The Lexington Woman’s Club’s Arts and Culture CSP is sponsoring a Della Robbia style decorating workshop with all proceeds benefitting the Lexington County Museum. Della Robbia style of decorating uses fresh greenery with fruit, nuts, and other natural materials. Many of these natural materials can be found in your yard. This workshop will feature the Hogarth Curve form and its many uses in decorating for Christmas as well as other events.
Pictured below is an example of a Hogarth Curve table decoration our sustaining member, Dale Timbes, will be demonstrating how to make at our workshop. This example uses the entire curve, but arrangements can be made on a smaller scale or by using the form in different formats, such as circles or half circles. Please join us and encourage your friends to join us for this LWC event.
Lexington Woman's Club helped deliver over 80 watermelons to Turner AME Church and for helping prepare growing bags for Lexington Community Garden’s greenhouse. Hunger No More is excited to be chosen as Lexington Woman’s Club’s Community Service project this year.

Chief Terrence Green and Sheriff Jay Koon of the Lexington County Sheriff's Department met with the Lexington Woman's Club to thank them for providing the Blue Line banners which have been hung in downtown Town of Lexington for the month of May.
The Lexington Woman's Club has built upon their club's motto, "Work Today for a Better Tomorrow", since its inception in April 1958 and federation in May 1958. Under the leadership of her first President, Mrs. Nancy Wingard, the membership formulated their programs, purposes, and goals to reflect the General Federation of Women's Club objectives and guidelines.
Mrs. Vie Sandifer became the second President and continued addressing the needs of the small, rural community that bordered the state capital. With a great love of gardening, she initiated the "Yard of the Month" program under the Conservation Department in 1962. The purpose of this project was to feature the growing of botanicals in yards within a five mile radius from the Lexington Courthouse. The general public could view the yard's trees, shrubs, flowers, and garden features and note the growth habit, water needs, and sun exposures. The viewer could determine if the plant would be suitable in their landscape. The selected recipient was given a certificate of award and their name/address/features were printed in the local newspaper's community column.
These objectives remain intact today. Because of the popularity of this project, the project that has continued since 1962. Mrs. Sandifer continues to be a sustaining charter member of the club. The Environment Community Service Program now awards a Yard of the Season to deserving residents.
