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 beginning mid year of 2021. 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.
