From Our President
As we begin our new “calendar year,” I want us to continue our traditions, acknowledge our members’ accomplishments and leadership abilities, and encourage our club to explore new avenues of community service projects and fundraising events.
My theme as President is “Igniting the spark to give from the heart to help our community shine”. My goals for the year are to spark more interest in club participation, focus on our community through service projects to help our Ruskin community, to increase our visibility in the community to help us sparkle and shine, to dedicate more hearts for our community through increased membership and increase education regarding the history of our club, GFWC Florida and GFWC to understand where our spark started.
We have such a diverse and talented group of ladies in our club that we can accomplish anything - as we have done for the past 111 years as a club. I am looking forward to working side by side with all the members of the RWC while we establish stronger friendships and do some amazing volunteer work. We should strive to work smarter, not harder as we all are soon to be or already are in our Senior years of life.
We are thankful for our spouses that have contributed to the club and done some of the “heavy lifting” (from cutting up watermelon to playing Left, Right, Center on Game Nights to being an elf at Christmas to filming our fashion show or painting railings on the clubhouse). We call them our Club Boosters and we welcome more to join in on the fun to become a Booster also!
Looking forward to a fun and productive year for the GFWC Ruskin Woman’s Club.
RWC's mission is to maximize the potential of our community by ensuring the continued development of educational, cultural, and social opportunities through community services and resources of our members.
