Biographical/Historical Note: The Carleton Park Improvement Club was founded on March 25, 1924. The organization's October 11, 1932 meeting minutes note it "held its last meeting under that name." The next entry in the record book notes, "The first meeting of the reorganized Magnolia Community Club was held at the Magnolia School Tuesday evening Nov. 8th 1932." The exact relation of the Magnolia Bluff Improvement Club to the CPIC/MCC is unknown, but a January 7, 1926 Seattle Times article notes that the MBIC and CPIC selected a site on which to build a joint clubhouse.
