Who We Are
Welcome to the Florence Woman's Club Website!  We are a member of the General Federation of Women's Club, the GFWC. If this is your first viewing of our site, we hope you will take a little time to learn about this dynamic group of northern Kentucky women.  We collaborate on a variety of community service projects and sponsor one major fundraiser per year. The members have become friends over the years, so our meetings are really enjoyable.  The Club generally meets the third Tuesday of the month, beginning at 12:30. The usual meeting location is the Evelyn Kalb Gathering House of the Florence Nature Park, located at 7200 Nature Park Dr.(off Banklick St.) Florence, KY.*
The Florence Woman’s Club is an organization that was formed in 1954. We have dedicated over 64 years of community service, benefiting numerous charities serving Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati.  Our Club flower is the hyacinth.
We feel blessed to currently have over 30 dynamic members of all ages with a strong sense of friendship, as well as a common purpose to help those in need.
We have one large fundraiser a year, plus service projects that promote education, conservation, arts, public issues, and international outreach in the community.

President’s Message

Hello Everyone!

Please make note of a change for April 17, 2018.  The luncheon scheduled for this Spring at the Triple Crown Country Club is going to have to be cancelled because of logistics. We will instead have a meeting at the Florence Library at our usual times.  Looking for a new leadership team.  We are asking members instead, to make a contribution to the Florence Woman's Club. This would be in the amount of what you would have paid for a ticket, $35 plus any extra contribution in the amount of costs you may have incurred making a basket for the event. This generosity will help to maintain our budget for the Club. Make your check out to the Florence Woman's Club and mail it to P.O.Box 6537, Florence, KY 41022-6537

Regarding our next meeting on Tuesday April 17th, at 1:00 P.M. we will be at the Florence Branch of the Boone County Public Library, 7425 U. S. 42,  Florence, KentuckyThis library branch is next to the Florence Senior Center. This is a temporary location.  Part of our agenda at this meeting will be to nominate members for the upcoming Board positions. Voting for the positions will take place at our May meeting.  Speaker will be Ed McLaughlin from FreeStore Foodbank.

At the meetings come early to socialize.  Bring your brown bag lunches and beverages while we are at the temporary facilities. 

For your information, it was decided that while the Gathering House is being remodeled, we would use the Florence Government Center Building on Ewing Blvd., lower level, Room B. for our regular meetings. Parking for the Government Building will be at the Aquatic Center. Unfortunately, the Florence Govt. Bldg. where we were expecting to have our meetings, experienced flooding in the past month. Therefore, we will not be using the Government Building until later this year once it is reopened for meetings. Remember, both of these locations are temporary locations.

See you at the meetings and blessings to all!

Remembering 2017

March - Spring Luncheon at Triple Crown Country Club Was a Success

Our Spring Fundraiser helping the American Cancer Society at the Triple Crown Country Club in Union, KY took place on a beautiful Spring-like Tuesday.  We had approximately ninety members and guests for our event. The room radiated of Spring, friendship and getting together for a good cause....primarily benefiting the American Cancer Society. Silent auctions, live auctions, a wonderful lunch and presentations by Katherine Nero, WCPO tv and Heather Shaw, Community Manager from the American Cancer Society made our afternoon a wonderful success.
