1961 - 1970
1961-62 The Cold War and Cuban Missile Crisis had caused our nation deep concern, so our club was very pleased when the Civil Defense Council built a demonstration fall-out shelter on our club’s grounds.
1964-65 "Education plus understanding equal honor" was the theme. Club Annual Prayer Breakfast started. "Far Away Places" was the theme for the Opening Coffee. The club launched Project Friend. A seven-year-old Korean boy was adopted by the Home Life Department. Only club in the state to honor Congressional Medal of Honor winners. Game night continued to make money. The first club bulletin was mailed and opened the first Thrift Shop. The Junior Department was the largest in the state with I8O members.
1969 Neil Armstrong made "a giant leap forward for mankind" by walking on the moon.
1970 Our club was hostess club for FFWC State Convention.

The Southside Woman’s Club of Jacksonville’s will be collecting personal hygiene products & undergarments, for children who have "accidents" at school and for children who don't even have sock on freezing days. Our campaign continues through the summer into the fall, as we collect gently used pants, shorts & skorts for these under-served children.
