Library honors dedicated volunteers and the induction of dedicated community servants.

Library honors dedicated volunteers

Bruton Memorial Library volunteers were honored at the bi-annual appreciation breakfast last week. Certificates of appreciation were given out during breakfast. Freda Sallee received the “Outstanding Volunteer” award for her many years of working in the used book store.

Dodie White received “Volunteer of the Year 2017” for directing and managing the hugely successful Mystery Dinner Theater fundraiser. The dinner is one of the largest fundraisers for the library. White has also served on the Friends of the Library Board of Directors.

Those interested in helping even a few hours each week should contact Felecia Broome at 813-757-9215 or stop by the library for more information.

Induction of dedicated Junior Woman's Club members

The GFWC Plant City Junior Woman’s Club held its annual installation and awards ceremony, welcoming three new members to the group. The women were moved to full-member status after volunteering their time and efforts to the annual Shoe Project, the Empty Bowls Project, Baby Parade, Little Miss Plant City contest, Pig Jam and more.

The GFWC Plant City Junior Woman’s Club has immersed itself in the local community, aiding with nonprofits and civic organizations. The group also adopted the Shoe Project, which provides shoes to underprivileged children in the school district. In 2017, the club hosted its inaugural 5K Reindeer Run to raise funds for the project.

At the ceremony, Alex Rae Rhoades received the “2017 Junior of the Year Award,” Nia Ramo won the “2017 President’s Award” and Jenny Caravajal received the “2017 Provisional of the Year Award.”
