Yes, it’s a triple.

2012- Has the dubious honor of being Sanger Women’s Club’s 100th Anniversary, and the 100th Anniversary of Sanger Women’s Clubs Historical Clubhouse! The City of Sanger will be sharing the celebration, as the City’s 100th Anniversary was in 2011. Combining the three birthdays will make for a wonderful event in Sanger.
