MARION —  The Sippican Woman’s Club 2019-2020 season begins on Sept. 13 with a popular program “The Fashions of Downton Abbey.” Karen Antonowicz, an expert in the field of Historic Costume and Textiles will give a presentation about the lives and fashions of the residents of Downton Abbey. Attendees will explore the styles of 1912 through the 1920s tracking the historical and fashion changes of the time. 

The program will be held at Handy’s Tavern, 152 Front Street, Marion. It begins at 12:30 p.m. with a finger food luncheon, followed by a short business meeting and program. Non-members are welcome for a $5 guest fee. New members are always welcome.

The Sippican Woman’s Club began in 1904, and has been operating for 115 years since. 

In the beginning, their focus was on nursing facilities, but in 1947 the focus of their philanthropic endeavors became scholarships for Marion students, which has continued for 72 years. This year, scholarships totaling $13,000 were awarded to 23 students.
