This project was designed to study the importance of the Midway Woman’s Club and the positive affect that it has had on the city since being started. The main focus of our project was the Build a Better Community project, in which Midway Woman’s Club was a key factor. This project included things such as clean up week, moving the city dump outside of the city limits, improving the African American school, improvement of roads and bridges, and building a playground. All of these projects were key in helping make Midway a better community and Midway Woman’s Club was a key factor to this being accomplished. We were able to research these projects by having the luxury of using scrapbooks made by the Midway Woman’s Club, and gathering oral histories from community partners. This project was designed to show the community the importance of club women and their role in the historical past that Midway holds.
