Phillip Gaskin, Mayor of the City of Wewahitchka, signed a proclamation declaring Feb. 7, 2014, as “Wear Red Day.”  This proclamation states that businesses in the City of Wewahitchka encourage their employees to wear red.  This day has been set aside to bring attention to the public that heart disease is the number one killer of women.  Hopefully this awareness will remind all women to see their physicians and get tested for possible heart problems that they may not be aware of.  The signing of this proclamation was done in partnership with the GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club, Inc.  Pictured are members of the Wewa Woman’s Club wearing their red; left to right:  Patty Fisher, Tunnie Miller, Carolyn Watson, Teresa Lykins and Dianne Semmes.
