The Hardin County Democratic Woman’s Club held its last meeting of 2012 on Dec. 3. President Debbie Donnelly recognized elected officials and dignitaries in attendance. Donnelly gave the devotion on “The Candy Cane”. Magistrate Roy Easter gave the prayer and blessing of the food. Everyone enjoyed the holiday dinner prepared by Mona Stiles.
Following dinner, the Ways and Means committee awarded door prizes donated by Susie Westover, Julie Smith, Winnie Townsend, Debbie Donnelly, Regina Lancaster and Betty Jackson. Winners were Portia Petties, Diane Nall, Jimmie Lee, Lisa Parrett, Tony Bishop, Bob Moore, Susie Westover, Jean Dudgeon and Winnie Townsend.
Magistrate Roy Easter presented a Kentucky Colonel Certificate to Hardin County Circuit Clerk Loretta Crady for all the work she does locally and statewide. Hardin County Attorney Jenny Oldham will get her award at a later date as she was unable to attend.
Donnelly recognized various committee members for 2012 and thanked them for a job well done. Donnelly read an email from Ways and Means Chairperson Julie Smith who couldn’t attend. She apologized for not being in attendance but thanked everyone for bringing snack crackers and pudding cups for the backpack program. She also thanked members who helped serve dinner at the Mission Hope for Kids. She asked for volunteers to help assemble snacks for the backpack program from 5 to 7 p.m. Jan 10 at Feeding America. In February, the club will collect items, laundry products, paper towels, and toilet paper, for Springhaven.
Hardin County District Judge John Simcoe addressed the club briefly and then installed the new officers for 2013: President Julie Smith, not in attendance but Debbie Donnelly stood in for her, First Vice President Dorothy Leonard, Second Vice President Lisa Parrett, Secretary Susie Westover, Treasurer Becky Bishop and Auditor Diane Nall.
First Vice-President Lisa Parrett presented outgoing President Donnelly with a gift of appreciation from the club for all of her work and dedication.
The club will take a winter break and the next meeting is Feb. 4.
