Bedford Women's Club to begin club year with new member coffee

BEDFORD — The Bedford Women’s Club will begin its club year with a coffee for new and prospective members at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6.
Women interested in attending should contact membership co-chairmen Terry Chapman at 472-3642 or Chris Buffey at 935-7228. They will send prospective members an invitation.

The club, which was established in 1905, is open to Bedford women who are interested in fostering social and cultural relationships as well as providing scholarships and charitable contributions.

Active membership is a category appropriate for women who can attend midday meetings. Associate membership is available to women whose commitments prevent them from attending monthly meetings. Associate members may participate in club interest groups and serve on committees.

General membership meetings are held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. the fourth Thursday of each month from September through May at Bedford Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, unless otherwise designated. There is usually a guest speaker. Annual dues are $30.

Each year, the club invites nonprofit organizations that benefit Bedford residents to apply for a donation by filling out the club’s charitable donation request form available under the Downloads link at bedfordwomensclub.org.
This year, the club awarded several grants in the Bedford community. The Bedford Fire Department, the Bedford Historical Society, Guiding Eyes for the Blind, the Bedford Bobcats Special Olympics Team, the Friends of the Bedford Cemeteries, and Stand by Me all received funds. Also, three high school seniors received a Josephine A. Fearon Scholarship.
