The Woman's Club is in the midst of a celebratory year in honor of the 100th anniversary of our club's formation. In recognition of this milestone we are making many improvements to our historic building and property. Along with our "What's New for the Holiday's" event, our annual holiday raffle helps us raise funds to benefit our historic preservation efforts. For our raffle this year, we are offering a few unique items. An antique oak washstand with a serpentine front, c.1900, has been restored and donated to the Woman's Club by local craftsman, Jon Amacher. We will also have special Christmas trees decorated with cash and lottery tickets. These items will be on display at "What's New" and raffle tickets will be available for purchase. Tickets for these items will be available throughout the holiday season at club functions, the annual Christmas Walk, The Holly House Tour and at the annual BEI Vendor Fair in December. The drawing to award the winners of these items will be at the Dec. 14 Christmas dinner.
