Mandy McManus and Susan Hendricks co-chaired the 2011 Lilburn Woman's Club (LWC) Conservation program activities and were awarded a silver tray along with a Certificate of Recognition and top honors plus additional funding for their efforts in 'Go Native' plantings.
The GFWC Lilburn Woman's Club beat out over 140 other women's clubs all around the state with their community projects including collaborative efforts with the Lilburn Farmer's Market, the Ahimsa House, the Humane Society, expanding the Garden of Hope in Lilburn City Park, and so much more.
In addition to Best Overall in Conservation, the LWC placed either first or second in Art, Conservation, International Outreach, Public Issues and Home Life in the category of clubs with more than 51 members and took home a second silver tray for their 2011 Publicity campaign.
Former LWC President Gail Zarnik was onhand to accept the award from the GFWC State President Shari Carter (of Stone Mountain) and GFWC International President-elect Mary Ellen Laister.
"While we don't do it for the awards, it sure feels good to win and be recognized and know that we've made a positive difference in our community!" stated Zarnik.
The GFWC is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of citizens around the world. They focus on six key community service programs targeting Education, Home Life, Art, Public Issues, International Outreach and Conservation.
