Elizabethton Woman’s Club making plans for busy year8:40 am | September 15, 2013
The GFWC of Tennessee Elizabethton Woman’s Club started a new year with a very full business meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 3, at the fellowship hall of First United Methodist Church.
The first order of business was to conclude plans for an outing to Jonesborough for lunch and the storytelling of fabulous Donald Davis on Wednesday, Oct. 2. Those attending will meet in the parking lot of First United Methodist Church at 10:30 a.m. for carpooling.
The big business of continuing to organize matters for the second annual Arts and Crafts Show was a main event. The craft show will be held Nov. 8-9 at the Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Center, 300 W. Mill St. Hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Applications are still being accepted, and may be obtained at the Elizabethton/Carter County Public Library or Robin’s Nest. Call Brenda Holdren at 543-1046 or Jo Voigt at 542-9109 and an application will be mailed to you.
Other business consisted of planning for the other projects on the calendar. The Lap Robe project will proceed as previous years; a new project begun last year of hats for cancer patients will continue as will the club’s association with Little Milligan Elementary School.
New projects which will be undertaken are contests for poetry and short story writing in selected schools and grades. It is hoped that this will become an annual enterprise. Another new project will be “The Shirts Off Our Back” consisting of totes assembled and filled with personal necessities for Appalachian women.
Put all of this together and the club has a very busy year ahead — and that’s not all.
The club’s next meeting will be Monday, Oct. 7, at 2 p.m. at First United Methodist Church. Anyone wishing to attend is more than welcome.
