FCL membership is growing in Union County!
The mission of the South Carolina Family and Community Leaders is “to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities thru fellowship, dedication, education, and service.” In Union County, that’s exactly what they do.
FCL has been an active organization in Union County for years. There are four clubs in the county, the Santuc Club, Patchwork Quilters, Twisted Stitches Crochet, and Mailwatchers. As with most organizations, membership numbers go up and down. Union County FCL is coming in strong for 2022 with over 10 new memberships.
The Union County FCL uses the meeting room at the Union County Extension office. Their clubs have monthly educational lessons, workshops, they do fundraisers, service projects, and more. Some of the money raised provides funds for their annual educational scholarship, which is available to one local youth or adult. They have also made items such as lap quilts, diapers, and hats and donated them to local senior centers, hospitals, and charities across the world.
In keeping with community service, Union County FCL is a big supporter of Union County Extension and Union County 4-H. For example, the extension office handles the agricultural and home ec entries during the local fair, and the FCL members are always there to help. They have also provided monetary donations to assist the local 4-H youth and programs. Some of these donations have helped 4-Hers attend programs outside the county. Without their help, they may have not been able to participate.
With their growing membership, they will have the numbers to continue their mission “to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities thru fellowship, dedication, education, and service.”
Thank you Union County FCL!
