Approximately 120 women and men attended the luncheon celebration.  World Community Day has been celebrated since 1943.

Dotty Clement, First Presbyterian, was pianist for the gathering music. World Community Day Celebrations chair, Gloria Bradshaw of First Calvary Baptist led the program with the following participants: Twanda Mitchell, White Rock A.M.E.Z; Jean Kennedy, Southern City Tabernacle A.M.E.Z; Doris Brown, Jerusalem Baptist; Penny Knox, Soldier’s Memorial A.M.E.Z; Anita Hovis, Moore’s Chapel A.M.E.Z; Manie Richardson, Milford Hills UMC.

The Key Woman Award was initiated and awarded for the first time to recognize women who are leaders in their local churches. Jean Kennedy, presented three women who were nominated by their local church: Eugenia Caldwell, Ardis Chapel A.M.E.Z; Addie Brown Hargrave, Jerusalem Baptist and Phyllis Thomside, St. Luke Baptist.

Dora Correll, Ecumenical Actions Chair, announced the ingathering of donated items for the Family Crisis Council.
