November 2020 - Suffragist Alice Scott Abbott of Bunnell, FL was selected to be added to the Florida Women's Hall of Fame. Unfortunately former FL Women's Club President May Mann Jennings was not selected. Hopefully she will be considered again in the future for her tireless work not only to help women win the vote, but for social justice, environmental protection, and more. Thanks to everyone who either called or wrote the governor in support of Alice's nomination. Click here to see the Governor's press release

March 2022 - Family Secrets
Grand Haven Woman’s Club member, Beth Havens wrote a book last year and had it self-published. It is now available in both paperback and ebook versions. The name of the book is: Family Secrets.
There are several sites on which you can find her book (see below), read a short synopsis, a brief excerpt, and the author's bio. One of her daughters-in-law sketched the illustration for the cover. It is a fun fictionalized version of a personal experience.
Please consider purchasing one of the versions. And if not, if you would at least click on it, that will indicate interest in the book to the distributors who will likely keep it on their websites. Thanks for taking a look!
