As club historian she has moved all club history, minutes, newsletters and artifacts from storage to the new Rotonda West Community Center building where the club meets. In 2018 she worked as a member of the By-laws Committee in reviewing and revising changes when appropriate. She meets and greets new residents of the community at Open House which is held at the Rotonda West Association (RWA) Community Center. Posey has acted as liaison between our Club and the Rotonda West Association in efforts to promote the activities and needs of the Woman’s Club. She handles the club Memorial Scholarship Fund which was started several years ago. Posey has kept the” Welcome to Rotonda” Committee going when it was about to fall apart. This project is one of the largest fund raisers for our scholarship program we have in our club. This Committee contacts merchants in the area to obtain ads for a Sponsor Directory. Once the ads have been collected, Posey assists in the layout of the book and edits before it is sent to the printers. She also assists the Scholarship Committee to evaluate and make the selection. Visiting Nursing Homes and Assisted Living facilities with the club choral group (Tonettes) is one of her favorite volunteer jobs. As the club pianist for the group she organizes all the music, and contacts the facilities to setup the time to entertain the residents.
