and flower arrangement.Note written by Joyce Pitts
