What We Do

FUND RAISING

The Junior Women sponsor two fund-raisers during the year to finance all our other
projects.  These are our most labor-intensive undertakings.  Everyone helps out and we
have a lot of fun.

AMERICAN ACCENTS:  A FESTIVAL OF FINE ARTS AND CRAFTS
Held the second Saturday in August, the Accents show brings 80 exhibitors together
along the Rubicon River.   Food and entertainment are provided.

THE GREAT HARTFORD CRAFT EXPOSITION
Held the second Saturday in November, the Hartford Craft Expo brings 120 exhibitors
together at the Hartford Union High School.  Entertainment is provided as well as a
Pancake breakfast sponsored by The Hartford Lions Club.


COMMUNITY SERVICE


SCHOLARSHIPS - A $750 scholarship is provided for a graduate of Hartford Union High
School who has completed at least one year of college or tech school.

FBLA - Our club is the community partner for the Future Business Leaders of America at
Hartford Union High School.  We sponsor an annual scholarship.

RED CROSS EMERGENCY FUND - We finance the purchase of clothing or other items
for families who come to the Hartford Red Cross with immediate needs.

SCHAUER ARTS AND ACTIVITIES CENTER - Since the Schauer Center opened its
doors,  Hartford Women's Club has sponsored many of its fine performances, such as
last season's "Men on Ice".  Members have volunteered at numerous events,  including
the "Taste of the Arts" fund raising evening.

HARTFORD
HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS -  We supply the school with various "wish list"
items on a yearly basis.

HARTFORD CHRISTMAS COMMITTEE - Funds and gifts are donated to the Hartford
Christmas Committee each year.  Gifts are given to needy families in the community.

BEA VINCENT - We contribute funds to Bea Vincent.  A local philanthropist, Bea sews
hundreds of clothing items and donates them to children in need.  As her project has
become known, other women in the area have joined forces with her in this outreach
program.

Every year the Hartford Women's Club considers new and exciting projects and
programs to support.
