DOWNEY - Debbie Tomlinson, director of volunteer and support services at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, was guest speaker at the Woman's Club of Downey's May meeting.The meeting also served as a celebration of the club's 93rd anniversary. Over the past 18 years, the Woman's Club of Downey has donated more than $400,000 to Rancho from its bingo proceeds. And even while going through tough economic times, the club has not slowed in its efforts to give back to the community, sponsoring scholarship grants, helping local veterans, and more. "As a member of this wonderful club, I have so many good friends and such a good time while doing so much good for so many," said member Jean Barrera. "I encourage anyone interested in giving back to this community to join. We really are a wonderful group of women and I am so proud of our recognition from (Rancho)." The Woman's Club welcomed three new members this month: Renata Macias, owner of Renata's Fantasy Flowers; Evelyn Cormack, pianist; and Veronica Camacho. For a membership application, call Jean Barrera at (562) 861-1114.
