Recently in the Vanderbilt Woman's Club:

Our Opening Garden Tea was held on September 6th.  Members and newcomers met at the historic Chancellor's Residence to reconnect after the summer months, sign up for interest groups, and honor our life members.  First Lady Lydia Howarth, our host for the event, introduced those women who have been members of the Club for 40 years, while President Angela Bowens and Vice President Aileen Webb bestowed roses upon them.  Guests then enjoyed a delicious array of hors d'oeuvres and canapes, and afterwards strolled the beautiful grounds.  It was a lovely way to kick off the new academic year.
