Club honors origins

We are guided by the clubwomen who went before us. Our club logo, at left, is one example: Our members voted on Dec. 1, 2011, to adopt a club logo that is based on the cover of the 1961 Scrapbook, a volume that was completed at the end of the club's first year. On Dec. 1, 1961 - exactly 50 years earlier - the club had received its certification as a member organization of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. A graphic shows the structure of the GFWC and how our club fits into it. The club is in District VI of the GFWC of North Carolina.
