Volunteers in Action: GFWC Ohio Austintown Junior Women’s League(OH) & GFWC LaBelle Community Woman’s Club (FL)
September 26, 2023
The GFWC Ohio Austintown Junior Women’s League(AJWL) recently completed an Environment and Recycling project. For over a year, clubwomen collected over 100 pounds of bottle caps and plastic lids. These plastic products were repurposed into a bench with the club’s name printed on it. The bench was then placed at the AJWL Butterfly and Pollinator Garden at their local park.
GFWC LaBelle Community Woman’s Club had the Honor of being invited by the Hendry County Rotary Club to create a display of all they have achieved over the past 80+ years in LaBelle. They had several old books, pictures and newspaper articles from when the club began in 1930. Several years later they elected to join the General Federation Of Women’s Clubs. The display is at the LaBelle Courthouse on the main floor next to the Tax Collector’s office.

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.
