Halls Middle and High School Art Contest
At our April 24, 2018, Membership Meeting, the League awarded prizes for art to contestants from the Halls Middle and High Schools. Parents and family members were invited to enjoy a meal furnished by the League that consisted of barbque and the fixin's, dessert, and drinks. Each school submitted art work from the students and prizes were awarded for first place, second place, third place, and honorable mention from each school. The work was beautiful! Each student spoke about their work and we appreciate the thoughtfulness and many hours of work it took to produce each piece. Well done!

HCWL Litter Pickup
On April 14, 2018, we hosted a Litter Pickup for the Halls Community. The pickup started at 10:00 a.m. at the HCWL Closet on Maynardville Highway, and the participants were directed to the area(s) to be picked up. Members and participants from the Halls High School Robotics Club and others from the Community came support our efforts. At the pickup we had 27 volunteers that picked up 30 trash bags of litter, lots of cardboard, a swim float, dog kennel and building materials. All in all a very productive day! Thanks everyone!

Veteran's Day Event
Each year the Women's League hosts a Veteran's Day Event for those Veterans in our area. We have bus that takes participants to the Veteran's Day Parade site in downtown Knoxville, provide vehicles for them to ride on in the parade, and then they return by bus to a luncheon prepared by the ladies of the Women's League. At the luncheon each Veteran is recognized and honored.
