The object of our club is to develop the educational, civic and social interests of our members, to advance the welfare of the community, and to promote the progress and work of the State Federation of Pennsylvania Women. Since 1938, our club has contributed over $50,000 and over 50,000 hours of volunteer work to various organizations in and out of our community. Our club supports the arts, conservation of natural resources, skill improvement and education, involvement and interest in public and international affairs, as well as home life and womens health issues.
GFWCs motto, Unity in Diversity was taken from a speech at the first GFWC conference . . .We look for unity, but unity in diversity. We hope that your will enrich us by your varied experiences . . . Those same goals of bringing interesting ideas, speakers, diverse experiences and friendship to our womens club meetings, as well as unity to volunteer service to make our community a better place, are still what our own club is about.
