The Mill Creek Women’s Club received recognition “for their Outstanding Service and Dedication to Enhancing the Lives of Women in our Community” at the December 10, 2013, City Council meeting.
City Councilmember Donna Michelson read the proclamation, which celebrated the Mill Creek Women’s Club’s 30th Anniversary as a social and philanthropic organization focusing on the YWCA’s Pathways for Women and Working Wardrobe.
Judy Cromwell, Mill Creek Women’s Club President, and Susan Mayer, Mill Creek Women’s Club past-President, accepted the signed proclamation and thanked the City for their support.
Cromwell said the Women’s Club strived to represent Mill Creek, “We really are here not only to enhance the Women’s Club and Pathways for Women but also to enhance Mill Creek itself. We get our name out there as much as we can to support our City.”
Cromwell said that Women’s Club volunteers contribute approximately 200 hours of service per month to the YMCA’s Working Wardrobe program, which offers free, business-appropriate attire to homeless or low-income women in need of clothing for interviews or new jobs.
The Mill Creek Women’s Club raised approximately $32,000 for the YMCA’s Pathways for Women at this year’s Annual Auction luncheon.
