FOLSOM WOMEN'S SERVICE CLUB

Folsom Women's Service Club

Our mission is to raise funds to provide college scholarships to graduating seniors attending public high schools in Folsom.

ACTIVITIES

Members are encouraged to share their interests and accomplishments, as well as strengthen new friendships, by participating in any of our special interest group activities.

The CRAFTERS group meets the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month at 1:00 until 3:00 and we have a brown bag lunch before the meeting at 12:30. We meet at the Folsom Senior Center.  The group can learn to make crafts, knitted and crocheted items, jewelry, ceramics, wall hangings, paintings, Christmas decorations, and other craft techniques to sell at the Annual Craft, Bake and Plant Sale. The club depends heavily on this sale for funding scholarships and other community service projects.

The GARDEN FOODIES (Formerly Garden Friends) meets on the 4th
Thursday of each month (except November and December) at the homes of its members. They share gardening tips, food, and recipe information and sometimes samples.  They do yearly luncheons out and may take field trips to local points of interest.  They contribute to the Annual Craft, Plant, and Bake Sale, and to the Fashion Show by selling plants, floral arrangements and food items.

The BOOK LOVERS group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at the homes of its members.  Favorite books are voted on by the members to select a list of 12 finalists for the year. They review and have lively discussions of their monthly selections at their meetings.  They also oversee the "Books for Bucks" collection of gently used, donated books to raise monies for the club's scholarship fund. Books scheduled for review are:  October--"Year of Wonder" by Geraldine Brooks; November--"The Paris Book Shop" by Nina George; December-- "The Christmas Clue" by Delores Fossen.

For those interested in playing bridge, we have a BRIDGE BUDDIES group. 

We meet 1st & 2nd Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. at various members' homes.

If interested, email us via our Contact Us page; or call Norma at 983-0612 for more information.
