Description

Members of the Burlington Vermont Supreme Cootiette Club of the United States No. 113 sit for a formal portrait. They sit on a stage with the club's banner to the left and the American flag to the right. A large Welcome sign hangs behind the women. Many wear the club vests and hats. The club is a voluntary, non-profit auxiliary women's club formed to offer support to veterans and families as part of the VFW. Clubs nationwide formed as early as 1930 with national headquarters in Sacramento, California. Women had to be at least 18 years of age. Photo 3. A 1940s date is partially visible on the banner along with Lincoln Club No. 113, Burlington, Vermont. Undated.
