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.  *****Our location for our meetings starting January 16, 2018, for the year of 2018, will be at the Florence Government Center Building on Ewing Blvd., lower level, Room B while the Gathering House is being remodeled. The usual meeting location has been 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.). 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!

Remember the Gathering House is being remodeled. **NOTE -  our next meeting will be on Tuesday, February 20that the Florence Branch of the Boone County Public Library, 7425 U. S. 42,  Florence, Kentucky.  The library is next to the Florence Senior Center.** Meeting will be at 1:00 pm. This is a temporary location.

It was decided that while the Gathering House is being remodeled, the location scheduled for our regular meetings, will be at the Florence Government Center Building on Ewing Blvd., lower level, Room B.  Unfortunately, the Florence Govt. Bldg. where we were expecting to have our meetings experienced recent flooding. We will not be using the Government Building until May of this year. Remember, both of these locations are temporary locations.

At the meetings come early to socialize.  Bring your own brown bag lunches and beverages while we are at these facilities. Parking for the Government Building giving easiest access to the building will be at the Aquatic Center.

**If you haven't paid your membership dues yet, don't forget our annual fee of $30, so bring a check with you to the next meeting.

See you then 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.
