Belvidere Women 4th in Nation

Following an invitation and all-expenses paid trip to Arizona to compete as one of the Top 5 Womans Clubs in the nation, the Belvidere Womans Club received 4th Place at the national conference Tuesday, June 24th in Chandler, Arizona.

It was a beautiful event. We received 4th Place and $1,500 president Linda Hudson told the Hebron-Thayer County edition of The Fairbury-Journal News. Thirty-five clubs competed for the top slots, and Hudson accepted the award on behalf of the Belvidere Womans Club for its National Community Improvement Program award.

The award was given for extensive community service, as the Belvidere Womans Club has been immersed in two massive projects; enhancing the Union Pacific Railroads Whistle Stop station immediately north of the railroad tracks, and the ongoing renovation of Belvideres Main Street; which continues past the railroad stop to the Thayer County Museum and Community Center.

After getting a significant makeover, whats billed as the Worlds Largest Porch Swing located in Hebron, is getting finishing touches on its new porch. Finishing up just in time for the 4th of July celebration at Roosevelt Park near downtown Hebron. The new roof atop the porch swing was mounted in mid-June. A construction crew worked to have the porch railing erected in time for the holiday weekend.

The railing will be vinyl, and the roof that we built is 24 x 40; which is the same size as the porch swing, said Brad Kent, owner of Kent Construction in Thayer County.

Everything is pretty much on schedule. Volunteers just finished painting and staining, were also doing sod and landscaping, and the gazebo is getting lattice, said Lori Werner, a member of the Hebron Revitalization Committee.
