National Business Women’s Week Observed
Aars & Nelson
CLIFTON - The third full week in
October is Observed as National Bus-
iness Women's Week by members of
the Texas Federation of Business and
Professional Women, many cooperat-
ing groups, and news media. This
year’s observance takes place from
Oct. 20 through Oct. 26. It was adopt-
ed in 1926 and has been observed an-
nually since 1926.
National Business Women’s Week
is a nationwide salute to the achieve-
ments of all working women. The
President of the United States cus-
tomarily opens the week with a mes-
sage, and similar messages are issued
by many governors and mayors. The
National Federation's goal of elevat-
ing the standards for business and
professional women ia particularly
National Business Women’s Week
is a time for cooperative planning
with other organisations, when BPW
local organisations initiate and spon-
sor programs to encourage all career
*'women’s groups in their communities
to emphasize the increasing impor-
laac&oLwomen to the nation and its
business and professional life.
The Bosque County BPW was or-
ganized in 1985 by a group of interest-
ed women who saw the need for such
an organization in our local area.
Bosque County Business and Profes-
sional Women received their state
charter in February of 1986, a date
annually commemorated history by
holding a banquet to which all BPW
spouses and local dignitaries and
friends are invited.
Current officers serving the Bosque
County BPW include Joan Thoede,
president; Dee Anna Nichols, first
vice-president; Barbara Derrick, se-
cond vice-president; Julie Conley,
third vice-president; Alice Brewer,
secretary; and Bobbi Foster,
Recognition of Woman of the Year
and Employer of the Year of Bosque
County BPW are traditionally an-
nounced during a luncheon during
National Business Women’s Week.
Candidates are selected by the organi-
zation’s members following criterion
as outlined by the Federation.
This year’s Woman of the Year
nominees are Dee Anna Nichols and
Julie Conley. Nominated aa Employ-
er of the year are Walla Industries,
Goodall-Witcher Hospital Foundation,
and Robertson and Robertson, At-,
The public iB invited to the lunch-
eon on Oct. 24 from 11 a.m. to 1:30

Chamber of Commerce Producing Newsletter
The Chamber of Commerce
produces a monthly newsletter for all
the members, associates, and busi-
nesses. From time to time, I will mail
complimentary copies to non-
members as an enticement to draw at-
tention to Chamber concerns. The
Chamber Focus informs membership
of current meetings, new members,
progress of committees, etc. If I
receive tidbits from members for the
newsletter, that’s wonderful! It does
make it more newsy and doubly in-
kresting. However, whatever the
source, items that are of concern to
our community are included.
Mary Mae Hartley, newcomer to
Clifton and a feature writer for The
Clifton Record, sent me data on at-
tracting retirees as a source of
revenue for small towns. I condensed
it for the Chamber newsletter, since
for or our county, the facts were time-
ly and apropos.
October is the beginning of our fis-
cal year and recruiting time, and, on
that subject, we are happy to an-
nounce three new members to the
Chamber. They are Glen Cole of
McGregor; Lake Whitney Views,
Whitney; and Stevens Motor and Im-
plement, Clifton. If you are consider-
ing joining the Chamber, take a
minute to call the office and inquire
about our dues structure. Most busi-
nesses which are Chamber members
have a Chamber of Commerce decal
displayed on their door or window,
and a Chamber plaque denoting the
current year. ’
At the last general membership
meeting, our Christmas committee
shared with us plans for the upcom-
ing holiday season. Our November
meeting will highlight completed de-
tails for the arrival of Santa Claus,
decorations, and decorating contest.
Wednesday, Nov. 13, is the next
scheduled meeting date. Information
on place and menu will be available
All the activity at the Clifton Mer
cantile Mall ia very exciting. It will be
great to see this landmark returned
to its original glory. Our town has
many older buildings that are unique.
They’re not architectural antiques be-
cause you aee the revivial of these de-
signs in new buildings in larger cities.
One of my favorites is the building
presently housing Texas Transmis-
sions on the corner of 3rd and Avenue
D—art deco through and through. The
old corner drugstore is fabulous and
operates B.J.’s Western Wear in
Dr. Dee Anna Nichols is owner of
her dental practice in Clifton. She
joined the local BPW in 1988, ia the
first vice-president this year, and ia
the Issues Management Chair.
Membership in Business and Profes-
sonal Women is open to all employed
women in the area who support the
goals and objectives of BPW. The
Bosque County BPW meets at 6 p.m.
on the second Monday of each month.

would involve little fix-up. The build-
ing located on 5th between the Cham-
ber office and Mac’s TV is divine, and,
with a little imagination, would be a
showplace. The potential is here, we
just need a promoter to aee Clifton to
the outside world.
In some towns, these promoters are
called city managers. A promoter to
introduce those who live in the fast
lane to the joys of small town living.
