A GRAND ACTIVE WESTLAKE WOMEN’S CLUB VOLUNTEER
- BEVERLIE ELAINE KIRKPATRICK -
PRESIDENT IN 2000-2001 AND 2018-19
Beverlie Kirkpatrick was instrumental in setting up a women’s bridge club for the wives of the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Long Island, where her husband Dave worked; and which also taught scientists’ wives how to invest money, which became the framework for the first chapter of the League for Women Voters. In this role Beverlie met Eleanor Roosevelt and attended the first session of the United Nations.
In 1956 the family moved to Whittier, California where Beverlie worked as a registered nurse, volunteer fundraiser for the Heart Association and organized Red Cross training programs. Beverlie Kirkpatrick also completed her Master’s degree in Health Education and taught until 1991. In 1987 the family moved to Westlake Village, where Beverlie volunteered for thirty-five years for the Westlake Women’s Club, Heart Association, Red Cross and the Reagan Library.
Thank you for all your years of leadership and caring for the Westlake Women’s Club!!!
