and the Winner Is…

GFWC Woman’s Club of Leesburg

Yes, we won FIRST PLACE in our category and a $100 prize! Thank you to our Arts Director Darlene Violetta and her Flamingo Team.

Day in the Park was a huge success. WCL volunteers helped with several booths from hat decorating, to face painting and other fun things. All 700 four year olds had a great time and all volunteers were treated to a light breakfast and a wonderful box lunch from Publix. Hope you will volunteer next year. It was a great day at the Park!

Haunting of Hill House – Freaky visitors, loud screams, creaking doors and a great mystery. Seven awesome WCL members volunteered for several performance at the Melon Patch Theatre. Our ladies were ushers, share the wealth ticket sellers, and refreshment stand workers. We all got to see this great production FREE! More upcoming dates February – May. Sign up now!

District 7 meeting – Three officers attended the annual District Meeting in Apopka where they heard a great speaker from GFWC Florida sharing great ideas on Membership, Leadership, and Communication.
