Wake Forest Woman’s Club

Rooted in service to the community since 1961

Welcome!


The Wake Forest Woman's Club is a community service organization of volunteers. We work to enhance our community of Wake Forest, N.C., by participating in projects that highlight the arts, conservation, education, home life, international outreach and public issues. Together, we make more joy!

—Salina Gary | Club President, 2016-2017

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. The club is in District VI of the GFWC of North Carolina.
