The Senior Sewing and Saving Club

"The Senior Sewing and Saving Club was founded in October
1936 by Mrs. Mabel O. McEwen with twelve charter members who soon grew to 25
members. The original purpose of the Club was to sew and save as well as to
encourage community beautification and development.
Over the years the Club has been active in many ways including
beautification of the cemetery, helping invalids, purchasing clothes, paying
hospital and school bills, gathering donations for the Library and United
Fund, and giving comfort to the elderly and ill...The Club is a co-sponor of
this project to gather African-American history in Oxford and Lafayette
