Updated: Nov 3, 2021

Power of 100 Women Lincoln County held its third quarter event on August 9th, 2021. At this event, three local non-profit applicants were selected to present for their organization to receive the group’s donation. Carriage House Players, Friends of Lincoln County Veterans, and Humane Society of Lincoln County presented for 5 minutes each about their organization’s mission and need for additional funding. Carriage House Players (CHP) is a community theater group located in Fayetteville. CHP spoke to Power of 100 about the benefits of having a local theater group and offering a summer drama camp for children ages 8 to 17. CHP explained their need for funds to recover from the impacts of COVID and to remodel its new building. Their next event is Sarah Plain and Tall beginning November 4. Friends of Lincoln County Veterans spoke about how Lincoln Countians came together to create a space solely to pay tribute to Veterans that lived in Lincoln County. The Warrior Exhibit is open Tuesday thru Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm at 113 Main Ave., North. The Warrior Frame Shop offers framing to raise donations to maintain the exhibit. The Human Society serves our community with the needs of orphaned, neglected, and abused animals in Fayetteville and Lincoln County. Donations provide the shelter with pet food, shelter, blankets, utilities, maintenance, equipment, and more. Volunteers are always welcome to assist with dog walking, cleaning, photography, answering phone calls, and lots of other tasks. Members then voted and selected Carriage House Players to be the winner of Power of 100’s donation. This event also raised awareness of these organizations’ needs and how they benefit the community. At last count, Carriage House Players received $5,100 from Power of 100 Women Lincoln County members. Power of 100 Women is a national movement with a simple concept. 100 Women donate $100. Power of 100 Women meets once every three months to hear from three nonprofits that benefit Lincoln County. Then members will vote to select one of these organizations and donate $100 directly to the winning organization. Power of 100 was created to see a huge impact on the community by donating $100 multiplied by 100 members for a $10,000 award. Lincoln County Museum was selected during the previous quarter meeting and received $4,450. In just one year of meetings, Power 100 Women Lincoln County members donated over $20,000!
