A Celebration of 125 Years!
Every year, Federation Day gives us an opportunity to reflect on our history as an organization and to celebrate GFWC’s accomplishments. From initiating a letter-writing campaign that led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906, to establishing 75% of America’s public libraries, GFWC members have advocated for positive changes in their communities for the last 126 years.
Celebrate these achievements by showing this brand-new GFWC promotional video. The video is a great tool to celebrate and promote your club, and demonstrates how GFWC is “Opening Doors” through volunteer service.
The 2015 GFWC Annual Convention was one to remember. As we celebrated our 125th Anniversary, excitement was in the air. That excitement manifested itself in this flash mob that broke out during the opening Business Session.
