Radcliff Woman’s Club met July 8 at Colvin Community Center. Anne Aubrey introduced the guest speaker, Radcliff Deputy Fire Marshal John Vandermolen. Vandermolen explained that there is a need for three large screens for use within the community center.  The screens would be used by not only the fire department, but also by other city departments and many civic organizations which utilize the community center.

Marilyn Williams, cultural awareness chairman, then introduced the students from the Cultural Learning Class of the Musical Arts Center. Lorinda Jones, spokesperson for the musical group, told the group about the three framed harp, which originated 100 years ago and was originally the instrument of only the aristocracy. The use of bagpipes and fiddles, she said, gained popularity  in the 20th century with a world-wide acceptance of Riverdance and Celtic Woman.

Taking the ladies on a cultural adventure, the students performed a medley of Irish, Scottish and Kentucky ballads on the three framed harp.  Next, they performed an Irish tune on the American Indian flute and another Irish tune on the Irish whistle.

Area women are invited to the next meeting of the Radcliff Woman’s Club on Aug. 12 at Colvin Community Center with a program on public issues.
