Challenging Times - Ongoing commitment to our mission

Our club faces challenges with holding fundraising events at this time, but we've been able to fund the Live Your Dream scholarships for three women in our area and provide support and gift cards to organizations who are helping women and children at risk in our community.  We continue to look for ways to provide support and will let our creativity point us to new ways to raise funds until we can return to our typical fundraisers.

We are again looking for deserving women, heads of household, who are working to improve the lives of their families by obtaining additional education or training.  These awards are competitive and will be announced in the Spring, 2021.  Information on applications - see attached.
