The Compeer Life Friends Women’s group celebrated their second anniversary. This group, led by Shirley Atkins, meets every Friday at the Compeer Life Friends Recreation Center. Shirley plans exciting activities for all members of the group, from field trips to see art at the Carnegie Museum, to hosting guest speakers to each the women how to write poetry. The group also works on weekly art projects in addition to exploring their feelings through writing. The women enjoy having lunch together each week while they talk about important issues they face.
As part of the two-year anniversary celebration, the women all showed pieces of art they created throughout the year or read a poem or special journal entry. They planned a wonderful lunch and were able to bring a guest to share in the festivities. It was a wonderful celebration of a very special group.
