The Woman's Club of Greater New Milford has received several honors from the General Federation of Women's Clubs of Connecticut.

At the May 16 to 17 annual convention, new state officers were installed and women's clubs throughout the state, including in New Milford, were honored.

The local club was recognized with second-place awards in the category of conservation for donations to Harrybrooke Park, the Pratt Nature Center and the Animal Welfare Society of New Milford.

A second-place award was received for partnership in fundraising for the club's fall bulb sale.

Another second-place award was received in the home life category, which recognized the club's Pink Angel Cut Off event, which took place at Joe's Salon, and the Stuff the Gazebo event, a food-collection drive for Thanksgiving baskets, which took place at the bandstand on the Village Green in partnership with the United Way of Western Connecticut.

The club received a first-place award for its fundraising projects, which included the annual Teddy Bear Festival and the Penny Plus Auction.

In addition, several members entered items into the state arts-and-crafts competition and won awards.

Carolyn King won a second-place award for a patchwork Christmas bear pillow, Bridget Schrenkel won a first-place award for a decorative painting project and Carol Immohr won a third-place award for a crocheted blanket and a first-place award for a crocheted penguin toy.
