Annual Club Projects:
The Village of Milan Women's Club is very proud of their club projects. The clubs'
projects are as follows:
Milan Santa: The club shopped for a total of 45 families in December 2008. Numerous
essential items are bought for selected families children, clothing and age appropriate
toys. Additionally, each family is given a "Family Gift", which consists of towels,
blankets, or if the committee feels that there is another need for a special item,
then that will take precedence. During the month of December, our club provides
a Christmas dinner at our local nursing homes, which brings many smiles to our elderly
who have no family to share the holiday spirit with.
Make a Difference Day: The club picks one Saturday morning in October, and club
volunteers brave the elements by manning the entrance/exits of two local grocery
stores to collect food donations…and of course, we never turn down cash donations!
During this short three-hour period, our club collected $1,200 in food items for
our local food pantry! Additionally, at each of meetings we encourage our members
to bring one item to be donated as well.
Indian Summer Festival (Labor Day Weekend): Our community is proud of our rich heritage
and celebrate with a three day home-town event to promote friendship, new acquaintances,
while developing new ones! The festivities start with a grand parade throughout
the village ending at the festival site where everyone can enjoy numerous food/drink
vendors, or even partake in a game or two of bingo! Over the course of the festival,
many young girls and women participate in contest to become the next Milan Queen
or Lil' Miss Milan. Our club is one of six clubs that plans, promotes and provides
the volunteers to ensure the festivals success! Proceeds from the festival are divided
among the clubs for projects in the upcoming year.
Many of our members go way above and beyond by volunteering throughout the community
at local schools, hospitals, libraries and village functions.
Friday, April 24 from 6:30-10:30pm, we will be hosting a Silent Auction at the Milan
Community Center. We are for a $7 donation that will include sandwiches and snacks
at this event
