GFWC High Springs New Century Woman’s Club
Members from the GFWC High Springs New Century Woman’s Club of District 5 in Florida visited Partnership for Strong Families to present them with 24 “Birthday Bags.” They were thoughtfully made by the club to be distributed to children in foster care and families that are receiving support from the organization. The bags contained everything for a birthday party including: hats, balloons, table decorations, toys, and prizes. It wouldn’t be a party without a cake, so cake mixes, icing, and candles were also included! Some of the birthday bags are used by caseworkers to encourage families to spend quality time with their children.
An eight-year Air Force veteran, Penny has been a GFWC member since 2008, and is currently serving as the club president of GFWC Helena Woman’s Club (Montana).

Mesquite Club, Inc.
The Mesquite Club, Inc., located in Las Vegas, Nevada, started out the club year with 120 members and now has 132 members. How has the club gained a dozen new members over such a short time? One reason is Club President Cherie Williams’ commitment to raising public awareness of the club in any way possible.
