ORANGE COUNTY ALMANAC : Priscillas of Villa Park

August 25, 1995

In 1912, a group of Villa Park women founded the Modern Priscilla Club, named for a how-to magazine on handiwork. Members did needlework and held bridal showers and housewarmings.

During World War I and II, club members put together gift boxes for servicemen. In 1972, the few remaining members voted to disband.
