West Bagley Homemakers mark 65 years of service
BAGLEY — A small group of women from northern rural Menominee County was organized in 1956 by the late Marion E. Verbisky, and later became known at The West Bagley Homemakers. The positive impact of this group supporting not only Bagley but also their surrounding communities has truly been remarkable.
The group took over care of the Frank and Louise Adams Park in Bagley, adding a pavilion with electricity and water for picnics and other occasions. Through the years, they continued building up the park by adding playground equipment, toilet facilities, benches, planting trees and flowers and setting up various holiday displays. In addition to work at the park, the group has held events as fundraisers to make donations to those in need of assistance such as The Barb Palzewicz Cancer Fund, Mid-County Food Pantry, Mid-County Rescue Squad and many more.
The West Bagley Homemakers would like to thank a number of people who continue to assist them in these activities. They include: American Legion Post 487 Auxiliary, Roy Berto, Dawson, Denise, Jay and James Brand, Maxine Engel, Lyle Gearhart, Gill Grinsteiner, Hannahville Indian Community, Peggy Jardeen and Pam Koller-Belgiumtown Restaurant, Kathy Jerger, Bonnie Klingenmeier, Kraniak Brothers Farm, Jeff Krumbein and the Krumbein Grandchildren, Kevin Schwartz, Al Thompson, Todd Warn, R.Chance Cornell and Talisha McCullough.
The West Bagley Homemakers meet the second Tuesday of each month from April through December. They enjoy a great meal, discuss activities, play fun games and enjoy close friendships that have enabled them to celebrate 65 years of service to their communities.
New members are always welcome. Anyone interested in getting more information or attending a meeting may call Sue at 906-639-2565.
