The Radcliff Woman’s Club general membership meeting was Feb. 10 at Colvin Community Center. The February program featured Lynette Kennedy, Hardin County School’s Outreach Liaison for Homeless and Transient Student population and their families.
Kennedy shared there are 81 students seeking assistance from all over Hardin County. The program provides a wide variety of aid including food, clothing, housing payment assistance, school supplies, transportation and more. Working with the school’s family resource office, the student’s needs, as well as their family’s needs, are assessed and a plan is formulated to help get them “back on their feet.” The emphasis is placed on meeting the need and preventing the situation in the future.
Venus Cornett and Judy Rains, representing Crossing Nation’s Together, informed members of its mission to provide dental services to the people in Cambodia. The organization was founded by three Hardin County women and hope to expand services in the future. They promised to update club members when they return from their upcoming trip.
The business portion of the meeting provided information on the upcoming Hosparus Tea on March 21, a Derby Dinner Playhouse trip on March 25 and the Red Cross Blood Drive from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. March 20, at Colvin Community Center. Reports were given on activities at the Hardin County Library North Branch, the Samaritan’s Purse Project and the Shot @ Life Project.
Members were reminded a shower for SpringHaven is scheduled for the March meeting.
The By-Laws Committee plans to submit its updates at the April meeting. Members were advised of the GFWC Kentucky 125th Annual Convention from March 26 through 28 in Lexington.
The club meets at 6:30 p.m. the second Monday of the month at Colvin Community Center in Radcliff. New members and guests are invited to attend.
