Meeting and Luncheon
Bedford Hills Community House
11:00am Board Meeting/11:30am General Meeting

If you have not had a Covid test and have not had the COVID vaccinations, you must wear a mask during our meetings to protect others.

If you have not already done so, please send your lunch check of $15 (made out to The Bedford Hills Women’s Club) to Kathleen Towey before December 9th.

Everyone: Please call Kathleen (232-1012) to let her know if you will or will not be attending the meeting so she can get an accurate headcount for lunch.

As noted in the last Briefs, our Annual Fund Raiser will be held on May 10th at the Mt. Kisco Country Club. Volunteers are needed. Please let Karen Hanratty (203-964-1554) know if you can volunteer. Profits go toward 5 scholarships in the amount of $1500 to Fox Lane seniors.  

Don’t forget our friends at the Correctional facilities. We are still collecting soap and personal items. You can let Joanne or Lorraine know if you have anything to donate.

​Our guest this month will be Town Supervisor-Elect Ellen Calves.

We will also hold our annual Boutique and Bake Sale. Put on your aprons and start baking! Clean out those closets and donate unused items to the Boutique. This is another way we are able to build our funds for charities.  

Marie Scarsella will be collecting for the Westchester Exceptional Children’s School. She will leave a basket for donations on the table.

President Joanne Rosamond will select a Chair for the Nominating Committee at the January meeting. We will also hold our annual Potluck luncheon. Everyone looks for forward to those yummy dishes.

Celebrating 95 Years of Service
Recently one of our members came across the BHWC song.  We would like to share it with you.

(to be sung to the tune of 'Flow Gently Sweet Afton')

1.  Come, Woman's Club members! and let us all sing
     A song of our Club and the joy it can bring!
     From what it is giving to us, we can guess
     The secret of living - 'Tis true friendliness!

     Like the ripple that widens the farther it goes,
     Our Club is a circle that ravels and grows -
     Till its power for good shall reach shores yet unknown,
     and friends yet unseen we shall have for our own.

2.  And strong while united, our circle will be;
     That wrong shall be righted, or evil go free
     Depends upon whether or not 'til a whole
     Firm ring, that together, can work for one goal.

     For in righting the wrong, still of this be we sure;
     That each link must be strong, that the circle endure.
     When each member is firmly a link in the chain
     There need be no limit to what we attain!

3.  Our Club is a circle - (a circle ne'er ends!)
     The farther it broadens, the more be our friends!
     And out of our blessings now, so may we bless!
     For the secret of living is just friendliness!

     Like the ripple that widens the farther it goes, 
     Our Club is a circle. While larger it grows,
     May friendship keep growing, as friend needs new friend,
     As a circle, set going, has never an end!
