General Meetings

April 15, 2021

We held a zoom meeting with a very entertaining and informative guest. Steve Overton spoke about his experiences as the consumer reporter on WFLA-TV “Eight On Your Side”.

March 18, 2021

The GFWC SCC Woman’s Club happily met at Bunkers Grill to have a luncheon outside.   Marge Hartig-Sprecht planned the terrific event for members and we had a wonderful time, talking, drinking and eating on a windy day.   Linda Raymond won the prize for Best Decorated Golf Cart and Marge won for Best Costume.  Lots of green was worn and many cheerful faces were seen. 

We discussed future plans for the club including a Zoom meeting in April, food drive in May, and especially resuming meetings in the fall (fingers crossed).  Our election for officers was being held through email and a reminder was given to vote.  Thanks to Marge for planning this outing and to Bunkers for providing quick and cheerful service.

Our monthly activity for February was a Charity Collection to benefit Haven of Hope of Hillsborough County. They requested that we collect gift cards or monetary donations. All the gift cards and monetary donations were given to Janet Smith, President of HOH Hillsborough by Marie Ruegar. We raised $1610!

For our monthly meeting, we met via Zoom and were joined by Robin Watt, Assistant Chief – PR of the SCC Emergency Squad. She spoke to members about how the Squad has been working during the pandemic.

December 3 – 4, 2020

On December 3rd and 4th we were finally able to hold our Outdoor Sale to raise funds for the charities which the club supports. This was originally planned to be held in March 2020 at SCC FunFest, but was cancelled due to Covid 19 pandemic. We raised about $2,200 – well worth all the hours and hard work by members. Linda Raymond and Kathy Jones were Co-Chairpersons whose diligent efforts made this a big success, and Linda even kept all the items collected for this sale at her house for almost a year.

November 19, 2020

We held an informative and entertaining Zoom meeting in November. In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote, we saw a short video on “Suffragists – The Fight to Vote.” And for entertainment, George Burns and Gracie Allen (played by Ed Brown and Jeanne Naish) made us laugh with their comedic antics.

October 15, 2020

This event replaced the typical general meeting and we were very successful in collecting items for the Food Pantry. We collected around 1,900 items valuing about $5,700, and $1,200 in monetary donations. The pantry filled 80 boxes with our goods, and added a package of frozen meat and a bag of fresh vegetables for each family. We were elated to be able to provide support to the food pantry.
