Annual May Banquet

New officers were sworn in at our Annual Installation Banquet held at Road House Grill. Our meals were delicious and we had a great time welcoming new members into the club and recognizing the dedication of all of our members.  A BIG Congratulations goes out to Ellee Massey who was nominated Woman of the Year!! We thank all of our members, their family, friends and all of the support we receive from the citizens, businesses, city and surrounding communities.
Our club was organized by a small group of women in 1958, who wanted to make a difference in their small town by focusing on the youth. Our fundraising efforts provide scholarships, school supplies, fun events, volunteer opportunities, food and gifts at Christmas. This tiny group ofwoman has grown tremendously and our annual celebration is a reminder to us all to stay true to ourselves and our mission, appreciate each other, help one another, and make that difference.
