Welcome to the AWC website!
As 2021 begins, so does a new way of life. Public gatherings are limited, lockdowns are frequent and moral is low. But through this all the American Women's Club has remained a constant. Using technology and our electronic newsletters, we have stayed in touch and perhaps learned from each other more than we may have otherwise. We shared our lives, our hobbies and kept each other going through uplifting messages.
Through this all - our caring committee continued it dedication to helping those less fortunate. After the port explosion in August 2020, and the economic downturn, the committee has been providing much needed support to the affected people of Lebanon. We collected housewares, provided food for food kitchens and donated blankets for the winter.
2021 looks to be another challenging year – but as the Beatles said… “We’ll get by with a little help from our friends”. We will keep up our charity work concentrating on those most in need. We will continue our colorful newsletter to keep everyone in touch. We are also looking to ZOOM to start virtual activities and plan monthly meetings. In addition, we are constantly updating this new website with caring committee news and other information – check it often.
Thank you for visiting our website - and please be safe!
~ Jill Achkar - President 2021
