I just wanted to shine a quick spotlight on the Hardy Women’s Society Men’s Auxiliary. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the guy-focused branch of the HWS, here’s a quick intro.
The founders of the HWS respected and appreciated the contributions of the men in their lives: their beaus, their fathers, their brothers, their friends. Within a decade of the 1898 founding of the society, the Men’s Auxiliary came into existence.
The men who originally joined the Auxiliary shared interests with the main group, such as gardening, travel, and art. That spirit of curiosity and creativity still infuses the Men’s Auxiliary today. In recent years, members have participated in art exhibits, writing projects, historical research, construction projects, garden design, and adventure travel.
Many of these men are associated with HWS ladies, but quite a few found the society on their own. There is much crossover between the two groups and we are exceedingly proud of the great work of the Men’s Auxiliary. So here’s a cheer for the Hardy Women’s Society Men’s Auxiliary!
