Winter in Aiken

Members from Woodside Plantation Country Club did not enjoy many outdoor activities during January or February. The “Big Chill” however did not stop members from volunteering at the various charities in Aiken.

Several country club members have been volunteering their time and talents to a business organization named, SCORE (Counselors to America’s Small Business). They work with the local Chamber of Commerce providing their members access to SCORE’s services. The organization presents business workshops and seminars and serves as an outside advisory board to local small businesses. Business mentoring services are provided by active and retired business executives and entrepreneurs who donate their time and expertise as mentors to assist new and established small businesses.

Volunteers enjoy working with new entrepreneurs starting their own business by helping with business problems, such as marketing, financial, social media, human resources and business plans. They also help existing business’s expand by helping with location, taxes and resources.

Women of Woodside

The Women of Woodside continue to be busy with fundraising initiatives for several charities. The Pancake Breakfast at Fatz raised $2,360 for the Aiken-Augusta Wounded Warriors.

Every February the Women of Woodside run “Give with Your Heart Campaign.” This year Hitchcock Health Care and ACTS will benefit from all the items collected during this campaign.

Linda Walters serves as the vice president of the Board of Governors at Woodside Plantation Country Club.
