“Oh the Things Women Can Do” was highlighted at the Pearls of Empowerment Spring Membership Social March 16 at Triple J Manor House in Mocksville.

The Cat in the Hat greeted more than 65 Pearls and guests. Attendees brought children’s books to be donated to local agencies.

Each Pearl and guest had matched bright shapes, introduced themselves to new friends and announced facts to the group about past Pearl’s grants. Door prizes provided by local businesses were given as women enjoyed snacks and smoothies.

Members of Pearls participate in a variety of philanthropic efforts through local grants.

During this event, the Pearl’s strand grew by two new members.
