Over the past nine decades, the members of the Pembroke Book Club have directed themselves toward embodying the organization’s motto of “Advancing Women and Literature Since 1929.” A dedicated group of individuals, they have devoted countless hours of their time to improving the quality of life for local residents, and their numerous achievements are truly praiseworthy.
Willingly giving of their energy and abilities, all those involved with the Pembroke Book Club, both past and present, have worked tirelessly to better the world around them. We are proud to note that it is through the diligent efforts of conscientious people such as these that the State of Ohio continues to grow and prosper and remains a place in which to live and work.
Thus, it is with sincere pleasure that we applaud the Pembroke Book Club on the occasion of its Ninetieth Anniversary and salute its members as some of Ohio’s finest citizens.
