Oh, What a Wonderful Holiday Open House!
December 23, 2020
Hosting the 2021 Holiday House remotely did not dim the sparkle at GFWC Headquarters on December 16. Inspired by the 2020 holiday theme, What a Wonderful World, the home’s entry and entertainment areas featured a sparkling winter wonderland accented with woodland wildlife. Two majestic Christmas trees twinkled brightly with silver and gold, and many State Federations added to the holiday magic by donating an ornament or two for the tree. Watch the parade of ornaments video.

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.
