Ladies – while your men are busy looking at, talking about or buying tools, we offer an opportunity for you to enjoy yourself, learn new things and meet fun people.  All women are automatically members of the M-WTCA Auxiliary and we hope you will participate. During the men’s programs, the women also have a program or activity scheduled that is always informational and/or entertaining.
At our meetings, we are fortunate to be able to see interesting and educational displays that women create showcasing their collections or other items of interest. A Member’s Choice ribbon is awarded.  It is an opportunity to view fabulous and interesting collections – and to learn something new.
Our opening event at national meetings on Thursday evening is usually a Meet and Greet.  First time attendees are welcomed and members bring items they collect or craft or anything they might want to share about themselves.  We have a book club and read a variety of books. This group continues to grow in size.  Discussions are always interesting and thought provoking. We have a ladies breakfast or luncheon on Saturday.  Our meeting ends with a banquet on Saturday night. Our meals are great, the fellowship around the table is always interesting and we all look forward to the entertainment.

Our Spring Meeting will be in Springfield, Illinois June 14 – 17.
The theme for displays is “Life’s Journey” – with the broad theme, you can display a few items or many to reflect your life and interests!! 
Wednesday night there will be a Welcome Reception.
Thursday:  Many tours are planned including: Lincoln Presidential Museum, Lincoln home and neighborhood, Frank Lloyd Wright – Dana Thomas Home, also exploring Old Downtown Springfield. There are many nearby attractions!
Thursday evening we will Meet & Greet and Show & Tell!  This is a time to enjoy and get to know each other better!
Friday:  There will be a review of the book “Orphan Train by Christina Bake Kline”. (A long journey from home and the struggle to find it again form the heart of the intertwined stories that make up this moving novel.)  Come join us even if you haven’t read the book!  Discussions are lively!
Friday evening:  Kathryn Harris will portray “Elizabeth Keckly”, a former slave who was Mary Todd Lincoln’s dressmaker and friend.
Saturday, following our luncheon, learn about “The Amazing Honeybee” by M-WTCA member and beekeeper Dave Pangrac.  A short business meeting will follow.
