Arley Women’s Club Summer Summit August 14

ARLEY - The Arley Women’s Club is gearing up for a new season, and is looking forward to receiving lots of community support.
The AWC Summer Summit will be held in the Meek Baptist Church fellowship hall at 11 a.m. Monday, Aug. 14.  Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. for a time of fellowship and to greet new members.
At the Summer Summit, the club’s more than 20 committees will be discussed and members will be able to sign up for those, as well as for other volunteer opportunities.
While it is the first monthly membership meeting after a summer break, interested non-members may attend.
Incoming Vice President Beth Sargent said attending this meeting would give newcomers a good overview of the AWC and its activities.
“The Summer Summit will be a great way to see our club in action!” she said. Light refreshments will be served.
Along with Sargent, the club also has a new president.  Laurie McGriff will be at the helm of the AWC for the next two years and is working on a wonderful vision for the club’s continued success and philanthropy.
The AWC’s Kick-Off Meeting and Luncheon will follow on Monday, Sept. 11.   The exact time and location for the meeting will be given in an upcoming article.
“We’d love to have potential new members visit and see what we are all about,” Sargent said.
