BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – The Bellows Falls Woman’s Club will begin its 117th club year Sept. 11, with a meeting to be held at the United Church of Bellows Falls, School St., beginning at 1:30 p.m. Co-presidents for the biennium are Judy Boynton and Andrea Johnson. The program will be presented by Donna Dawson and Deb Brooks of Westminster Cares. Upon payment of dues, a program book will be provided.
Since disbanding in May for the summer months, the club presented its high school scholarship in the amount of $1,500 to Hannah Harlow, who is pursuing a degree in nursing.
Over the summer, the Executive Board met to plan programs, establish committees, and formulate a budget, which will be voted on at the September meeting. The club serves the area with donations to many agencies and organizations.
The local club is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs whose focus is domestic violence awareness and prevention. The federation promotes volunteerism for the betterment of communities and their citizens.
Women interested in joining the club and helping with its projects are welcome. The club meets on the second Tuesday of each month, from September through May, at the United Church, beginning at 1:30 p.m., unless otherwise noted.
