During March, members will be collecting items of clothing that are appropriate for business attire for “Dress for Success,” a program that gives women in need a job interview outfit.
The club is celebrating its 43rd anniversary of community service.

The club is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Club, one of the world’s oldest women’s volunteer service organizations. The club meets at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in Daleville on the fourth Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m. For more information, write to Botetourt Town & Country WC. P.O.
