  • My Mom was a charter member of the Santa Barbara "Modern Mother's Club." Begun just after WW II, all members had small children and were united in mutual support activities. The club mothers did volunteer work, held rummage sales and (as the years passed and toddlers grew to college age) gave cash grants to college freshmen for their first book buying needs. Another of the club's traditions was that everybody had a secret pal, one who bestowed, anonymously, small gifts and/or surreptitiously benefited their assigned secret pal for the year. Eventually, every mother had been a secret pal to every other and the round commenced again. I always was intrigued with the concept and hereby immortalize it on Wordie, as well as tag it "mom" in her loving memory. Mom was always my secret pal.
