Come discover treasures and grab some goodies at the Garage Sale and Bake Sale of The Cherokee Women's Club, this Saturday, Oct. 15th. It takes place in the Tellico Plains Community Center parking lot on Bank Street, from 8am 'til 1 or 1:30pm.
The Sale will help fund projects which financially assist the Tellico Plains Library. The Club pays the annual software license fee for checking books in/out, helps with the Summer Reading Program children's gifts, and generously provides other assistance as needed.
In addition to supporting the Library, The Cherokee Women's Club also does beautification in the town seasonally, like the cornstalks and mums now decorating the town so beautifully for fall. The members help maintain the Botanical Garden behind the Charles Hall Museum, give a scholarship to a Senior at Tellico High, and conduct a poetry contest for all the local schools, grades 1 through 12. This year the Club also supported a Science Fair at the Junior High and help the horticulture students monetarily at the high school. Its major fundraiser is the popular "Cookie Caper" during the Tellico Plains Candlelite Walk, held annually on the evening of the first Saturday in December.
The Cherokee Women's Club meets on the first Monday of each month at noon, usually at the Visitor Center. They welcome any ladies who are interested in their community and helping improve it to join. Call Sharon Bodie at 423-253-2269.
Hope to see you there Saturday!
