Letter From The President

Becky Travis


As we begin another club year lets recommit ourselves to planting seeds that will flower in our community. Care and kindness has always been both the root and the fruit of the work of St. Andrews Woman’s Club and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs.

As we look forward to celebrating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote, let’s remember the work of the women who won us that right.  The Suffragettes campaigned for the vote on the premise that women are the natural protectors of the community.  Our work through the CSPs reflects that desire to care for children and the environment, the importance of the Arts and of our individual and collective commitment to the public good, a civil society and international peace.   I am looking forward to working with the board and every member to continue and grow our new Fundraising traditions including Belk Charity Sales, the Bunko FUNdraiser, Town Theater and the adventures of our Saucy Audacious Women Cavorting and to identifying new ways to make a difference in our community.

As clubwomen, we have enormous shoes to fill but with the fellowship and support of each member of the SAWC we can individually and collectively plant seeds that will continue to flower in the future.  Let’s each of us renew our commitment to each other in the St. Andrews Woman’s Club this year and to the work that brings us together.
