Study club assists Safe Place with gifts

The Modern Study Club of Pecos held a delightful Home Life Department program at their bi-monthly meeting held Oct. 8 in the home of President Joyce Morton with Lena Harpham assisting her as hostess.

The meeting was a baby shower for Safe Place in Midland, planned by Home Life Department Chairman, Etta Sullivan.

Nancy Betts, representing Safe Place, was on hand to open numerous gifts given by club members, for the women and children of this shelter for battered women, which has been in existence for more than 20 years.

The shelter can provide for as many as 64 women and children. Their purpose goes beyond getting the women and children into a safe environment. Through education, providing training for jobs and developing the self-confidence they need to break the patterns of unself-worth that have been programmed into them they are better prepared to meet their future. The shelter personnel and supporters provide school supplies and also see that the children receive the support they need to continue school work and homework assignments properly through the disruption they may be experiencing in their young lives.

In a very casual setting, Mrs. Betts opened the gifts as she spoke of the needs, the successes and the goals of this worthy establishment.

It was deemed one of the most exciting meetings held this year by those who attended the meeting.

Roll call was answered by relating a fact addressing domestic violence. Project emphasis for this meeting is the donation of The Modern Study Club Scholarship to a Pecos High Senior, 2004.

During opening ceremonies and meeting, President Morton presided. Pearl Gustafson led the Club Collect and Iris Reddick led the pledges to the United States of America and Texas Flags, as those in attendance repeated all in unison.

Paula Fuller, secretary, read the minutes of the previous meeting and Mrs. Gustafson, treasurer, gave a statement of club finances.

The Modern Study Club meets the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month and visitors are always welcome to study, enjoy friendships and have an adventure now and then.
