The Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights begins a new year with an opening tea, "A Hearth Warming -- A Shower of Love," at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow at the clubhouse on Hammonds Ferry Road.

The club has contributed over the past few years to Hearth House, a Lansdowne transitional shelter that helps displaced women and children.

Those attending are asked to contribute household items, toiletries and personal items for the residents of Hearth House and the apartments the organization is setting up for displaced families. Brenda Chwang, executive director of Hearth House will discuss plans for these new accommodations.

Club president Frances Thomas, who will conduct her first meeting, said that first vice president Jane Bond will officiate at a ceremony for new members.

The club's first fund-raiser of the year, selling holiday wrapping paper, will be introduced by Chairwoman Fran Purper. Brochures will be distributed and orders taken from tomorrow until the club's October meeting.

Guests are welcome and anyone who might be interested in learning more about its goals and activities is especially invited.
