GFWC National Day of Service 2023

On Saturday September 30, members of our club volunteered at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Food Pantry as participants in the GFWC National Day of Service. The first shift started 6:30am and 2 more shifts arrived during the morning, ending at 11am. It was a busy day, but very worthwhile helping the area residents who are food-insecure.

GFWC Florida State Fall Boards 2023

The Florida State Fall Boards were held on September 22-24 in Orlando. Virginia Kimball, Club President, and Linda Raymond, Club Vice President attended and were very busy all weekend. This year’s theme was Going Above and Beyond what we as GFWC Florida do—we go above and beyond in our programs, projects and especially our volunteer work.

Meeting and workshops are held to give information to help our clubs and members. We
attended Membership and DEI, Leadership, District /State Arts and Culture and Photography. They had three new classes: Leader Mentorship for those to be a mentor or a mentee. Hands on Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention, and Hands On Workshop, CSP Communication and Public Relations. Linda went to the First Time Attendees Workshop and learned about Standing Rules, what the Fall Boards was all about. Total attendees were 390 plus two other States’ officers.
