The WHRC Newsletter is a quarterly publication which highlights the history, achievements, and collections maintenance of GFWC Clubs around the country. Each Newsletter features a theme which is chosen to reflect a milestone in GFWC or American history, or significant triumphs in the preservation of GFWC and women’s history. Articles are submitted and written by clubwomen to emphasize the diversity of members, histories and accomplishments within GFWC. Members can sign up to receive the WHRC Newsletter through the communications preferences attached to their record in the GFWC Member Portal. For further assistance, contact GFWC@GFWC.org.

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.
