This special event, is now three years ago, October 13, 2018. What a great day it was for our club as host! 95 Virginia Northern District General Federated club woman attended from 17 different clubs. The guest speaker that day gave us a first hand account of trafficking in her own family, so powerful. The District went on to host other events about trafficking even our own club. The Tea Party theme was a huge success too-Delicious Food that all enjoyed. This Saturday, we will once again come together, but not on ZOOM but in person for the 2021 Fall District meeting...we are looking forward to seeing old friends and hopefully making some new ones!

Wonderful article about our Bike Program for young ones...
One correction some members who tend our raised beds at the clubhouse, have planted seeds to grow food, for the local food pantry too!

Instead of planting vegetable seeds, The Woman's Club of Arlington is planting good safety seeds on rules of the road.

Fun APRIL 1st Meeting, no joke! (Could not resist). Thanks to Sandy Newton, we learned how to make Washi eggs, using beautiful papers and, had other crafting material (even silk neckties) for other ways one can decorate eggs. Sadly missed the last demo of shaving cream, with drops of food dye to make a marbleized pattern on eggs ( must dry thoroughly for minimum of 30 minute!).

WCA hosted the community forum on “Not Just Someone Else’s Problem” on Human Trafficking on March 7th. Good turnout, great presentation by nationally honored, William Wolf III, the head of JustAsk.Org , the leading trafficking education, Virginia based nonprofit. Their goal with community support is to educate to increase prevention. Lots of interesting questions especially to the presenter Mom of a High School victim as well as a trafficking victim who spent years, being abused.

Wonderful meeting today! It was special to donate 98 small pillows to the little mended hearts organization in person to Mom representatives.
To hear one of the Moms moved to almost tears of gratitude for the work we do to support them made the members who cut, stitch, and stuff them, feel very proud.
Lunch hosts Sandy and Cathy provided extra treats- The Mardi Gras King Cakes delicious (baby Jesus’s we’re removed, so no chocking) . Lunch was followed by a special presentation by member Bonnie Mangan on: “Women and the Civil War”. Bonnie is an avid, dedicated researcher on the Civil War and many of us left with new takeaway knowledge.
