Celebrating Connections, May 2023

For the month of May, in which we celebrate our mothers, GWC wanted to celebrate the multi-generational family members among us. Nine of our members participate in GWC with their mother or daughter(s). Two are grandmother and granddaughter to each other and two are mother- and daughter-in-law.

It’s a delight to see these women find another meaningful connection as GWC members together!

What do they appreciate about GWC? Rachel Strayer and Rowan Pallis answered, “It’s a good feeling to know that at every gathering of this organization we’re each surrounded by people who walk the talk when it comes to caring about the world around them.” Debbie Coesens and Emma Grace Iseman observed, “GWC provides an outstanding example for learning, giving, and growing.” Tara Smith, who engages in GWC with her mother-in-law, Cindy Smith, reflected, “I am very proud to be a part of Greenwood Women Care, especially because it is comprised of a diverse group of women doing great things for our community. To be able to share that with one of the most important women in my life, my Mother-In-Law, is extra special.”

Why did they join GWC? Terri Bacon explained, “Carson (Penney) and I joined GWC to learn more about our new hometown, to find out where the needs were, who was meeting them, and how we could support them. GWC delivered on all these and continues to do so!” She added, “We hope Greenwood Women Care becomes a legacy organization for all kinds of women-to-women connections!” Peggy Adams and daughters Margaret Conrad and Courtney Christensen shared, “We love GWC’s dedication to a better community, the energy of the members, and the connections among members. We are excited to be part of Greenwood Women Care!” And Vickie Chandler and Susan Albon spoke for all of us when they remarked, “Because Greenwood is home.”

Happy Mother’s Day from Greenwood Women Care!
