GFWC Wake Forest Woman’s Club
The GFWC Wake Forest Woman’s Club, located in Wake Forest, North Carolina, has served the community for over 50 years. From sponsoring the establishment of the Wake Forest Public Library in 1961 to creating the Books for Laundromats program in 2011, members enjoy keeping busy.
The Wake Forest Woman’s Club is known as the “go-to” club in the community. Four years ago, the club was invited to handle registrations for a brand-new Charity Car Show. This event is still going strong, powered 100 percent by community volunteers, and the Wake Forest Woman’s Club receives funds from the proceeds based on participation. The club is always available to help in the community, and members love that the club is known for that.
Recently, club members helped the Wake Forest High School Juniorettes with a crochet project to benefit From Ewe to You, an organization that donates homemade blankets, booties, hats, and scarves to people in shelters and hospitals. Members held workshops to teach the Juniorettes the basics of crocheting.
The club is also an active supporter of the Youth Leadership Program, Back Pack Buddies, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, and Relay for Life.
Personable, professional, and a proven leader, Marian St.Clair serves as GFWC First Vice President. Marian’s unique talents and skills make her a dedicated and dynamic leader.
