On March 27,1915 sixteen,progressive alumnae formed the Asheville branch, now one of the largest and oldest in the state. Their historically impressive works and members will be showcased during 2015 as they celebrate ten decades of continued good deeds for city and county residents. Their lively kick-off party is March 15, complete with a “Through the Decades” fashion show. The centennial year will include more fun events, publicity and publications.
