Woman’s Club members visited all schools and hand-delivered apples to teachers and support staff last month. “We’ve been doing this for many years, and both the teachers and club members look forward to it each year. The club buys the apples, and the members gather and distribute them throughout the schools. We walk into each classroom, hand the teacher, aide, intern, etc., an apple and personally thank them for their commitment to our children,” said Margo Snyder of the O’Fallon Woman’s Club. The club typically hands out the American Education Week in November. “When we first started showing appreciation 45 years ago, I think members made pencil holders for teachers, and there may have been other simple gifts provided in subsequent years, but in the past 16 years that I’ve been a member, we have delivered apples,” Snyder said.
