FWC’s 60th Anniversary Celebration at the Gathering House

2-4 pm Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014

Florence Woman’s Club is celebrating our 60th year in the Kentucky Federation of Woman’s Clubs. Mrs. F.D. Caton was the first President - she served the 1954-55 term. There’s been a buzz about the party already, and some members we spoke to thought it would be really nice to invite former members who still live in the area, and potential new members who might consider joining the Club.

We thought it would be nice to ask Florence Mayor Diane Ewing Whalen to issue a proclamation honoring Florence Women’s Club’s 60 years of service to the community, and, of course, invite her to attend. We’ve reserved the Gathering House for Tuesday, October 28. The party will be from 2 to 4 pm, but there will be set-up as well as clean-up time —plenty of volunteers are needed.
