Linda Beatty Named GFWC Virginia's 2014-2016

Nominee for GFWC Jennie Award


At GFWC Virginia Conference in Lynchburg, Linda Beatty was named as the state nominee for the GFWC Jennie Award.  Linda has been active in clubwork since joining the Boykins Junior Woman’s Club in 1967 and then graduating to the GFWC Tarrara Woman’s Club in 1986.  Linda’s commitment to her club and the Federation is very evident.  Whatever the club project, Linda can be counted on to help with planning/set up/implemention/ clean up – from planting flowers in adopt-a-spot to spending hundreds of hours designing club’s largest fundraiser (pictorial community calendar) to organizing Christmas parades to collecting money for March of Dimes.  She has held all club offices including 3 terms as club President, and served as Southside District Director of Junior Clubs (1982 -84), Southside District President (1990 – 92), and GFWC Virginia President (2004- 2006).  


Linda is devoted to her family in all contexts of the word.  She was dedicated to the care of her husband and son until their deaths at which time she concentrated that devotion on her brother, nieces, and great nephews. She also is attentive to the needs and concerns of her church and community families helping them both financially and emotionally.  


Community is also important to Linda as evident through her work on the Town Council for 20 years.  She works with the Boykins Main Street Initiative to increase development of commerce in the town, holds membership in the local Lions Club, Ladies Auxiliary to the Volunteer Fire Department, and serves on the Board to the Genieve Woman’s Shelter among many other activities.  


Linda could not attend Conference in Lynchburg as she was on a mission trip with her church to the Eastern Shore of Virginia repairing homes for wounded veterans. Fran Edwards, GFWC Virginia 1st Vice-President/President surprised Linda with the presentation of her award at Southampton County Circuit Court Clerk’s office where she is employed.   


Linda’s name will be forwarded to the Southeastern Region to compete with nominees from other states in the region. Two region winners will be sent to GFWC and final Jennie Awards will be announced at the GFWC Convention in Baltimore.
