Oregon City Woman’s Club
The Oregon City Woman’s Club (Oregon) participated at the National Night Out on August 7 with a booth advertising their club. National Night Out is an annual campaign that promotes partnership between police and the community to create a safer neighborhood. The event creates a sense of community and is a chance for organizations like GFWC clubs to introduce themselves to their neighbors. It was a very hot night, but that didn’t stop all the women who came by and found out more about the club and GFWC. The Oregon City Woman’s Club members President Beverly Spilseth, Heather Chaney, Julie Peters, Sandra Browne, and Vickie Calcagno answered questions about the club and extended invitations to attend their meeting in September. Visitors were treated with the opportunity to play a game of giant Jenga!
Serving as GFWC Treasurer will be the highlight of Jolie Frankfurth’s nineteen years of community service with the General Federation of Women’s Clubs.
Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
GFWC Lawrence Classics Club
The GFWC Lawrence Classics Club (Kansas) has 19 members, and it’s an incredible mixture: one charter member has been involved since 1997; one member has been part of GFWC since 1960; there are a mother and daughter pair who are 2nd and 3rd generation clubwomen; four members are Boosters; and their youngest member only graduated from college last year. This assorted group shares the same values about volunteerism and puts them into action.
