Are you a woman with a contribution to make to your community?
Would you like to meet and work with other such women?
We are the Women's Club of Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, a local branch of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC), the web site for which is found online at http://www.GFWC.org. GFWC has played a role in our nation's history since the early 1900s. And it all begins with local clubs such as ours.
What We Do
We meet once a month from September to May, on the third Thursday of each month. Our meetings feature speakers and presentations of interest to our members, on subjects including health, political, international, cultural, civic, and other subjects.
We help the community by raising funds for scholarships for local students, two scholarships are given each spring to graduating senior girls that may not be eligible under other criteria.
We have provided funds to the Glatfelter Library, the Community Center, Windy Hill Senior Center, the VNA and the fire companies in our local area. We were pleased to win a state award in 2012 for the pulse oximetry units and gps units for the fire companies.
We also provide and care for the urns of flowers along Main Street and at the Library. We will add two in April of 2013. This has been a 45 year long endeavor.
Our committees reflect whatever interest you may have, including Conservation and Public Affairs, among others. Committees allow each member to specialize in an area that she excels in and to get to know other club members in a more intimate group.
The GFWC-PA President's Project for the present year: "Our Children Hold Our Future." Our local Presidents project is "Veterans Affairs." Please contact our Club and learn what you might do to serve your community.
Where We Meet
We usually meet at the Spring Grove Borough Building on Campus Avenue in Spring Grove at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month. For more information about our club, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
