Members to attend District 2 spring workshop

The GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club is excited to announce their participation in the upcoming General Federation of Women’s Clubs District 2 Spring Workshop. 

This significant event will be held in Marianna, hosted by the GFWC Marianna Woman’s Club. It promises to be a day filled with recognition, celebration, and community spirit, strengthening the bonds between our clubs and furthering our shared mission of community improvement.

District Director Stephanie Cantrell, a dedicated member of the Woman’s Club of Panama City, will be presiding over the meeting. We are also honored to have Kay Dennis as the guest speaker, who will be addressing the critical issue of human trafficking.

The meeting will include the presentation of awards for outstanding achievements recognized earlier this year at the GFWC Florida Convention in Orlando. Additionally, congratulations will be extended to the new administrations of many of our clubs, as most officers have recently been installed for the 2024-26 term.

District 2 is comprised of several clubs from the surrounding area: The Chattahoochee Woman’s Club, Chipley Woman’s Club, GFWC Gulf Coast Woman’s Club; GFWC Marianna Woman’s Club, GFWC Woman’s Club of Panama City, GFWC Philaco Woman’s Club of Apalachicola, and GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club.

We are especially proud to recognize the GFWC Philaco Woman’s Club of Apalachicola, one of the first 12 clubs to be federated in the state of Florida, for their remarkable 115-year anniversary. Similarly, the GFWC Marianna Woman’s Club will be celebrated for their 105-year anniversary, marking over a century of dedicated service and community impact.

Each club in our district takes turns hosting the district meetings, and the hosting club selects a non-profit for the sister clubs to support through donations. This year, the GFWC Marianna Woman’s Club has chosen Chrome Retreat-Christ Helping Rescue Oppressed Men Everyday as their non-profit. 

The Red Apple Award will be presented to the club that donates the most items, adding a touch of friendly competition to our philanthropic efforts. This initiative not only fosters camaraderie but also significantly benefits the chosen non-profit.
