Girls' club focuses on service

(ran PC edition)

The Sparkling Lakes Juniorettes are looking for more girls interested in a service club that is one of the world's largest female volunteer organizations. Organized a year ago for teenage girls, the club takes in members from all schools. While performing service projects, members receive credit for service hours, have opportunities to make new friends, learn new skills and develop leadership capabilities. The club is sponsored by the Lutz-Land O'Lakes Woman's Club and Tampa Lakes Woman's Club. Regular meetings are the third Monday of each month with special meetings scheduled for the first Monday of the month. The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Aug. 19 at the Lutz Library. For information, call Nancy Fisher at (813) 949-1919.
