Community Service

Arts and Culture

Chairman: Nan Davis

Purpose: To encourage club members to further their own artistic development and to promote the arts throughout the community.

This program is responsible for the WWC arts festival held each year at the January business meeting. The members are in charge of promoting participation by club members, receiving arts and crafts, categorizing, and judging. In addition, the program is encouraged to include participation by local school-age children. After the local arts festival, the program members are responsible for getting all blue ribbon winners to the District 7 Arts Festival, held annually in February, and to the GFWC-NC Arts Festival in March. Locally, the program is encouraged to promote art projects in the community throughout the club year.
