Get involved with Cathlamet Woman's Club

 

February 1, 2024



To The Eagle:

GFWC-Cathlamet Woman’s Club’s first meeting of the year will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 6, at noon, upstairs at the Hotel Cathlamet. We invite you to come and see what the club is all about.

The Cathlamet Woman’s Club was originally organized in 1929 and was federated in 1930 under the Washington State and National Federation of Women’s Clubs. GFWC is one of the world’s oldest and largest women’s service organizations dedicated to community improvement through volunteer services. A few highlights of our club include: supporting Dress A Girl Around the World (our club vice president is the Dress A Girl Ambassador for Oregon/Washington); supporting community schools; local projects and events; participating in Adopt-a-Highway litter pick-up, hosting an annual pie social fundraiser; we support the Area Agency on Aging and Disability of Southwest Washington (three members serve on the board); and we present an annual citizen of the year award, honoring the recipient who exemplifies the “volunteer spirit.”

The money generated from the fundraising projects goes back into our community. If you are interested in having fun, making friends, community service, enjoying a sense of community, if you just moved here, or if you would like to explore Wahkiakum County, come to a meeting. As stated on a new member application: “We welcome you and hope that you will enjoy being a member of our Club. Participation in events/projects is voluntary. Please do not ever feel pressured to participate in everything we do! We do a lot!”

Caroline Walton

GFWC-Cathlamet Woman’s Club President
