Ebell members gathered in the club’s cozy, wood paneled library yesterday afternoon for a “Clubhouse Confab.” The informal gathering drew dozens of of the club’s 400 or so members to reconnect and chat about national and neighborhood goings on.

The “confab” concept was the brainchild of membership VP Linda Dean, Kristan Giordano and Yeni Alvarez DeCarlo and Ebell Membership Director Meredyth Deighton, who drafted the charming Brogdon sisters, Carole and Daphne, to host.  The turnout exceeded everyone’s expectations.

If this looks like fun to you, the Ebell welcomes you to learn more about membership in the historic club. Built in 1927, the Ebell clubhouse is an historic architectural treasure of our neighborhood. The Ebell club was founded in 1894, when women’s social clubs were forming around the country to offer women social, educational and cultural opportunities. The history of the Ebell is all the more fascinating because it continues to evolve in the present. (Full disclosure: Liz Fuller and I are both members!)

The cost of membership is modest, under $300 annually. Almost all the Ebell programs are open to non-members, but why not consider joining and become part of the Ebell. Contact Meredyth Deighton at meredyth@ebelloflosangeles.com for more information on joining the Ebell.
