We had another amazing Wilson ONE meeting Thursday. Our speaker was our very own Vice President, Melanie Culbreath, Sales Director at Mary Kay. Bonus, she’s also a nurse! She spoke about “How to be Your Best Self.” She had some wonderful insight on how to look amongst and within ourselves and pull out the very best. Not only with how you look but how you feel and treat yourself. Our project was the Adult High School. We provided students with food, gas gift cards and fast food restaurant gift cards. We took a moment of silence for the tornado victims and shared our experiences. We heard from members Traci Pope, on how Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital took action and helped Wilson County during this devastation, and from Kay Maynard on how we can further continue to help. We continue to pray for our community. We are in awe of how our community has formed together during this time. Thank you to our first responders, police, firemen, volunteers, Middle Tennessee Electric and countless others. #WilsonCountyStrong

Really great turnout for our February 2019 luncheon meeting. Quite unexpected with inclement weather and varied level of sickness all around. Our ladies love getting together for fellowship, networking, supporting each project and learning more about our community. Jan Parker gave her signature vivacious presentation about Jimmy Floyd center and keeping ON THE MOVE. Our project was dental care items to help both Family Resource for LSSD and Wilson County Schools. Membership is growing and we expect Spring to blossom even more. March 7 is our next meeting.
Wilson ONE never ceases to amaze us and today was no different! We had a great turnout of 50 incredible women and these incredible women are helping to dress other women who are in need. Everyone brought in dresses, business suits, shoes and accessories, to help 3 wonderful programs: Liz Reese with Brooks House (https://brookshousetn.org/) , Nora Jackson with Healing Broken Vessels (http://healingbrokenvessels.org) , and Betty Byrd with Adult Education (https://www.wcschools.com/domain/1321) . Hope we can help make a difference!
We also had a surprise guest, Donna Odum with Henderson’s Florist (https://www.hendersonflowershop.com/#) , who taught some of us to make Christmas bows. We had many who produced beautiful bows!
Most importantly, it’s what keeps Wilson ONE an amazing organization, Marie Farley swore in our new officers.
We had a wonderful November meeting with several new visitors, including some who learned about Wilson ONE at our A Taste of Wilson County booth!
Our speaker was Bob Pergler with Rehab 23. Rehab 23 provides supplies and support for local law enforcement and first responders. It was so informative – what a great organization! More information about them can be found at their website: rehab23.org.
Our project this month was Wilson County schools – Wilson ONE members donated socks, underwear, and dry shampoo for students in need.
We’d love to have you join us at our next meeting!
