BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – The January meeting of the Bellows Falls Women’s Club will be held Tuesday, Jan. 8, at the United Church on School Street, beginning at 1:30 p.m. Dr. Walter Griffiths will present a program on women’s mental health issues.
For reporting purposes, club members are reminded to turn in their volunteer hour recording sheets or a listing of total volunteer hours spent in a wide range of club-sanctioned areas during 2018.
The December meeting of the club featured a craft project of making a cone decoration or bird feeder, led by Dianne Potter. A new flag, pole, and stand have been purchased by the club with donated money. The club has donated the flag ensemble to the church.
Other December activities included providing cookies for the Rotary Club sponsored family movie and visit with Santa, attending one of the two concerts and luncheons at Kurn Hattin and making a donation to the school, and helping the children at Central School wrap the presents they chose for their family members. As in past years, club members decorated the waiting room at the Health Center for the holidays. The club made donations to the police department’s Angel Project and to the Rockingham Christmas Fund.
Women interested in joining the club and helping with its projects may contact Wendy O’Dette at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The local club is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, which promotes volunteer service to communities and their citizens.
