BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – On Nov. 13, at 1:30 p.m. at the United Church on School Street, Bellows Falls Women’s Club members and guests will hear a presentation by librarian Justine Fafara of Bridge Memorial Library in Walpole, N.H. Non-perishable food and personal care items will be collected for the Fall Mountain Food Shelf.
The Oct. 9 meeting featured Lisa Muzzey speaking on the 4-H program. Lisa is the program director for Windham and Windsor counties. Using a PowerPoint presentation, she gave a detailed overview of the 4-H program, its philosophy, and of the many active 4-H clubs in this catchment area, highlighting a diverse set of interests. Participating in 4-H fosters leadership, responsibility, and many life skills in youth.
Two women were welcomed into the club and each received her General Federation of Women’s Clubs membership pin.
The business meeting included committee reports and updates on community activities. The recent dedication of the granite bench installed outside the Health Center at Bellows Falls was noted. This was the club’s community service project for 2016-2018. The club will add some landscaping effects around the bench. A food and bake sale was held Oct. 27 in conjunction with the Walpole Library’s book sale at Walpole Middle School. Proceeds support the club’s high school scholarship.
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 GFWC, which promotes volunteerism for community betterment.
