Come join us for our first luncheon of 2018! Our guest speaker will be Melissa Garrett, Executive Director of Genesis House. We will be presenting a donation to Genesis House and Avalon to help with their mission of helping women and children in need of a safe refuge.

Melissa Garrett began her journey at Genesis House, Inc. assisting victims of domestic and sexual violence in 2000 as an Advocate.  For the past 18 years, she has attended numerous trainings and facilitated numerous informational presentations, trainings and in-service to community organizations, schools, and law enforcement agencies.  In July 2015, she was promoted to Executive Director.
When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family. Melissa and her husband John have 3 children; Harrison who is 6, Lillian who is 4, and Elijah who is 16.


The price for the lunch is $15 (plus gratuity) payable at the door. Extra donations for the annual scholarship fund are always welcome! Members and non-members alike are welcome to attend. (A portion of the proceeds is dedicated to the UCWC scholarship and /or benevolent fund to support local women advocacy issues.)

Since this will be our first meeting of 2018, it will also be an excellent time to renew your membership or join.
