Mayo Woman’s Club Hosts District 3 conference and art show-Betsy Suber chosen District Volunteer of the Year

Mayo — Alton Life Center in Mayo was the site of the recent GFWC Florida District 3 meeting and arts competition hosted by the Mayo Woman’s Club members. Clubs from Perry, Live Oak, Monticello, Capital City, Tallahassee, and some Junior Woman’s Clubs participated.

The theme “Matters of the Heart” focused on healthy hearts along with “Volunteers Have Hearts of Gold”. Local club members also raised funds by the sale of their Happy Heart Soup. A delicious breakfast and lunch were served to all in attendance.

Mayo Woman’s Club President Marie O’Steen welcomed guests that included District 3 Director Donna Peacock and Junior Director Cherie Hall. The judges for the arts/crafts competition were Jack Howdeshell, photography; Tammy Mowery, fine arts; and Regina Ward, crafts.

Out of about 70 who entered the competition, three Mayo entries placed. Jan Melvin won first place in Family Heirloom Sewing and first place in Recycled Sewing with a patchwork quilt. Nancy Singletary placed third in Watercolor with her “Pig”. Jan Melvin’s christening gown was runner-up to the People’s Choice award. As a special treat, Kaylin Morgan and Kaley Koon provided entertainment while the judging took place at the event.

A most notable honor was bestowed on Betsy Suber as her selection as District 3 Volunteer of the Year was announced. She was presented the award along with a crown and a bouquet of roses. Betsy’s many contributions to church, community and Campers on Mission were highlighted during the presentation. She is now in competition for the state award to be given in April in Orlando.

The Mayo Woman’s Club welcomes prospective members to their monthly luncheons. Contact any Woman’s Club member for more information.
