Caby Froman Club holds meeting a Churchill Downs

-A A +A

Ellen van Nagell hosted the Aug. 2 meeting of the Caby M. Froman Club at the Derby Café located in the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs.

Members and guests enjoyed a lovely luncheon and were off to “The Greatest Race” film in the round. This was followed by a private guided tour entitled “Behind the Scenes at Churchill Downs.” The tour of the facility was complete with anecdotes of each area.  It was a beautiful day and the tour was most appropriate for their yearly study of “Thoroughbred Horse Racing in Kentucky”. 

The club had a send-off dinner for member Lonnie Sundermeyer on Aug. 10 at Jewell’s in Warsaw, Ky.

Lonnie and her husband Bob are leaving this community to grace a Georgia town and to be near some of their family and former neighbors.

The dinner was a very small way of thanking Lonnie for everything she has brought to the organization as well as expressing what all her friendship has meant to each member of the club. 

The next meeting of the group will be Friday, Sept. 7 at the home of Mrs. Sandra Thomas in Ghent, Ky.
