Members Get Scary for a Good Cause

October 28, 2016

Fall is here, and that means crisp days, changing leaves, and Halloween festivities! Many clubs are celebrating by hosting haunted houses, trick-or-treat events, and costume parties. The GFWC Grundy Woman’s Club (Virginia) will be hosting a ‘trunk or treat’ in historical downtown Grundy. Members of the GFWC New Tampa Junior Woman’s Club (Florida) recently organized a reverse trick-or-treat event where children in costumes brought Halloween treats to residents of an assisted living facility. The GFWC Sebastian River Junior Woman’s Club goes all out with their haunted house, which they have titled “Terror on Main Street.” This year will be the club’s 36th year running the event. Members work together to build, paint, and decorate props for the haunted house. In Connecticut, the GFWC Woman’s Club of Greater New Milford partners with other organizations in their community to host the Haunted Trail. Clubwomen volunteer for this event, with part of the proceeds benefiting the club and other important causes. Whether you’re volunteering in a club event, trick-or-treating, or watching a scary movie, we wish you a safe and fun Halloween! Be sure to check out the GFWC app this weekend for photos of clubwomen getting in the Halloween spirit across the country.
