The Ocala Christian Women's Club will commence this year's activities with a fashion show by Reasonable Elegance from The Villages. And the organization will be looking to guest speaker Nikki Jatindranath of Brunswick, Ga., to begin the year with enthusiasm and inspiration.
The local group is part of a national organization founded more than 65 years ago. The Ocala chapter was established in the 1970s.
Clubs appoint a team of women to host lunches each month, and according to Eve Booth, the Ocala group hosts between 120 and 175 women at each event.
"It's just a very inspirational luncheon," said Cindy Crawford, chairwoman for the group.
"We have ladies from all ages and backgrounds," added Booth, "They come from all over."
Last month's luncheon featured local soloist Christin McFarland and a holiday-themed fundraiser. Other luncheons have showcased local businesses.
"We always have a wonderfully interesting program," Booth said.
The group also offers Bible study and prayer groups, which are held in member's homes or restaurants, said Crawford.
"It's a wonderful way for women to get to know people when you move into a new area," said Booth. "I've moved several times, and this group has always allowed me to make new contacts. Within a couple of weeks, you have instant friends."
Luncheons are typically held the fourth Tuesday of the month: no membership dues are required, but there is a fee for the meal. Free childcare will be provided.
Upcoming events will include a guest night dinner for couples and an "It's Easy Being Green" luncheon focused on conservation, said Booth.
