The Way it Was
"The Way it Was" was a book of recollections and research by the Fair Oaks Woman's Thursday
Club (established 1902) in 1976 and republished in 2008. It was designed in Word format and
has not easily translated into HTML. To get the document up on the website, we decided to
convert it to RTF format, a universal word processing format, and put it up by individual chapters.
Conveniently, this makes the book text searchable on your word processor and also on our
general website search engine. Many thanks to the Fair Oaks Woman's Thursday Club for
giving us permission to put it on the website.
