General Federation of Women's Clubs is an international women's organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.
The Winslow Woman's Club was organized in 1922 and federated the following year.
From the beginning the scope of our contributions have varied,but a constant has been contributions to our local library effort. A review of archival events reveal many accomplishments in the areas of tree planting, lobbying for garbage pickup,nursing scholarships,reading assistance and much more. In 1941 we participated in the "Bundles for Britain" and sent over 250 items that had been sewed or knitted.We had fundraisers to assist hospital building funds. We had a Junior Club organized in the 40's. We now just have the one club.
The newly elected officers for the 2012-2014 term are striving to implement new events and fundraisers. The club's primary thrust this year,as is the national organization,is Domestic Violence Awareness. We are always encouraging women to join us and make our community better through volunteerism.
