Who We Are
Welcome to the Florence Woman's Club Website!  We are a member of the General Federation of Women's Club, the GFWC. If this is your first viewing of our site, we hope you will take a little time to learn about this dynamic group of Northern Kentucky women.  We collaborate on a variety of community service projects and sponsor one major fundraiser per year. The members have become friends over the years, so our meetings are really enjoyable.  The Club generally meets the third Tuesday of the month, beginning at 1:00. 
Meeting currently is being held at the Florence Branch of Boone County Library, 7425 US-42.
(The prior meeting location was the Evelyn Kalb Gathering House of the Florence Nature Park, located at 7200 Nature Park Dr.(off Banklick St.) Florence, KY.*. See location change for 2018-19.  Maybe returning there after August, 2019.  More to come...
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.  Our Club flower is the hyacinth.
We feel blessed to currently have over 30 dynamic members of all ages with a strong sense of friendship, as well as a common purpose to help those in need.
We have one large fundraiser a year, plus service projects that promote education, conservation, arts, public issues, and international outreach in the community.
