go into the club’s general fund. $12 was raised this month and Regina won the basket.
B. Programs - We began discussion on what programs we would be interested in having as a club. April is National Child
Abuse Prevention Month and we will have a guest speaker at the April meeting to talk about Child Abuse, as well as Elder Abuse.
It was also suggested that we have Clemson University’s Marcia Barker come speak to our club.
C. Projects - We discussed different projects we could sponsor. The Clemson Community Clinic was suggested. Julia McBride
and Stephanie Moore will look into this. Meals on Wheels was also suggested.
D. Baby Shower - We will have a “baby shower” at the May meeting. The baby shower is for our club as a symbol
of the birth of a new club. Members from area GFWC clubs will be invited to attend our baby shower. The officers will also
get installed at the May meeting. Regina will talk with the Daily Messenger and see if they can attend the meeting so we can
have an article in the paper about our new club.
