The Women's Club of Satsuma held an organizational meeting at Satsuma Senior Center on Monday, January 5. At that time, the members voted on a name, mission statement and officers. The 2015 officers are as follows: Mary Atchison, president; Bette Kay Nell, first vice president; Betty McClain, second vice president; Luvenia Spotswood, treasurer; Cassandra Kilpatrick, secretary; Lisa George, scrapbook; Betty Maxwell and Vicki Hanbury, contacts.
In addition, the women of the club have made plans for a local trip for the February meeting. The excursion will be related to the club's 2015 project: assisting in providing a replica of Satsuma's former Union Church, construction of which was begun in January 1915. After the business meeting, the members enjoyed a lunch of soup, sandwiches and dessert.
