During a recent fundraiser presented by the Safety Harbor Library Foundation, GFWC North Pinellas Woman's Club President Virginia Papadopoulos was recognized as a "Treasure of the Harbor" for her volunteer work in Safety Harbor.

The GFWC North Pinellas Woman's Club was founded July 9, 2003 and is a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs. The not-for-profit organization is dedicated to education and charitable purposes, attending to the diverse needs of the community through hands-on service, funding, education, leadership and friendship.

The club meets at 6:30 p.m. the third Tuesday of every month at the Safety Harbor Library. Visit

For achieving excellence at their schools, the Kiwanis Club of Safety Harbor recognized four local fifth-graders as January Students of the Month. They are Abigail Hamm and Hayleigh Seiler of McMullen-Booth Elementary and Olivia Clark and Elisha Johnson of Safety Harbor Elementary.

Abigail was selected by teacher Evelyn Moldal for her generous nature and ability to serve as a role model for other students. She demonstrates empathy and compassion for those less fortunate by spending free time making bracelets to raise money to pay medical bills for a child diagnosed with cancer, her teacher said.

Hayleigh was chosen by teacher Tera Schumaker because she perceives the world on a broader scale, always thinking of friends, family, community or animals, her teacher said. Hayleigh dedicates herself to good grades, ballet class and thinking of ways to help support the Humane Society or Suncoast Animal League.

Teacher Carol Carstensen nominated Olivia for her musical ability and fine voice. A second-year chorus member, she has sung solos at concerts and participates in the Orff Bell Ensemble for fourth grade and fifth grade. Her talent and dedication earned her the honor of being one of four fellow students chosen for the Pinellas All-County Chorus.

Elisha Johnson, selected by teacher Joe O'Neill, is the type of student who likes to be challenged and aspires to do the best he possibly can. If he doesn't accomplish his goals the first time, he'll continue trying until he achieves what he wants. His classmates respect him as a leader, knowing he'll be fair and treat everyone with kindness and compassion, his teacher said.

Each student received a trophy from the Safety Harbor Kiwanis Club.
