The Lawrenceburg Pierian Woman’s Club raised approximately $1,500 for the Backpack Buddies program during the Hats Off! luncheon held April 27 in the Family Living Center at St. Lawrence Catholic Church.
The Backpack Buddies program provides weekend food for needy Anderson County students, according to the press release.
After lunch, Martha Caywood of The Derby Shoppe and Raggs in Danville again presented the style show, with club members and friends modeling.
The club’s project for May is a student art show to be held Saturday, May 11, from 10 a.m. to noon in the auditorium lobby at Anderson County High School. Cash prizes will be awarded in several categories. The public is invited to view the artworks, meet the student artists, and enjoy light refreshments provided by club members.
The next regular meeting will be May 16, when a new slate of officers will be installed. This month’s reading selection, “Seabiscuit,” by Laura Hillenbrand, will be discussed. The club will also be planning a June outing to close the current year’s activities. Meetings resume Sept. 19.
