Mayor, conductor speak to Woman's Club

DOWNEY - Cindy Kovak, Marie Bernal and Irma Gallo were installed as new members of the Woman's Club of Downey on Oct. 3 at the Clubhouse. Kovak is a branch manager at U.S. Bank in Downey while Gallo is with Friends of the Downey City Library. Bernal is retired.

The meeting included comments from Mayor Roger Brossmer and a presentation by Sharon Lavery, music director of the Downey Symphony.

"It pleased me so much to have our mayor recognize the hard and good work we do," said Jean Barrara, member of the Woman's Club. Lavery gave a PowerPoint presentation and offered a lesson in conducting.

"I never knew how much was involved in conducting and the lesson was fun," said Marie Augimeri, a Woman's Club board member and curator. "I had such a wonderful time."

The club's next meeting is Nov. 7 at 5 p.m. Carpools are available for residents who don't drive at night.
