Catherine E. Strong contributed unselfishly of her time and leadership ability in the development of the City over the years, serving with distinction as Mayor in 1954, and as a member of the City Commission during the years of 1955, 1956, and 1957. Prior to serving as Mayor, Mrs. Strong was the City Clerk, and was an active participant in numerous committees to which she was appointed. Councilwoman Strong was a clear-thinking, outspoken and kindly woman. She is best known for her tireless efforts and ultimate success in defeating adoption of an ordinance segregating our beaches.

A year after her death in 1964, Bethesda Memorial Hospital had a special day to honor her tireless work for the hospital and her humanitarian interest in people of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

On March 8, 1964 Mrs. Strong was memorialized in a dedication ceremony for the former civic center which used to stand at this site.
