GFWC Unveils 125th Anniversary Stamp
March 4, 2015
The 125th Anniversary stamp is here! GFWC celebrates 125 years of Federated service in 2015, and we wanted to commemorate the occasion with a new stamp design.
In 1996 the United States Post Office awarded GFWC a 5-cent stamp in honor of its 75th anniversary. Although stamps don’t quite hold the same weight they once did, it was decided to produce a new design as part of our 125th anniversary celebration. We’ve come up with a striking, modern look that still echoes GFWC’s history and legacy. The deep red is taken from the GFWC color emblem. The rose, the official flower of GFWC is featured in the lower right. And GFWC’s new tagline, Living the Volunteer Spirit, is proudly displayed below the 125.
For those contributing to GFWC’s Capital Campaign, a framed, commemorative piece featuring the stamp and the 75th anniversary stamp will be yours to cherish. We are also planning to offer the 125th Stamp design to purchase through Stamps.com in the near future. Stay tuned to News&Notes for more details when the stamp becomes available.
Volunteers in Action: Glendale Woman’s Club
When it comes to membership presentations, GFWC Missouri State Membership Chairman Lisa Cook isn’t afraid to don an apron to present an unforgettable “recipe for membership” skit.
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.
