LANCASTER Decades melted away for 18 former members of the Lancaster Junior Women’s Club, who gathered recently for a reunion. The women recalled the camaraderie and the friendships made at the club, which was for women under age 35. The club, which existed from 1936 to 1965, helped charities and supported special projects. Frances “Fritzie” Murrell Wiley, who was the last club president in 1964-1965, put the event together after weeks of research to find as many of the past juniors as possible. A full gourmet meal was served at the Antelope Valley Country Club, at tables centered with fresh floral arrangements that were raffled off to help defray expenses.
