WILTON – The Wiltona Women’s Club met at the home of Patty Joyce on Dec. 14 for the annual Christmas Party. Members provided foods for the potluck luncheon.

Following the meal, Joan Moaz, guest speaker, talked about the “Literacy Volunteer Program.”

With 20 percent of the population illiterate, there is a need to work with these persons. Reasons and causes were discussed such as coming from homes where foreign language is spoken, learning disabilities, parents unable to read, problem not recognized early in life and help not available.

There are training programs in Franklin County so that help can be provided. The services are free as are the materials. Arrangements can be made for help in the home or school by calling the Literacy Volunteers of Franklin County, 778-3460.

In lieu of gifts, donations were given to the Literacy Volunteer Program. Plans for the mid-winter luncheon were made.

Wiltona will meet at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 8, at the Wilton Congregational Church. Members will provide the meal. Sandy River, licensed acupuncturist, will be the guest speaker.
