FEBRUARY NEWS…It’s February, share the love y’all!! As we continue to distance ourselves from 2020, I’m pretty sure we could all use a little more love, romance and chocolate. Although February 14th is
Valentines’ Day, the day designated to celebrate our love with that special person, February is also noted as the month of Love and Romance. They say love heals all things. Hopefully, it will help our country in its recovery. Peace, Love & God Bless America!!
*FOOD BANK - Speaking of sharing the love, a wonderful group of ladies from the Woman’s Club volunteered at the Jasper County
Community Food Bank on five separate occasions over the holiday months. Huge shout-out to Hannah Powell, Anne Tria, Dorothy Cedars, Teresa Jobe, Nancy Witt, Denise Prater, Deneal Emerson, Terry and Marie Wynn and Roxanne Potts Reagin who not only assisted with the regular distribution, they also prepared over 800 bags for the Thanksgiving and Christmas distribution. The food bank has an urgent need for volunteers on Thursday of each month. Volunteers are needed
inside on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Thursday from 9:00-1:30 and on the 3rd Thursday from 10:00-1:00 (inside) and
1:00-4:30 (outside). In response to this need, the Woman’s Club will be seeking volunteers on an
on-going basis. If you would like to volunteer regularly or just occasionally, please contact Nancy Witt at
firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
