OUR CLUB FUNDS SCHOLARSHIPS FOR HANEY VOCATIONAL TECHNICAL SCHOOL
Last fall, our Board identified $4260.55 earmarked for academic scholarships languishing in our budget. Times were when we held an essay competition and screened recipients. But time is of the essence now for so many women returning for training and often still working to make ends meet. So we agreed to forgo the formalities of the past and present it all to Haney VoTech to help Bay County women with funding to improve their work skills and their lives. Stephanie Cantrell, Merle Johnson and Jamie Shepard presented the “check” to Haney’s Execu-tive Director Ann Leonard just in time for registration!
HEALTH & WELFARE
Health & Welfare Department had a successful Christmas Bake Sale at the De-cember Luncheon. We netted $311, thanks to all the great cooks in our depart-ment. We had our Christmas covered dish luncheon on December 13, hosted by Rena Hammett at her beautifully decorated home, and finalized plans to host the January General Membership Luncheon.
The new flag proudly flying at the clubhouse was donated by Tami Michael. Our retired flag will be used for a project for the WWII Veteran's Valentine luncheon in February. We presented a check for $100 to the Historical Society, and our donation to the USO received triple matching donations. Nice that our donations could do so much good here at home and for our troops
