June Meeting
June 19, 2018
 
The program for our June meeting was Erica Jones, founder of Harmony's Breath in Beckley.  This is an organization dedicated to helping women cope with miscarriage and infant loss, which was inspired by the loss of her first baby.  The group meets at least once a month at One Vioce on S. Kanawha St. and has grown considerably since first started.

  The program for the May meeting was Jerry Godfry dressed as Alfred Beckley.  He talked about Wildwood House and Founder's Day, which would be coming up soon.  He was most interesting and also played the piano for us.

April Meeting
April 17, 2018
 
Following a light supper, Mr. Glen Haga from Haga's Farm in Sophia presented the program on Bees.  He has been doing beekeeping for 30 years and sells his honey locally.  Everyone there was quite interested and asked a lot of questions.  We ended with a business meeting and made plans to sell fruit sticks at Sweet Treats on May 12th.

March Meeting
March 20, 2018
 
The ladies of the Woman's Club met at the clubhouse for a potluck supper on this first day of Spring.  Since March is Youth in the Arts month, we had a small group of talented students from an area school sing and play instruments.  They were amazing!  On display were winning arts & crafts items that our members had submitted for judging at the State Convention.  A business meeting followed the program.
