The Wednesday Club.
On Monday the eleventh of January 1904 seven Sandy Spring girls met at the Tanglewood to form a Literary Society to be known as the Wednesday Club. We decided to meet every other week on the day from which it derives its name at three o'clock, in alphabetical order of the homes of the members. We asked the neighborhood girls whom we thought would especially care to join us, and any others who wished to could apply for membership. For the present the number of members was limited to twenty. Helen Thomas was made
chairman. Rebecca Miller, Margaret Bancroft & Helen Thomas were appointed a committee to plan programs for the season's meetings.
