“What goes around comes around” is a phrase that aptly describes the Hemet Woman’s Club current Community Improvement Project (C.I.P.). The Woman’s Club will be raising funds towards a future Children’s Outside Activities Center at the Hemet Public Library. The Club will work with the library and the City of Hemet to expand an already existing area where children can explore science, gardening, arts and crafts, storytelling and reading under the direction of library staff. Back in 1958, the Club’s then President, Mrs. V.S. Hoopes, and members accepted the C.I.P. to furnish the new children’s reading and music room at the library.
The Hemet Woman’s Club legacy lives on. On Saturday, March 4, the Club will host a benefit performance of the award-winning Broadway play, “Other Desert Cities.” The Ramona Hillside Playhouse, a secret jewel at the foothills of the historic Ramona Bowl Amphitheatre, is a cozy community theatre that spotlights local theatrical talent of the San Jacinto Valley. Established in 1941, the theatre gets you “up close and personal” to quality live performances.
The Hemet Woman’s Club invites and encourages the community to join us in supporting the Children’s Activities Center. Tickets are $15 and available by contacting Michele Ryneal, C.I.P. Chairman, at (951) 238-8569.
