BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Members of the Bellows Falls Women’s Club will meet Tuesday, Dec. 11, at the United Church of Bellows Falls, School St., beginning at 1:30 p.m. Dianne Potter will lead the group in doing a holiday craft project.
At the Nov. 13 meeting, Justine Fafara, head librarian at Bridge Memorial Library in Walpole, N.H., spoke on the current renovations to the library including the addition to the building. She also highlighted the many program offerings of the library.
Justine was accompanied by Gail LaHaise, library board member. Club members contributed several bags of non-perishable food and personal care items to the Fall Mountain Food Shelf. Brenda Purney was welcomed as a new member and she received her General Federation of Women’s Club’s membership pin from club Co-President Judy Boynton. Committees gave reports, and announcements of upcoming community events were made.
Members provided cookies for the Dec. 1 Rotary Club sponsored family movie and time with Santa. Other December activities include attendance at one of the Kurn Hattin holiday luncheons and concerts – either Dec. 13 or 21 – and assisting with Central School’s annual Shopping Day Dec. 19, by helping the children wrap the gifts they have chosen for their family members. Donations for the students’ Shopping Day may be dropped off at the school at any time or brought to the Dec. 11 women’s club meeting.
Area women interested in joining the club and helping with its many community outreach projects may contact Wendy O’Dette by email: email@example.com.
The local club is a member of the GFWC, whose signature project is domestic abuse prevention and awareness.
