The first meeting of the Cedar Key Woman’s Club’s 2016-2017 service season started off with a bang! Leading the charge was First Vice-President Eileen Senecal, standing in for President Jane Moore and heading up a new roster of Woman’s Club officers.
With unanimous approval, the CKWC fired off several generous contributions to help fund ongoing community needs. The Community Relief Fund received a donation of $500, the money going to assist people with gasoline cards and, at times, the occasional utility bill. Ken Young gratefully accepted the check from Woman’s Club members Susan Hollandsworth, Susan Rosenthal, and Eileen Senecal. Also, the CKS High School Girls Basketball Team, running short of necessary equipment and supplies, was awarded $500 to provide shoes, shin splints, and therapeutic bandages and tape. Coach David welcomed the contribution presented by Eileen Senecal on behalf of the Lady Sharks. Not to overlook the little ghosts and ghoolies, Wayne Watson, the driving force behind Cedar Key Halloween Night, happily received a Woman’s Club donation for $100 toward treats for the Trick-or-Treaters.
There is no trick in treating local needs with concern and compassion. The Cedar Key Woman’s Club remains dedicated to the youth, the community, and the overall welfare of our island home.
