Recent Activities
Snapshots from November highlight our Annual Gift Wrapping Event held November 21, 2019, at Benedict's Plantation in Mandeville. Ladies who gathered that morning were surprised with a delicious breakfast generously donated by another organization. We conducted a short business meeting and had fun wrapping numerous gifts members donated to support our four 2019 Community partners.

Following the morning event, several members were able to extend their time together that day by sharing lunch at Keith Young's Steakhouse in Mandeville.
