Two of our members represented the GFWC Woman’s Club of Stuart at the state convention on April 21, 22, and 23 in Orlando Florida, Paula Rosen, Past President, and Reba Shepard, Historian. They arrived Friday afternoon with our Club’s Arts & Crafts. Saturday turned out to be a big day for our Club. Our members received two first place ribbons in Arts & Crafts (Harriet Gleason for her carved bear and Jacqueline Brock LaLone for her photo of a Greek man,) one second place (Laura Elsenboss for her digital scrapbook) and one third place (Grace Linn for her footstool)! Harriet also won "Best in the Show!
Our Club also won in Category 5 (designated by the number of members in a club) Number 1 in the state for Education! Congratulations Girls!
To accomplish our goals, GFWC Florida women participate in six (6) community service programs (CSP's), as subscribed by the General Federation of Women's Clubs for all 100,000 worldwide members, as well as programs and projects designed by local clubs.
Our clubwomen have been advocates for over 100 years, and continue GFWC's rich history of advocacy. We truly have a voice and an impact in our nation's policy, as we work through a grassroots network of advocates to support legislation that is crucial to the mission of the Federation. As a result of our advocacy, our voices are heard on Capitol Hill as well as in Tallahassee.
Our members are your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and acquaintances. We are professional women, homemakers, elected officials, business owners, students, retirees, wives, mothers, and single women.
GFWC Florida Federation Headquarters is located in Lakeland, Florida.
