Florence Woman's Club
Welcome to the Florence Woman's Club Website!
We hope you will take a little time to learn about this dynamic group of Northern Kentucky women. We are a member of the General Federation of Women's Club, the GFWC.
The Club generally meets the third Tuesday of the month, beginning at 1:00 pm. Meetings will be held at the New Gathering House of the Florence Nature Park, located at 7200 Nature Park Dr. (off Banklick St.) Florence, KY.
Come early, enjoy a light lunch and to network!
The Florence Woman’s Club is an organization that was formed in 1954. We have dedicated over 65 years of community service, benefiting numerous charities serving Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati.
We collaborate on a variety of community service projects and sponsor one major fundraiser per year plus service projects that promote education, conservation, arts, public issues, and international outreach in the community. The members have become friends over the years, so our meetings are really enjoyable. We feel blessed to have many dynamic members of all ages with a strong sense of friendship, as well as a common purpose to help those in need. Our Club flower is the hyacinth.

Notes From The President
Our Annual Christmas/Holiday Luncheon will be held at Triple Crown Country Club on Tuesday, December 21st. Doors open at 11:30. Fee will be $25 pp with choice of Spinach Salad with Chicken, or Chicken with Scalloped Potato entrees. Let Barb Crume know if you're attending - no later than Dec. 14th. The Kentucky Dulcimer group will entertain us. Guests are welcomed. It had been decided that members will donate either money or food items for GOPantry, a non profit which benefits and feeds underprivileged kids over the holidays (Go Boxes). Chris Sturgil is heading this up. Preferably, money can be donated to us now through Dec. 2 and then Meijer's Store will double any amount of dollars we bring in, using their gift card program being held. Each GoBox costs $50, so money is needed to buy supplies for our kids. Contact Chris for pickup or for more information. 859/816-6660.
