May 18, 2012 – Annual May Breakfast
Our annual May Breakfast is a tradition begun in 1919 under club president (and later Seattle mayor) Bertha Landes. At the May Breakfast (and the Fall Reception, in October), new members are officially welcomed into the club with a white rose, the club flower.
This May Breakfast featured a screening of The Fifth Star, a documentary celebrating the suffragists, produced by the teenage girls of Reel Grrls, a Seattle nonprofit that trains young women to become filmmakers.
