Mary Very Club

Mrs. A. B. NELSON, President

Organized 1898
Federated 1919

The Mary VERY Club, formerly the South Park Mothers' Club, was organized in 1898 as one of the San Francisco Settlement Clubs. The object of the club was to enlarge the social spirit and do such work as the club wished. The club does some sewing and has speakers on topics of general interest twice a month. In 1919 we joined the City Federation of Women's Clubs.

The club contributed one hundred and fifty garments in addition to seventy dollars to the Near East Relief. A whist party is now being planned, the proceeds of which will be given to further the good work of the House of Friendship.

At the death of our beloved honorary member, Miss Mary VERY, in 1916, the club decided to change its name, and since has been known as the Mary VERY Club. Meetings are held every Tuesday at 3:00 p.m., at Mission Center, Y. W. C. A., 2520 Folsom Street.
