Groton Woman’s Club President Marie Melican and Greens Sale Committee members Nancy Olson and Pat Woods recently presented Joyce Shelter Holt, Executive Director and Founding President of Hagar’s Sisters, a check representing the club’s first annual donation to a woman’s charitable foundation.

Hagar’s Sisters was chosen as this year’s recipient based on the outstanding array of services and support they provide their clients who have experienced abusive behavior.

Our selection committee was especially impressed with the number of trained volunteers within their organization who are abuse survivors that have returned to provide support to their fellow “sisters”.

The Woman’s Club congratulates Hagar’s Sisters on their dedication to their cause and are pleased to support them in their endeavor.
