Club Notes

Wake Forest Woman’s Club Day

During the Wake Forest’s Board of Commissioners meeting April 17, Mayor Vivian Jones read aloud a proclamation designating April 24 as Wake Forest Woman’s Club Day.

The volunteer organization is celebrating 50 years of service to its community. The proclamation noted the club’s role in the establishment of a public library in Wake Forest and in the restoration of the Calvin Jones House and support of the Wake Forest College Birthplace Museum. Club members aspire to better their community through projects in the areas of arts, conservation, education, home life, international outreach and public issues.

The proclamation will be on display through June 30, along with artifacts dating back to the club’s founding, in the Fidelity Bank lobby on White Street in Wake Forest. For more information, go to wake-forest-womans-club.com or email wakeforestwomansclub@gmail.com.
