HISTORICAL NOTES

            The first Woman’s club was organized in Troup County in 1908.  The club entered the state federation the following year under the name “The LaGrange Woman’s Club” (as stated in the club’s constitution).  The Junior Woman’s Club is the junior division of the LaGrange Woman’s Club and is a service organization.  Each year, the club takes on numerous projects that enhance the lives of others.  Among the projects that the club has done in the past includes a Bike-a-thon to benefit Cystic Fibrosis research, the Faculty Follies (in conjunction with LaGrange High School), Trees on Parade, an annual cookbook, and a downtown beautification project.  Money from these and other projects go to benefit organizations such as the National Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the Tallulah Falls School, and local groups.

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

           This collection contains records and scrapbooks.  The records can be found in the three manuscript boxes.  The records are comprised of awards, a copy of the by-laws and constitution, correspondence from 1949-1982, minutes from 1947-1986, yearbooks from 1954-1984 (some years missing), financial records, and miscellaneous documents. There are also 11 scrapbooks in this collection containing photographs, news articles, event programs, and publications concerning the club and their activities.  Both the club records and the scrapbooks are useful sources for research about members and activities of the club.
