CROCKETT -- The Carquinez Women's Club celebrated its centennial with a May 1 luncheon that brought together nine past presidents at The Old Homestead "to reminisce, take pictures and enjoy lunch."

The club will host a gala Garden Tea and Vintage Fashion Show in September to celebrate its 100 years of volunteering, charitable work and support for community causes, including Napa State Hospital and John Swett High School, where the club makes donations and offers scholarships.

The club has also been in charge of management and maintenance of The Old Homestead, which was constructed in 1867 and is now a registered state historical landmark, for the past 40 years.
