Each year the Radcliff Woman’s Club presents a “Woman of the Year Award” to a member who represents the club by participating in activities and by setting a positive example for others to follow. This year Ethel Martin was chosen as the award recipient at the Dec. 10 club meeting at Colvin Community Center.
Martin, who was born in Pennsylvania, moved to Radcliff in 1974 and, at the urging of Maria Batistoni, joined the Radcliff Woman’s Club in 1994.
Well, another Christmas has come and gone. We spend months preparing for that one day and then it is over so quickly. I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends. My family and I had a wonderful time, except that I spent Christmas day on the couch not feeling well. But I still got to be with my family, so it still was a wonderful day.
