Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott Happenings!

Junior Women's Club

Welcome to Summer! Even though summer time is a time for vacations and picnics we are extremely busy preparing for our next service year.

Last month we hosted the Roseanne Barratt, Teen and Youth awards ceremony.  The Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott presented the 40th Annual Roseanne Barratt Community Service Award to Robin DiNicola.  Robin is a member of our own Junior Women’s Club; however, she was nominated by the Wolcott Exchange Club.  This award exemplifies outstanding commitment to community service and the spirit of volunteerism.  An impartial panel of judges from outside of our community selected the recipient of this award. We feel that our women volunteers are well deserving of recognition for their hard work and dedication, and anyone who knows Robin knows that she is committed to this town and the spirit of Volunteerism.  Thank you, Robin, for everything you do every day!

The Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott recently awarded three $1000.00 scholarships to Wolcott’s high school seniors.  The Arts Scholarship was established in 1981, and recognizes a student for achievement in the Arts or pursing higher education in the Arts.  The Lucille Jablonski Community Service Scholarship was established in memory of a beloved Club member, known for her service to Wolcott.  Our final scholarship is The Patricia Najarian Scholarship which was established in 1967, to recognize a student who is achieving her/his full scholastic potential.

We will be sponsoring our major fundraiser; the Little Miss and Mr. Wolcott Contest to be held at the Lions Club Country Fair in September.  The event is open for the first 20 girls and 20 boys who submit their completed application.  Applicants must reside in Wolcott and must be between the ages of 4 & 7.  You can download the application on our web site, www.juniorwomensclubofwolcott.org

The Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott meets the 1st Wednesday of every month from September-June. Our meetings are open to all women age of 18 or older, who are interested in doing volunteer work in our community.  Please contact us via email for more information via email at wolcottjuniors@gmail.com .
