This October marks 125 years since the formation of the La Jolla Woman’s Club (LJWC). Also in October, the club will celebrate the 105th anniversary of its historic Irving J. Gill building.

To start off the anniversary month, the LJWC will hold a kick-off event from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 715 Silverado St. This event will feature a high-end ladies boutique pop-up shop.

To celebrate these milestones, the LJWC will host a Casino Royale Gala from 4:30-9:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 19, at the clubhouse location. The event will include dinner, dancing, casino games, and an opportunity drawing.

“This anniversary, we’re looking forward to continuing the history of women working to make their community a better place,” says the current president of the LJWC, Tona Macken.

In 1894, a group of local women met to discuss current events and books. These women would name their group the La Jolla Woman’s Club in 1900. The club has been active in many historic events including the women’s suffrage movement.

Fast forward 125 years, the LJWC supports women in the community through events like the Women in Leadership speaker series, yoga classes, and community service projects. And the club still gathers together to discuss books.

“I’m looking forward to honoring the legacy of the club and celebrating the exciting things that we have going on in the future,” says Macken, who is looking forward to growing the club’s membership this year. “A woman’s club is a great place to meet with other women who have common interests and make the community a better place.” 

October will bring the club’s first meeting of the season. Regular luncheons and meetings start the first Monday of each month starting in October. Each meeting is accompanied by a speaker or another form of entertainment. The season’s first meeting will be at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 7.

“La Jolla Woman’s Club has a wonderful, illustrious history of support of the community,” says Macken. “We’re looking forward to continuing to be a moving force in La Jolla and San Diego.”

I am here to give my testimony about Dr Musa Ibrahim who helped me cure my Herpes Virus. I visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which are very expensive and never cured me. Two months ago a friend suggested that I try Herbal Medicine from a very powerful Herbal Doctor called Dr Musa Ibrahim. I looked up his blog on the internet site and indeed he have had immense success with his product. There were lot of people posting their testimony about how he cured them from different diseases, when I contacted him he gave me hope and told me what I need to do and avoid during the treatment after that, he sent his Herbal Medicine to me which I took and it seriously worked for me, I discovered that the sores on my private part was cured and I no longer have night fever and headaches after concluding Dr. Musa Herbal medicine I went for test and my Herpes result was negative. My doctor was shocked how I got cured, I referred him to the doctor who cured me. I advice those with the virus to please contact him and get cured with Herbal medicine. Remember your health is precious, you can reach him on his official email address; drmusaibrahim20@gmail.com

I have been leaving with Genital Herpes for 6 years with lot of outbreaks and stigma, with the knowledge of no cure for the virus affected me morally and mentally because of the discrimination by people. I started using Famvir (famciclovir) drugs for a very long time but which is not totally preventing the outbreaks and didn’t cure me either. l came across lot of testimony on a blogger page including the doctor email address when surfing the internet about how they were cured from different diseases within 21 days with Dr. Ahmed Usman local traditional Herbal medicine example of the doctor patient were ‘Luciene Ethan from Ecuador and Denver Luke from Florida’ which I find interesting so I decided to give the doctor a try. I contacted Dr. Ahmed on his official email address and after telling me his means of preparation I ordered for one which he truly sent to me through UPS delivery service and with his prescription I used the herbal medicine for 21 days and I discovered the different between the herbal medicine and famciclovir drugs, the outbreaks on my private part was cured and the symptoms I used to have were no more, after using the herbal medicine as prescribed by doctor Ahmed I decided to go for another IgG text and my result came out negative with no trace of the virus on my blood. I will really love to recommend him to anyone with the virus and you reading this testimony with the virus to please contact him for cure, he is really trustworthy and his herbal medicine works for herpes, because he cured me, I will really love if this doctor Herbs will be published for anyone without internet assess to purchase and be cured. My name is Adam Jules and I am from United Kingdom I love herbs so much. please contact doctor Ahmed Usman through his Email address on: drahmedusman5104@gmail.com. Please share the good news to other people once you are cured. He said he has herbal medicine for Breast cancer, Fibroid, Asthma, joint and bone pains and Diabetes
