Wake Forest Woman’s Club

Rooted in service to the community since 1961


The Wake Forest Woman's Club invites you to peruse this website and learn about our organization, a nonprofit community service club chartered by the General Federation of Women’s Clubs in 1961. Our focus is the enhancement and support of the social, cultural, civic and educational well-being of our community. Throughout the years our charity efforts have held true to this purpose, and we are an integral part of Wake Forest history and development. We welcome you to seek us out and come meet our members. Our general meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month, September through May at the Wake Forest Community House (133 W. Owen Ave), beginning at 6 p.m. Come join us as we find satisfaction through volunteer action! It’s a journey well worth taking.

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 logo based on the cover of the first Scrapbook.
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, and a slideshow gives examples of how GFWC clubwomen have lived "The Volunteer Spirit"!
The club is in District VI of the GFWC of North Carolina.

Just the facts ...

The club holds a general meeting the first Thursday of each month from September through May; between meetings, we are busy with service projects and other activities.
Please download our fact sheet at left for more information or contact Martha Loftin or Debra Wood, our membership co-chairmen.
