Both the newsletter and the speech are in Word format so that you are able to use any of the information contained in them for your own use. Please feel free to do so.
And, remember please share any fundraisers that you have done or are doing for our international partners. Write up your fundraising ideas and send them to me for our next issue coming out in October.

We have a new GFWC Newsletter (click to open in new tab). I hope you all have a chance to read it. There are links to past articles available there, too.
My goal is to have at least one new club per district during my term as President. We have great works ahead of us, ladies, I know together we can accomplish much!
Hi there, and Happy 2017! I’m sure we’re all looking forward to a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
We have put the Annual Election Report and the Membership Report forms in the Documents area. Please download them and be sure to send them off soon!
If you happened to download them yesterday, please retrieve a new copy of the the Membership form — it has an updated address.
I look forward to all the great things we’re going to do this year!
Images from the Convention
District Conventions are in full swing, and we are having a great time.
Northeast District put on a fashion show that I can only call unforgettable. I came away with a whole new appreciation for the multi-use of certain garments!
SouthCentral District hosted a very informative panel discussion on the child welfare system in Oklahoma. As you know, we are looking for a long-term partner for the GFWC Signature Project. The speakers on this panel will be a great resource for us.
Last weekend in Southwest District we painted Santa Clauses. Let’s just say my Santa makes scary clowns look downright benign! But what fun we had!
This Saturday it is Durant’s turn to host Southeast District. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
Keep having fun with GFWC
The PDF document has been updated. Please see South West District Directory for the removal of Sallisaw — it should only be listed in North East District.
Our thanks to McAlester Fortnightly for forwarding the condolence letter to us as well.
