AWC partners work with outside non-profit groups to provide community support where there is a need. From helping with the Arley Senior Center to coordinating with area churches for their soup supper after the Christmas parade, the AWC looks for ways to help make a positive difference in the lives of area residents. As a way to reach our own members and encourage participation, social activities help everyone get to know one another better while learning the strengths of the group. (Inreach)

The Sunshine Committee keeps up with AWC members who may need a little “sunshine.” AWC officers and members are informed of those who may need a little encouragement, a “get well” card or a “missing you” note. The committee is comprised of the chairperson and members who each take a month to coordinate Sunshine efforts.
The Sunshine Committee coordinates the “take a meal” component to help schedule meals when an event befalls one of our members. Special assistance may be rendered when there is a need for transportation, grocery shopping or a bit of help around the house.
Spend the day together!
What better way to socialize with friends and learn more about the state we now call home? Each month, an interesting destination is explored. The trips are researched, scheduled, and organized by Chairs...and include an interesting lunch spot.
Members sign up in advance, and then meet to carpool. New ideas are always invited and the trips are especially fun for new AWC members. Spend time together and get to know each other better!

We all need a little break every now and then. We will meet up, drive off and enjoy.
Some previous excursions included a Trivia Night at Tallulah Brewing in Jasper, bowling, and an artistic evening of painting in Cullman.
Look forward to relaxing and spending a fun night out with our AWC ladies!

The Arley Christmas Parade is held on the first Wednesday evening in December. Parade typically starts at Dollar General / Smith Lake Flea Market at 5:00 pm, with line-up an hour before. This Committee is responsible for coordinating with the town (for a permit), organization of line-up and supplying parade rules to all participants. And coordination with area churches who provide soup and fellowship after the parade at Meek School.
Photos with Santa, too!
It is a great way to spread the Christmas cheer!
Co-Chairs: Montie & Mark Pafford
