The City Federation of Women’s Clubs recognized and honored 15 outstanding club women at the 53rd annual Spring Tea earlier this month at the Ellis County Woman’s Building. These women have served each of the 15 participating clubs with exceptional contributions to their local clubs and to the community and each woman was selected by peer club members for this honor.

Jane Ann Shipp, president of the City Federation Clubs, recently welcomed members and guests to the 52nd annual tea to honor outstanding women of Waxahachie.

The invocation was given by the third vice president, JoAnn Ranton. Barbara Baty, second vice president, then led the pledges to the flags and club roll call was officiated by JoAnn Ranton. The treasurer’s report was given by Shawnee Harding, minutes were ready by Tommy Worthy, secretary, and the music was presented by Carol Farrar.

The 15 outstanding women were then honored. They included:
