HPWC celebrates 30 years, pupils give Christmas gifts to center


The Hi Point Women’s Center hosts a 30th Anniversary Celebration of Life event Thursday, Jan. 22, at the Bellefontaine First Church of God. 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with light refreshments available. The program begins at 7 p.m., and will reflect on the past three decades for the center and what’s in store for the future. 

In other Hi Point Women’s Center news, Calvary Christian School kindergarten students conducted a Christmas-time project, where they brought in items for mothers and infants being served by the center.

The items were gift wrapped and then delivered to the women’s center. The students donated the items instead of purchasing gifts for each other this year.
