Support The Place of Forsyth’s 3rd Annual Hunger Awareness Lunch

Posted by The Place of Forsyth County on Tuesday, August 8, 2017

The Place of Forsyth County is presenting the 3rd Annual Hunger Awareness Lunch to increase awareness for the poverty in our own county and fight hunger.

Neighbors in our community don’t have enough food for their family. Many eat only canned food and never eat fresh products such as eggs or fresh fruits and vegetables. This important fundraiser will benefit the Food Pantry at The Place so that these fresh items can be provided for those in need.

The lunch will feature testimonials from clients from The Place who have been served by their programs and services. It will be an interesting and informative experience that will enlighten you to the many ways that your neighbors in Forsyth County have been served by The Place.

Ticket cost-$25.00 Please reserve a seat using the link below and pay at the door.

Thanks and hope to see you there!

Thank You SWC Members!

Education Department Update: April

The annual scholarship contest is well underway with the deadline for applications on Monday, April
17 coming right up. This is the date all completed applications should be returned to the high school
counseling offices or received in our club P.O. Box.

Club volunteers will pick up the applications shortly after that date. You will find the blank application form on our SWC website and also on the Shutterfly site if you need it. A date for volunteers to read the applications and select winners will be scheduled in late April/ early May. A separate announcement will be made for the reading date.

Thanks to those of you who have volunteered to pick up from the schools. I could still use a volunteer
for South Forsyth if anyone is interested!

FCSO Thanks SWC for Supporting Teen Interception Program (TIP)

The Club received this wonderful note from Cpl. Page Cash regarding our support of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Teen Interception Program:

Good Morning Carolyn and Sawnee Woman’s Club,

I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your presence, love, prayers and the cake that you provided at the Teen Interception Program. The teenagers as well as myself were very blessed by all that you did for them! Please let all of the ladies know that their presence makes a difference and allows these teenagers to see that they are important and that they have support from the community.

I can never thank you enough for all that you do!!!
