Valley Clubs Begin
Convention Publicity
Plans for an extensive publicity campaign were made public Wednes
day by the Valley Federation of Business and Professional Women’s
clubs, according to Mrs. Blanche Fulgham, of Harlingen, president.
“The publicity campaign will not only bring the Valley Federation of
Business and Professional Women's clubs to the attention of the entire
state of Texas as part or inexr
preparations for the state conven
tion of Business and Professional
Women's clubs which will meet in
Harlingen, June 19, 20 and 21, but
this statewide publicity will do un
told good for the Valley in general,”
Mrs. Fulgham stated.
All sections of the state will be
covered in the campaign, according
to Mrs. Fulgham.
"Both large cities and small towns
will read about the Valley from
week to week,” she said. "Our pub
licity department has already sent
out stories to sixty papers in all
cities and towns where there are
Business and Professional Women's
"These stories will appear in the
papers throughout Texas, beginning
Sunday, May 4. They will continue
through the convention dates.”
The nine Business and Profes
sional Women's clubs in the Valley
will have part in the entertaining
of the convention, all delegates to
be taken to the Valley cities where
there are club* including Browns
ville, Harlingen. Weslaco. Donna,
McAllen, Edinburg and Ravmond
"In planning this publicity whi?h
will be read by all newspaper read
ers in the state we are keeping in
mind that the people are interested
both in the convention and in the
place it is held,” Mrs. Fulgham
"So many people include a vaca
tion trip when they attend conven
tions. We want to tell them about
the Valley so that they will either
spend several more days here, or
become so impressed with the beau
ty of the Valley that they will re
: turn soon.”
Since the Valley Federation is a
unique organization, nine clubs with
a hundred and thirty members, the
delegates will be especially inter
ested in the terltory, as the clubs
I are scattered over a portion sixty
miles long and thirty miles wide, in
the opinion of Mrs. Fulgham.
"All other service clubs, the
chambers of commerce and the
newspapers in the Valley are prom
ising their heartiest cooperation for
the state convention." she said.
"The first night of the conven
tion, Thursday, June 19. will be
open to the public, and we are ?x
j pecting to have the Harlingen au
! ditorium filled with Valley citizens
! as the program will be of interest tc
I everyone,” Mrs. Fulgham stated.
