GFWC September Meeting with Guest Speaker
The GFWC Taunton and Raynham Junior Woman's Club gathered in person at the Silver Platter Restaurant at Bristol Plymouth High School for their first fall meeting on Monday the 13th.
The women were happy to reconnect and enjoyed a talk from guest speaker James Vought, M.A, author of Puppy Tales and Puppy Tales II. These books use stories to test and teach children cognitive empathy and dealing with their emotions. Jim is an Intensive Care Coordinator for Community Counselling of Bristol County in Taunton.
Members also participated in a club Calendar fundraiser during the month of August with funds going to the GFWC Women's History and Resource Center in Washington DC
Several of the women are preparing to attend the GFWC New England Regional Conference this year, which is being hosted by GFWC Massachusetts, and is being held at the Doubletree Hilton in Westborough.
