Even though the Woman’s Club of Windsor doesn’t meet during the summer months, the Civic Engagement Community Service Program completed its first project last week, a week before the first meeting of the new club year.
A sign was placed on the lot between Route 460 and Church Street with lots of American flags around it to commemorate the 21st anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001.
“We remember the many people who lost their lives that day and also honor the many who tried to save them,” said club member Mary Lee Willis. “It was a very tragic day and one we will never forget. God Bless America!”
The Woman’s Club of Windsor meets at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month between September and May at the Windsor Ruritan building.
The club of Windsor was founded in May 1930.
“Our goals in 1930 were the same as today: to promote the civic, cultural, educational and social welfare of our community, to join with other club women to make a difference outside of our community and to provide fellowship for our members,” Willis said.
The Woman’s Club of Windsor is part of the Southside District of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of Virginia (gfwcvirginia.org) and of The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (gfwc.org), which is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.
