Countdown to GFWC 2016 Annual Convention
June 22, 2016
We are only days away from the General Federation of Women’s Clubs 2016 Annual Convention and Shot@Life is proud to be a part of this year’s festivities. The Convention will take place in Baltimore, MD and we look forward to connecting with the nearly 1,000 GFWC clubwomen in attendance.
The national Convention is the culmination point of the GFWC Lifesaver Awards Program! Over 135 clubs in 45 states participated in the program this year raising over $50,000 to provide children in the developing world with lifesaving vaccines that they would otherwise not have access to.

GFWC Polk County Service Club
GFWC Polk County Service Club (Oregon) served as the coordinators for the Polk County Fair Talent Contest. There were two divisions (Youth from age 3-12 and Young Adult from 13-19) with 17 contestants. Laurel Jones, Vice President of GFWC Polk County Service Club, served as the Mistress of Ceremonies. Parents, grandparents, and friends all came out to fill the audience and it was very well attended. One of the Judges was GFWC Oregon State President, Pam Briggs.
