Gulf CI helping Club
GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club members President Carolyn Watson, Vice President Jackie Huft and Secretary Rhonda Alderman met with Gulf C. I. Warden Payne, Lorie Lykins, AWP, Michelle Witalec, Classification Supervisor and Terry Lollie, AWO in August to discuss upcoming events.
Gulf CI has agreed to have a sign made for the Veteran’s site and help with Coats for Kids. In the past GCI has participated in our Coats for Kids project and Warden Payne is looking forward to helping with Coats for Kids and our Pulled Pork fundraiser.
After speaking with them about the prison library we will soon be having a book drive to help replenish books that were lost or damaged in Hurricane Michael. We are looking for appropriate books, educational and magazines as well. Dates of book drives will be announced.

Wewahitchka Veteran’s Park bricks
The GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club is partnering with the City of Wewahitchka to establish a Veteran’s Park to honor our veteran’s. Our first order of bricks has been sent in and we have begun to make a second order.
We are selling 4x8 bricks with branch of service emblem, rank, branch and veteran’s name for $56. These pavers will be placed around two monuments as well as the United States of America flag and all service flags in their perspective order.
This site will be located at 169 State 71 N, in front of Lake Alice Park. Donations would be greatly appreciated. Call any GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club member to place an order or for more information contact Club President Carolyn Watson at 340-1940.
