SOL #10 active women's club

My sister and I belong to a local women's club. It was formed back in 1959. Only a couple of the founding members are still living. My mother-in-law was a founding member. One lady who was a founding member gave the devotional and led us in prayer at our monthly meeting tonight. The club members range in age from 85 to 30. Some are great grandmothers, others are grandmothers, while the youngest members have children in Kindergarten. I think this range of ages makes the club feel authentic. It really is a tight knit group. Tonight secret pals were revealed and hugs were seen all around the room. 

Business consisted of donating books to the Head Start, making Easter Baskets for children who are in the Children's Home, and donating to Project Graduation. One last item was to agree on a money making project. It was decided to sell homemade ice cream at the annual car show.

For the past two months we have been trying to schedule an outing for the entire group. The older members want to attend if someone else will drive. That works out perfectly because we have enough younger women to drive. We finally selected a play at a college one hour away. We plan to leave early in the day so the ladies can shop, have dinner, then attend the play. 

This group seems to focus on the needs of community. It makes me proud to be part of such an organization.
