First Vice President Tammy Moore conducted the membership survey this year to provide a picture of the women in the League today. 32 women were surveyed. Class 2016 is the largest class in the league. Members’ ages range from 24 to 43 years old. Most women are married and more than half have one or two children. Most of the children are under 6 years of age with a large portion of those being under 3 years old.

This year the Member Events committee hosted a Sustainer Dessert at the Parish House on the same evening as the Provisional Dessert. It was a most delightful evening. Rachael Revel prepared scrumptious appetizers and desserts "to die for". It was truly a lovely presentation.

The Charity League of Martinsville-Henry County had not one presence but two at the biggest expo in the region. Not only did members work a booth in the floor plan of 157 but they also participated in the Taste of Martinsville-Henry County.
On Friday, March 20th, members and friends of the Charity League gathered at the Laurel Park Putt-Putt to play in the 2nd Annual Pro-Am Tournament. The evening started off with a hot dog supper and a chance for the amateurs and the professional putt-putt players to become better acquainted. After dinner, amateurs were able to practice with the professionals for some time before official play started. Again this year, participants were asked to find at least five sponsors to make a donation per hole in one or make a flat donation amount.
Change of Presidents: Tiffani Underwood passes the tiara to Beverly Cecil This past year has been filled with many ups and downs, and I have to admit I am a little sad that it is over. While it was an extremely busy year, it was a very rewarding one as well.
The Provisional Dessert/Social was held April 14, 2009 at the Parish House of Christ Episcopal Church. As the event approached, the excitement was palpable; in part due to the rumor that this was the first year in the history of the League to have 30 Provisionals in attendance. It was a commonly themed joke throughout the evening that the Actives were now out-numbered. What a fabulous "problem" to be facing!
