The Woman’s Club of Cumberland, GFWC started planning for a Juniorette club in August of 2012. Club Members formed an advisory board, met with the school principal, and searched for a teacher advisor. The teacher advisor planned interest meetings with girls aged 12 – 18. Almost all the girls were middle school age with one exception. The club members and interested students started meeting after school in the teacher’s classroom. One concern would be transportation – but that was taken care of through the 21st Century Grant, which provided after school buses for the last school year and next school year.
The girl’s nominated officers and they were installed late spring. There Bylaws have been approved by the State Parliamentarian. The club is currently working towards becoming Federated by GFWC. This will be done in the near future. They have participated in the Christmas Mother, Christmas Parade, Adopt A Highway, and Patriot Day. They pay dues and hold fundraisers. The Young Ladies of Cumberland are working on the Christmas Mother program and the Christmas Parade for 2013. They are giving back to the community and school and are a shinning example of our school students. The Woman’s Club of Cumberland and Alice Kyle District are very proud of them.
