Newly-formed Junior Women’s Club opens with a successful festival in Keystone

Posted

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS – The Junior Woman’s Club, a branch of the Woman’s Club of Keystone Heights, was created recently.

The new club was founded in June when Dana Eatmon and a group of women wanted a club where working women and mothers could join. The group serves the community as a service organization in which they do fundraisers, scholarships, and support the local food bank and Lake Area Ministries.

“Anywhere we’re needed that’s what we’re going to do,” co-president Eatmon said.

The club held their first Almost Fall Craft and Vendor Festival at the renovated Woman’s Club building. The event’s purpose was to show the community the new renovations which included painting, new light fixtures and outlets. In addition, the group wanted to show their support to the local vendors and provide something for the community to do together.

“We wanted to kind of bring the community out, give them something to do for the fall,” Eatmon said.

The overall outcome of the festival was a major success. There were 1,500 people at the festival and more than 30 vendors were there to sell their unique products. Two of the favorites were kettle corn and a face painting stand. Three food trucks were there providing food for everyone to enjoy.

“It has surpassed our expectations by far,” Eatmon said. “All the vendors looked happy. Several vendors sold out of their products. The food trucks were selling out of items. It was just very well-organized and the community did a fabulous job of coming out and supporting.”

She said the community really enjoyed attending the local festival and would like to have another one soon. At the moment, the Junior Woman’s Club is planning to host another festival in the spring which will have additional vendors.
