Fran Puig was installed as the 77th president of Metairie Woman’s Club recently at Metairie Country Club. The civic, social and philanthropic organization formed in 1939 to provide social engagement for women and to encourage development of educational values within the newly populated area of what is now Old Metairie.

The club bestowed its highest honor, Outstanding Woman of the Year, to Sue Rooney, a retired special-education teacher and past president of the club. The award is given for exemplary volunteer service within the community and to the club.
