The Gab Club 1930-1999
My Mother co-founded a "girls club" n New Haven and environs called The Gab Club that met once a month for 55 years (69 in all after my mother's death). The same dozen girls met, served a fancy dessert on their best china and decked-out table and gabbed for three hours on a Tuesday night every month at a different member's house. Occasionally they added new members. They raised their families, became grandmothers and widows and divorcees, shared their joys and sorrows, and buried each other.
