Volunteers in Action: Women’s Club of Farmingdale & GFWC Woman’s Club of Bridgeport

At the Women’s Club of Farminngdale (NY) February Meeting, 2nd VP Lynda Leone scheduled a wonderful program by Canine Companions. Thank you to Linda Herskowitz, Craig Barbieri and Ann Johnson and their beautiful “canine companions” that brought so much joy to the meeting. They shared so much valuable information including the fact that besides helping adults with physical disabilities or deafness, children with disabilities, veterans with physical disabilities, hearing loss and PTSD, they also work in health care, criminal justice and educational settings. They foster a nationwide community of dedicated volunteers, donors, advocates and clients who believe in their mission. For more information, please visit

At the March meeting of the GFWC Woman’s Club of Bridgeport, Membership Co-Chairmen, Renee Starkey and Gay Jeffers, led the members during a shamrock painting project. This was a combination Saint Patrick’s Day activity and a March Craft Month activity. The club’s paintings were then delivered to residents of a local personal care facility.
