: In this photograph, members of the Ohio Girls' Club of Washington, D.C. celebrate Thanksgiving at St. John's Hospitality Center, 1948. Founded in 1918, the club provided women who were natives of Ohio, but lived and worked in Washington, D.C., with the opportunity "of forming friendships, of making their social lives more pleasant, and of entertaining soldiers, especially from Ohio, stationed in the vicinity." Social events, activities for returning servicemen, and supporting charitable causes were among the club's activities. The club disbanded in 1982. View on Ohio Memory.
