The Longshore Women's Golf Association (LWGA) celebrated its 50th anniversary on July 20 at the Longshore Club. The celebration was remarkable in many ways, but especially because a few of the founding members were able to attend and speak to us all.

Beryl Buck Miller, the founder and first President and Mimi Levitt, another one of the founders spoke to the group. Past members were given corsages, and Helen Joseph, 98, was the oldest one in attendance.

Current president Chris Lorusso, thanked event co-chairmen Jeanne Klinge and Cathy Ryan for the time they put in to make it happen. Caryl Beatus was the historian who located many people.
