GFWC Participates in Read Across America Day
March 2, 2021
GFWC and its clubwomen have long supported Read Across America Day, an annual effort every March 2 that focuses on encouraging children to read. For its 2021 observance, GFWC is encouraging its clubs to read Tiara’s Hat Parade by Kelly Sterling Lyons in their communities, a tale describing how one girl’s storytelling helps her mother fulfill her dream of selling hats. Read Across America’s focus in 2021 is on cultural diversity and having compassion for others, and GFWC is proud to take part in this celebration.
Sharon Oliphant is filled with positive energy and gratitude for all of the opportunities she has to give back because of GFWC. In 2018 she will begin her time as Florida State President, and Sharon is assume the role and work with her enthusiastic Florida clubwomen to make a difference.
