During the General Federation of Women’s Club of North Carolina (GFWC-NC) Statesville Woman’s Club’s January meeting the theme was “A New Year, A New You!” Club members Tammy Kennedy and Roxanne Kennedy led a Chair Yoga session and healthy snacks were provided.

The annual Arts Festival with Clubwomen crafts and photography were displayed. The winners were: Crafts, Cross Stitch - Linda Lavinder. Crafts, Crochet - Linda Lavinder. Clubwoman Photography “The World In Pictures,” first place winners for: Our World Up Close - Rita Tondo; Natural Wonders - Rita Tondo; and Reflections - Lee Ann Sherrill. These winners will now go on to District II competition, on Saturday, February 18 in Hickory.

The Club’s 2023 Sallie Southall Cotten Scholarship competition took place prior to the Festival. Trinity Webb from North Iredell High School was winner of the $1,000.00 award. Trinity is from Harmony and the daughter of Marcus and Jennifer Webb. She will also compete on February 18 for the Sallie Southall Cotten District II Scholarship.

The project focus for January will be an Epiphany food collection. Epiphany (which started on Friday, January 6) is celebrated as the day the three wise men arrived to meet the newborn Jesus. They brought gifts to celebrate him. Let us celebrate and share a bit of our own abundance with those who do not have. Please plan to bring canned goods or shelf stable food products to the clubhouse. These will be donated to a local food pantry.
