After enjoying a soup and salad luncheon at their January meeting, members of the Millville Woman’s Club (MWC) had an interesting program by EllenBeth Nappen, pictured, chairperson of the Arts Creative/Fiber Arts Committee. She demonstrated how to make a small book out of a single piece of paper, then assisted members in doing so. EllenBeth displayed a number of her books and offered to have a session on making paper earrings. Several members expressed an interest in participating.
