Annual Meeting

2019 Fall Meeting was held
Sunday, September 29, 2019
 at Lake Placid Conference Center

10th Anniversary Celebration

As part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the founding of Women of Worth, the group honored 21 local senior citizens who were featured in the second volume of Speaking of Yesterday. The book tells the stories, often in their own words, of 21 women (and sometimes their husbands) who were born in the 1920s or ’30s and have lived in Blackford County during much of their adult lives.

The book is a follow up to the very successful first volume, Speaking of Yesterday, written in 2016 as part of the Indiana Bicentennial celebration in Blackford County. Both volumes honor the contributions these local citizens have made to their families and their communities.

2019 Fall Meeting Memories

  • Funds were available to award a $500 grant each of the five W.O.W. applicants.
  • The 21 women (and men) featured in Speaking of Yesterday Volume 2 were introduced.
  • The Minnetrista Theatre Preserves presented two monologues entitled “In My Hands, in My Heart.” The performance tells the story of two young men who work at the Ball Canning Jar Factory in 1928. They each make a terrifying discovery when they are sweeping the factory floor as part of their jobs: a jar that is molded with the crest of the Ku Klux Klan.
  • Shared fellowship with other philanthropic minded local women during the provided luncheon.
