3rd Generation Member in Greater Sacramento #1032

Now that I came up with this spotlight format, guess I could do mine.

Active member:
Michele Spilman, 3rd generation

Any offices you held/hold in 20-30? Currently the President of Greater Sacramento #1032 and in my  6th year as USA & Canada National History Chair.  It’s fun to now be able to say I’m also a 3rd Generation Club President. A first for Greater Sacramento #1032. 

Relation, name, and what club were the other members of the family in? Did they hold any offices in 20-30? My grandfather, Carl Spilman, was a member of Sacramento #1. My grandmother, Helen, was a member of the Sacramento 20-30ettes and a president.

A cousin of my dad’s (Brian Holdener) was a member of Sacramento #1 and was his sponsor into the club.

My father, Craig Spilman, was a member of Sacramento #1, Man of the Year, and Past Active Life. My mother, Dale, was a member of the 20-30ettes and a president, Woman of the Year, Past Active Life, and managed the National Office for two years.

Any other noteworthy accomplishments? Big projects? Fun tidbits? They enjoyed National, International and WOCO conventions in Anaheim, Sacramento, Eugene Oregon, and Santo Domingo. Also enjoyed a WOCO tour in England/Scotland making many friends in the WOCO community.

My dad was known for his pyrotechnics in meetings to make announcements or just as surprises. Always fun!!If you are a generational member or know of someone who is, please contact me (I’d love to recognize and feature your history) – mchlspil@gmail.com

“We All Are Twenty-Thirtians” Song

Video

p1060328Did you know there is an official song of Active 20-30? Actually there is a whole songbook of songs. But this one first caught my interest a couple of years ago. Before I even came across the lyrics, I was talking 20-30 with my grandfather (Carl Spilman, a past member of Sacramento #1). He started singing a song that he said was always sung at meetings. I was lucky enough to catch him singing and record it on camera before he passed away.

Auburn #19 is the only club I know of that continues the tradition of singing this song at meetings.
