The club was founded in 1936 "to foster interest in the development of the cultural, physical, and civic life of the community."
More than 80 members attended the gala event which recognized the 19 past presidents who were in attendance for their service to the community.
The evening also included a short business meeting during which a slate of new officers was elected for the 2016-17 program year. Current Belle Haven Women's Club President Burson Snyder congratulated the incoming President Alison Christmas.
