GFWC Woman's Wednesday Club of Granbury

GFWC Woman's Wednesday Club of Granbury GFWC Woman's Wednesday Club of Granbury is a private woman's club founded in 1897 which continues to be involved in charitable and educational works.

Excerpts from BRIEF HISTORY OF GFWC WOMAN'S WEDNESDAY CLUB OF GRANBURY, INC. written by Vircy Macatee - November 22, 1999 The Woman's Wednesday Club was organized in 1897. During the year 1899-1900 the Club became a Federated Club. Members answered roll call with some item of interest concerning current event, a country, the Bible, women, or quotations; and a paper was given on an item of interest to women, some of which required considerable research. they always had music or a reading which gave a cultured atmosphere. In 1902-03 the motto "Step by step we gain the heights" was adopted. In 1906-07 the club flower was designed as the violet and the club colors violet and white. The Club has been consistent with their programs being subjects of international, national, state or local interest; patriotic; cultural, either in literature or the arts; improvement of home and family life; or other educational subjects. Special emphasis has always been given in October to State and General Federation and to Texas in March because it is Texas Independence Month. Club projects have included improvement to the community by landscaping school grounds, a "Don't Spit On The Sidewalk" campaign; participating in the town's centennial celebration; the cemetery; sponsoring a girl to Girl's State; gifts to patients in local and state hospitals; landscaping the courthouse lawn; supporting the library and senior citizen center.

The holiday season is particularly stressful for those who deal with the victims of abuse and neglect. To ease some of that burden "WooHoo Wednesday" luncheons were scheduled during the month of December to brighten the holidays for the caseworkers and staffers of Child Protective Services and the Rainbow Room.

In conjunction with the Hood & Somervell Counties Rainbow Room "Adopt A Caseworker" program which partners members of the community with Child Protective Services caseworkers and the families they serve, CPS caseworker Marla Hill was adopted by the Wednesday Club in April 2015; Marla coordinated the WooHoo Wednesday luncheon with the Woman's Wednesday Club.

On December 9, 2015 several members of the Woman's Wednesday Club of Granbury fed approximately 25 staffers and caseworkers at one of these luncheons held in the beautifully decorated conference room at the CPS facility.

The following is a July 18, 2015 Hood County News article regarding JEANELL MORRIS, Honorary Life Member of the Woman's Wednesday Club of Granbury. Jeanell was a lovely lady who did so much for her church and her community and who will be missed by so many.

JEANELL MORRIS REMEMBERED FOR HER LOVE OF GRANBURY

Retired Hood County Librarian Jeanell Morris saw the heart of Granbury from a unique perspective.
“Jeanell knew downtown Granbury more intimately than anyone because she didn’t own a car and walked everywhere,” said Linda Somervill.
Morris, longtime Granbury resident, died early Tuesday.
She was 81.
Service is 11 a.m. Friday, July 24 at First Presbyterian Church.
“If she wasn’t here (downtown) once a week, she was three or four times,” Granbury artist Cynthia James said. “She was a big supporter of the merchants on the square.”
Morris was librarian from 1974-2004 and a former member of the Granbury City Council.
“I think she came to every Gallery Night and every Girls Night Out on the square,” James added. “She bought home decor, her jewelry and her clothes on the square.”
Morris was known for her impeccable style, wearing trendy clothes and jewelry.
Elise Techentine, local artist, remembers seeing Morris at least once a day walking somewhere.
“I loved her colorful clothes, and I knew it was Jeanell walking from blocks away,” Techentine said. “I always stopped to chat for a moment. What a treasure she was. Such a rich family history in Granbury and Hood County, and I loved her Facebook posts!”
STRONG CONNECTIONS
Morris volunteered as docent for First Presbyterian Church during the Candlelight Tour.
“She loved to point out the place in the ceiling where the old stove pipe used to be and where the Sunday school classes met,” Somervill recalled.
When she reminisced about her library career she always told about the children and the stories she shared with them.
“That was her delight,” Somervill explained.
After being raised in Fort Worth, Morris attended school in Chicago, obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Christian Education and went on to work as a Christian Education Director for several years in numerous places around Texas before moving back to Granbury.
“Her faith was most prominent in her daily life,” Somervill noted.
Ventriloquist and entertainer Nancy Burks Worcester remembers meeting Morris shortly after she arrived in Granbury.
“I came to Granbury as summer stock at Opera House,” Burks Worcester said. “She was probably the first person I met outside of the theater.
“Jeanell was really instrumental in setting up the story-telling festival for children in the mid-1990s. She was so great to help us set that up.”
ROCK STAR
“When Jeanell came on City Council she was like a rock star,” said former mayor David Southern. “Everyone knew her, and she had part of the library named for her. She brought a real sense of history because she was a second-generation native Granburian, and we had not had any native on the council in awhile.” Southern said Morris had a “real sense of fairness for everyone.”
Retired pastor Charles Somervill recalls Morris as a “real champion” for those less fortunate.
“We both had a passion for benevolence, and she spoke out loud and strong at our officers’ meetings. I loved her for that.
“I miss her very, very much.”
