A creek-side prairie church service began a day of celebrating at the Big Horn Woman's Club 100th birthday party.

It’s still all about community service as members of the Big Horn Woman’s Club threw a party for its 100th birthday and everyone was welcome.  The woman’s club began in September 1910 with an exclusive membership of 12 carefully selected women who gathered in homes to study world affairs, geography, history, and literature.

Jealousy soon raised its ugly head, and eventually the club was open to all, now boasting 50 members who meet monthly to simply enjoy each other’s company.

The theme for the club is "Do your best for yourself and your community,” and member Gwen Turner tells us what the club does.

75-year-old club president Lu Reeves gives us a bit of history about the club.

And the club is always looking for new members.

The birthday bash included a prairie church service down by the creek, lunch with Indian tacos, homemade ice cream, and the women even tried their hand at churning butter in the 100 degree weather.
