Women’s Club Seeks Volunteers
The GFWC (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.
In the Exeter Area, we have three GFWC Clubs. One is the Girls in Action, a club for high school girls who are involved with community service, another is the Exeter Women’s Club. They meet the first Tuesday of the month during the day. The third, the Exeter Area GFWC, meets the second Thursday of every month in the evening. There are twenty-four GFWC clubs through out the state of NH and thousands worldwide.
Too often when we ask a potential member to join an organization, the response is that they may be uncertain, or they are unsure of what it would involve. We all have twenty-four hours to work with each day, but what we do with that time varies greatly. The trick is to make those minutes count for more.
We could definitely use help with our GFWC volunteer projects. So please look at what you do with your time. You may have a little one going off to school and find you have more free time, you may have an older child heading to middle or high school and have more time, you my have an infant or toddler and want to have a night out with local women for our monthly meeting. Maybe you were a GFWC member in the last place you lived. You may want to meet local women because you are new in the area or feel strongly about a community service project our club is active in. You may be retired and miss talking with other women and so on. Once you attend a meeting, find out if it works for you. Ask questions and think about attending as a guest a second time.
