“The World is Hugged by the Faithful Arms of Volunteers”
This statement by Terri Guillemets is a wonderful picture of those who embrace volunteer opportunities in the various Women’s Guild activities. For many years outreach programs of the Women’s Guild have provided support to several charities in Dawson and Pickens counties and that continues today. The Outreach Committee organizes visits to the Nursing Home in Jasper and assistance at the Jasper Thrift Store.

A Legacy of Service Since 1988
The Big Canoe Chapel Women’s Guild evolved from a small group of women meeting in members’ homes for fellowship, prayer, and Bible study. It was at the January 21, 1988, meeting at Dorothy de Albuquerque’s home that the “Circle” decided to seek the blessings of Dr. Vernon Broyles and the Chapel Trustees to formally establish an organization for all women in the Big Canoe Community. During 1988–1990, there were no officers and the group gathered in members’ homes and shared the role of discussion leader. Since that time, the Guild has grown in terms of membership and positive impact on the Big Canoe community. In recent years, over 250 members and their guests participate in the annual Fall Retreat and the special Christmas program. Activities of the Guild have been guided through the years by its Presidents and the various committee chairs serving the membership today.
