GFWC Newport Woman’s Club met in December and decided to buy a cow. They met again on Thursday, January 8th at the Anglers Restaurant, where guest speaker Janet West Schrock, Maine Volunteer Coordinator of Heifer International, spoke about its mission to give people an opportunity to support and feed themselves. The club’s heifer will go to a family in need and provide milk. The family will then give the first calf to another family and the gift continues. GFWC International is partnering with Heifer International, particularly in its efforts to help women pass on the gift of education and success. You can learn more about the mission at
