Accomplishments in 2006-2007

 

In ‘2006, the West Haven Junior's had a very successful year.  They donated $100.00 of food to the local WHEAT distribution center.  Once a month the women conduct a BINGO night for the men and women in the Blind Unit at the West Haven VA which is lead by a long time member of the Women’s Club, Carole.  During November, Carole conducts aThanksgiving dinner for the Blind Unit and several of the women from the club help to prepare this delicious meal.  In addition, the club provided the Men's Homeless Shelter in New Haven with a delicious hot meal one Saturday a month (this has been an ongoing event for the Women's club for over 30 years thanks to a devoted member Betty).  The members of the club joined forces and donated over $1400.00 in gifts at Christmas to the men consisting of hand made scarves, hats, socks, bars of soaps and holders, flip flops for the shower stalls, etc.  Every year the Women's Club conducts a Christmas Dutch Auction to raise money to provide WHEAT with more food, and sponsor local children/families in need and in ‘2006, they raised over $1,900.00.  Overall, the Women's Club is devoted and dedicated into making the community a better place.  Check back for additional information and updates.
