The GFWC Apopka Woman’s Club was chartered in 1957 with 60 members, and was federated in the same year. In January 2012, we will celebrate 55 years of service to our community.
Opportunities are provided for the development of talents, abilities and skills for each individual who participates. The many opportunities afforded through club work provide a threshold from which each individual can develop an overall awareness and deeper perspective of community, state, national and world events that affect our quality of life. Every member becomes keenly aware of the privileges and responsibilities of belonging to the world community. Club work is on a voluntary basis, with members participating in activities of personal interest. All members, however, participate in all fund-raising events. 2012 will be the 51st year for the Art & Foliage Festival, our main fundraiser.
In the past 55 years, the GFWC Apopka Woman’s Club has contributed tens of thousands of dollars and tens of thousands of dollars and as many hours to the community and the General Federation and Florida Federation projects.
Some of these projects are Habitat for Humanity, Canine Companions, Operation Smile and Special Olympics, just to name a few. In addition, the Club awards scholarships to Apopka High School seniors as well as special scholarships to adults who have the desire to continue their education in the pursuit of improving their life.
The object of the GFWC Apopka Woman's Club is to bring together women in an organization where they can use their energies and abilities to benefit themselves and their community by promoting civic, cultural, educational and social welfare.
