New GFWC International Club in Belize
September 17, 2018
GFWC welcomes the newly formed GFWC Belmopan Women’s Club and the GFWC Belmopan Juniorettes from Belize! The Belmopan Club has grown to 17 members, and they’ve completed their first service project: a uniform initiative. Many families in Belize cannot afford the required school uniforms for their children, so the clubwomen collected gently worn uniforms and distributed them to families in need. The GFWC Belmopan Juniorettes have an impressive membership of 40 young women. They’ve already had their first service project, which was to beautify the habitat of endangered birds. Both clubs already have great ideas for how to improve their communities, and we can’t wait to see them put those ideas into action. You can see more photos on Pinterest!
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.
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.
