Cornelia Cook Menefee Junior League YMCA Service France 1918
In 1980 this photo was published on the cover of the Junior League's Cascades cover with the note: "In remembering our Seventy Significant Years, our cover photo shows Miss Cornelia Cook pictured in Nice, France, in 1917, where she did canteen work during World War 1. As a Junior Leaguer from Portland, Oregon, she went to France to "Dance with the Boys." Miss Cook, later Mrs. Menefee, is our only living Charter member"
At the end of World War I, Cornelia and other young women went to Nice in France. They helped entertain soldiers who were waiting to be sent home to the states. Later she returned to Portland where she joined the Junior League and became it's second president.
