The Women’s Club of Lebanon held its March meeting earlier this month at the Mansion at Fifth and Cumberland Streets.

The January meeting was cancelled due to inclement weather, so the 122nd anniversary of the Women’s Club was recognized at this month’s meeting instead. “The Club is proud to be one of the oldest continuous groups in Lebanon County,” according to the release.

Presentations on the topic of land and farm preservation were made to the group by ­­­Laurie Crawford, Executive Director of Lebanon Valley Conservancy, and Randall Leisure, Board Chairperson of the Lebanon County Conservation District.
