What brought you into a local club? Who encouraged you to join GFWC? Even if a friend invited you to your first club meeting, chances are you later found out your grandmother was once part of a club, or perhaps your great grandmother.
Generations of GFWC clubwomen have joined together to make a difference in their own families and communities. If this sounds like your story, your journey, your path to GFWC, then you are invited to join The GFWC Legacy Woman’s Club. Likewise, you’re welcome to join if you are the one who started it all and were the first in your family to embrace the notion of Unity in Diversity.
The club supports the GFWC Women’s History and Resource Center.

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.
