Joan Borges 1984-1985
Nan Jackson 1985-1986

During 1984-1986, the club focused on international understanding and community education. An international theme was selected for the 1986 Lilburn Daze Festival which included an International reception, performances by Scottish and Panamanian folk dancers, and the Art from Around the World exhibit. The club provided supplies to a Honduran orphanage, made 70 hospital gowns, and contributed 120 medicine vials. LWC hosted 2 Friendship Force visitors and an exchange from Bogata, Colombia.

The club also promoted the 'Save the Butterfly' project with children's programs, planting butterfly gardens, and butterfly art, provided craft classes for senior citizens, club members, and the community, established a 'Friends of the Library Group' in 1984, fingerprinted 1520 children, and presented the first $500 Vo-Tech scholarship in 1985. 

The 1984 Lilburn Daze Festival adopted a logo which was designed by club members and depicts Old Town Lilburn.

Club members became artisans and craftmen, as they learned how to build wooden signs for the festival and silkscreened it onto signs and aprons which were worn to identify LWC members at the event. 

The 1984 and 1985 Lilburn Daze Festivals were the first to market over $5000.
