Local Civic Club celebrates 40 years of service

Green Tree Woman’s Civic Club is celebrating its 40th year of service to the community by holding its annual Spring Fashion Show on March 23 at the DoubleTree Hotel, 500 Mansfield Ave., Green Tree.

One of their recent good deeds was sponsoring a craft at December’s Light Up Night at the Green Tree Municipal Center. They also sent 23 boxes of toiletries and snacks to the Marines guarding the U.S. embassies in Pakistan, Zaire and Djibouti. Included in the boxes were holiday cards drawn by first- and second-grade students at Aiken Elementary of Keystone Oaks School District.

“Giving back is very important,” said Jill Folkmire, current secretary and member for the past four years. Other officers include Amy Cesario, president; Christine Short, vice president; and Donna Gall, treasurer. There are 56 members.

The club meets on the first Thursday of each month in the Carlisle Social Hall in the Green Tree fire station, 825 Poplar St. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. Many of their events help raise funds so they may sponsor their annual $1,500 college scholarship to a Green Tree resident who is chosen through an application process.

Other upcoming events include game day/social at Marion Manor on April 13, a pig roast fundraiser at the Hop House in July, and ladies night at the Green Tree pool in August.

This year’s fashion show celebration on March 23 will cost $30, with lunch served at noon. Fashions will be provided by White House Black Market. For tickets, call 412-378-2707.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
