The Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott recently awarded three $750.00 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. Julia Thies was awarded the Arts Scholarship.   The Lucille Jablonski Community Service Scholarship was established in memory of a beloved Club member, known for her service to Wolcott.  This year’s award recipient has shown exemplary community service, Josef Macary.  Alex Forte received 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 Little Miss and Mr. Wolcott Contest to be held at the Lions Club 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

Connecticut Junior Women’s Director, Jeanne McFerland recently announced that the Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott was awarded the Outstanding Club of the year.  This recognition is awarded to a club in Connecticut.  We also received recognition for the “Project that Made the Most Impact” in their community.  That project supplied a single mother and her family of 5 with appliances, Pj’s, clothing including a decorated Christmas tree and a bag of toys for the children.

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.
