Scholarships available for women returning to work

Come to the Duck Derby Community Event on Saturday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT at Lake Alice Park. We have a little over one week until a whole lotta quaking goes on! 

Kicking off this exciting event will be a 5K Duck “People” Race benefiting the Wewahitchka cross country team with a start time of 9 a.m. CT. A Duck Derby is a fundraising event where rubber ducks, each tagged with a number corresponding to an individual who has previously “adopted” the duck for $5, will “race” across Lake Alice. The lucky owners of the first ducks to cross the finish line will win one of our exciting prizes. For event flyer and more information and UPDATES – gfwcwewahitchawomansclub.com and on the dashboard choose “DUCK DERBY 2024. Thank you to the more than 25 sponsors.

Women returning to work are invited to apply for one of the three $3,000 scholarships from GFWC Florida. Qualified candidates are women who need assistance with funding their education to achieve their goal of becoming self-sufficient through gainful employment. You do not have to be a club member! Deadline to submit applications and references is March 1.

Application and reference forms can be accessed on gfwcwewawomansclub.com. For more information contact Patty Fisher at trishapatty1@aol.com
