As we celebrate our 89th year, The Sewanee Woman’s Club (SWC) will have their second meeting of the year on Monday, Oct. 14. An optional social hour begins at 11:30 a.m. Lunch is served at noon. SWC meets at the Dubose Conference Center in Monteagle. Dues are $10 per year and lunch is $14. Every effort is made to eat and have the program in the hour time frame. This is so members who work will be able to participate during their lunch hour.
The theme of this year’s meetings is “Make Yourself Count.”
The program for the October meeting will be presented by one of our own, Mae Kamalick. The title of her program is “Arabs & Arab-Americans: A Conversation in Diversity—Making Every Voice Count.” This is an interactive presentation that explores a specific segment of immigrants, Arabs and Arab-Americans, to foster diversity and enhance understanding.
With a master’s degree in English and Education, Mae began her U.S. government service with the FBI shortly after 9/11, first as a linguist, and then as a manager, developing, coordinating, and analyzing strategic plans and recommending improvements for quality of translation and the development of linguists. Prior to this government service, May worked on two continents and in three U.S. states as a corporate trainer and college instructor in English, Communications, Public Relations, and Arabic. She moved to Sewanee from the DC area a year ago and is now teaching intermediate Arabic, making new friends, and enjoying one set of her grandchildren.
The menu for the October meeting is a cup of soup, gourmet grilled cheese sandwich with tomatoes, mushrooms and onions, a tangy apple salad, and fresh peach cobbler with an ice cream topping.
