A Spirit of Change: Honoring 50 Years of The Center Club

As part of the 50th Anniversary Celebrations, we commissioned Joan Jacobson, formerly of the Baltimore Sun, to research and write a detailed account of the Club’s deeply rooted history. A huge thanks goes to 50th Anniversary Committee member Laura Perry for all of her hard work as editor of this special piece.

We were very pleased with the finished product and hope you were too. If you did not receive your copy at the Gala or in the mail, please contact Stephanie Colao at scolao@centerclub.org
