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.
The Florence Woman’s Club is an organization that was formed in 1954. We have dedicated over 63 years of community service, benefiting numerous charities serving Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. (Celebrated our 60th year on October 28,2014.)
We feel blessed to currently have over 40 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.

GET INVOLVED!!    HAVE FUN!!

President’s Message

Hello Ladies!  

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, October   17, 1 pm at the Gathering House Nature Center.  Arrive at noon or 12:30 to eat and socialize.  

It was decided at our August meeting to bring our own individual bag lunches with beverages until after the construction is completed on the facility, probably June of next year.  (We will have meetings there through November.  Then, December Christmas Luncheon at Triple Crown, as we normally do.  And see below for our temporary meeting facility starting in January of 2018.)

**We now have another location for our meetings starting in January, for the year of 2018, as the Gathering House will be remodeled.  Meetings will be at the Florence Government Center Building on Ewing Blvd., lower level, Room B.  We voted to brown bag lunches while we are in this facility...  Parking at the Aquatic Center is easiest for access to building.

The Fall District Meeting of combined Districts 5 & 6 are on Saturday, October 14th in Berea, Ky.

Southeast Regional Conference will be at the CVG Marriott in Hebron in November.  More info. To follow...

**If you missed the August meeting and haven't paid yet, don't forget our annual $30 dues by Sept. 1st, so bring a check with you to the next meeting.

See you then and blessings to all!

Remembering 2016 

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 Heather Shaw, Community Manager and John Mays from the American Cancer Society made our afternoon a wonderful success.


May - Florence Woman’s Club Members Attended GFWC Convention

Marlene Brown and Mary Cox accompanied FWC President Betsy Conrad to the GFWC Kentucky Annual State Convention in Lexington on Friday, May 20, 2016.  Various program reports were presented.  Awards were announced for Education, Conservation, Home Life, International Outreach, and Applause on Main Street. Awards were presented for Domestic Violence Awareness, Fundraising, Arts, etc. Florence W.C. winners were: Marlene Brown — Christmas Ornament 3rd place, Joyce McCord — Crochet 1st place, Mary Cox — Needlepoint 2nd place, Marlene Brown — Watercolor 1st place, and Jane Pfarner (BCM) won 1st place in Wearable Art!  Fifth District Governor Karen Moreland later advised that Florence Woman's Club had also won 3rd place for Advocates for Children Partnership with St. Jude, and 1st place for GFWC Advocates for Children.


June - Our Fun Picnic Lunch

The FWC Summer Picnic took place at the Florence Nature Center.  A wonderful lunch was served including Chic Fil-A Sandwiches (thanks Betsy) and side dishes provided by FWC members.  We installed our Club Officers for 2016-17 at the meeting.


December -  Christmas Luncheon at the Triple Crown

We had a great time at our Annual Christmas luncheon with about 30 ladies, held at Triple Crown Country Club.  We had several guests and one new member.  It was cozy and enjoyable with the fireplace, decorations and ambiance. We made Carol Ashcraft an Honorary Member of our Club because of all the years whe worked with us planning our events.
