Early in each new membership year, the GWC Membership Committee hosts a special event to welcome our new Members. This year, our customary gathering in a home for lively fellowship and refreshing fare had to be replaced with a virtual plan.
“Greenwood Women Care…about you!” took place on the evening of Thursday, February 18. Our 11 new Members (as of mid-February) were celebrated with a festive box left on their doorsteps earlier in the day. Special thanks to Summer Booker, Nina Trent, Deb Maschoff, Rosemerry Franks, and Betty Adams for preparing and delivering these treat boxes!
Despite the distancing of everyone being in their own place, it was a warm, vibrant time together. Mary Woodiwiss and Laura Bachinski, GWC Co-Chairs, shared information about core values, structure, and other aspects of GWC. Attendees spent some time getting acquainted in online breakout rooms. Committee Chairs and Co-Chairs introduced the activities of each of the 6 standing committees and encouraged new members to participate. Those who presented on behalf of their Committees were: Catherine DiBenedetto, Rhonda McGinnis, Trentsie Williams, Summer Booker, Edris Louise Robinson, and Laura Bachinski.
We were all happy to see new and familiar faces and look forward to a great year together in GWC!
We welcome our 2021 new Members:
