Green Mothers' Club


Green Mothers' Club comes from the South Korean cable network jTBC which has given the green light for its Netflix release. The heartwarming series follows the lives of five women who bond over their struggles with motherhood. Express.co.uk has everything there is to know about the cast of Green Mothers' Club.




Green Mothers' Club



In practice, the club pursued such activities as recruiting WAVES (Women's Reserve of the Navy Reserve) and SPARS (Women's Reserve of the Coast Guard), participating in Memorial Day, Navy Day, and other patriotic observances, and supporting a Drill Team that performed at various ceremonies, events and conventions. The Mothers assembled care packages of personal items such as shaving supplies and shoeshine kits, sent birthday cards and scrapbooks to the sons of club members, mended clothing and entertained servicemen with picnics and dances. They also made layettes and held baby showers for sailors' wives. In later years, the Mothers' charitable activities included knitting blankets for the Veterans' Hospitals, collecting second-hand clothing for the Toledo Mental Health Center, and used eye glasses for the Sight Center, and making Christmas baskets for needy families.


In 1952 the Toledo Club hosted the National Convention, which was held at the Commodore Perry Hotel in downtown Toledo. In 1955, the various local clubs around the state met in Toledo and organized the state chapter, officially named the Ohio State Club #3. Mrs. Helen Stong, a member of the Toledo Club since the early 1940s, was instrumental in organizing the state chapter and was elected as State Commander. Mrs. Stong remained active in the club for many years and her work is well represented in this collection.


The Toledo Club remained active to some degree until around 1994. A majority of the work carried out in the later years was due to the efforts of Mrs. Lucille Keeton of Rossford, who served as Chaplain of the club. For further information on the history of the national organization, see The Origin, Formation and History of the Navy Mothers' Clubs of America, 1930-1943, written and published by the Navy Mothers' Club of America in 1943.


This collection contains a wide variety of items, but is primarily composed of scrapbooks and photographs reflecting the activities of the Navy Mothers' Clubs of America, Toledo Club #180, its members and their families, and its Drill Team, from 1941 through the late 1990s. These scrapbooks overlap in chronology and although they provide good insight into the local club, the researcher should be aware that many of the photographs are unidentified. Also included are scattered minutes, membership records, correspondence, financial records and news clippings. There are materials relating to the club's official bylaws and procedures, and state conventions and rallies, and artifacts including a complete Drill Team uniform.


Although it primarily focuses on the local club, the collection does contain material documenting the origins, business and activities of the national organization, state chapters and the Northwest Ohio Past Commanders Club. This material is also scattered and consists of correspondence, minutes, reports and rosters of officers. Of particular interest is an incomplete run of the national organization's newsletter, "Navy Mothers' News," roughly covering the years 1951-1968 and 1986-1997.
