Women Get Together to Keep Their Love for Organization Burning


Byline: Sena Krieg

Though today the organization is Camp Fire Boys and Girls, some of the "girls" still get together on their own.

Every six weeks Jolly's Restaurant in Lombard is the setting for a group of West suburban women who each have a minimum of 25 years association with the venerable group, as either a staff member, volunteer or both.

Jane Baird, a 43-year resident of Lombard, is a typical member of the breakfast group.

"All of us have a deep and abiding interest in Camp Fire, and we just naturally drifted together about 15 years ago. We've met every six weeks since with a maximum of nine attending," she said.

Included in the groups are Jane Baird, Ruthanne Baird, Elmhurst; Betty Bulk, Oak Brook; her daughter, Chris Walzer, Downers Grove; Sue Crowel, Villa Park; Faith LaVelle, Elmhurst; Ida Ochi, Naperville; Arlene Perry, Glen Ellyn and Elaine Wallinder, Villa Park.

The women were all members of the Greater DuPage Council of Camp Fire, which covered Northern DuPage County; the Salt Creek Council served the southern part. The two groups consolidated into the Illinois Prairie Council about four years ago.
