Gladys Harris Award

THE GLADYS HARRIS LEGACY

In 1922 the club employed a nineteen year old girl, Gladys Beth Harris, as Executive Secretary. She had exceptional organizational ability and her coordination of the club's many committees contributed in a large part to the eminent position in the community for the next fifty years. She retired in 1972 (now deceased) and in her memory the club established the Gladys Harris Award, given to certain Meninak members whose contribution to the club is outstanding.
