The busy season is quickly approaching. I'll be attending several events that have become regulars from the local ramp fest in April, the memorial day event in state college. I am looking forward to going to GFWC  it is a great organziation that does volunter work on both a local and international level. With this group you will find a wonderful group of women working towards the same goal to better our communities, educate and reach out to those most in need. I'll be a vendor at the pennsylvania conference on May 2nd and for more information check with your local chapter or go to 
I enjoy working this event, as I find the women exude confidence and are a treasure to accompany. If you ever wondered how you might help in your community, I seriously urge anyone interested  to research and consider joining a group of women who know that commitment does bring results. 
I added a little information of the history of the  website. 

History and Mission

The General Federation of Women's Clubs is an international women's organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. 


1868: GFWC's roots can be traced back to 1868 when 
Jane Cunningham Croly (1829-1901), a professional New York journalist who wrote under the pen name of Jennie June, attempted to attend a dinner at an all-male press club honoring British novelist Charles Dickens. Croly was denied admittance based upon her gender, and, in response, she formed a club for women. She chose the name Sorosis, a Greek word meaning "an aggregation; a sweet flavor of many fruits."

1890: Jane Croly, founder of Sorosis, extended an invitation to women's clubs throughout the United States to attend a ratification convention in New York City. Sixty-three clubs attended on April 23-25 and took action to form the General Federation of Women's Clubs. 

1898: GFWC unanimously passed a resolution against child labor. With the help of clubwoman Jane Addams (1860-1935), child labor became a major area of concern for the Federation. In 1901, Addams headed the Federation's Child Labor Committee to etc formore information or to join a chapter in your area, you can look it up on Together we can make a difference. 

I'll be listing events as I secure dates and times, as always you can find me weekly at the local summer and fall market starting in May, 2009.

If already a member of GFWC, I hope to see you in may at GFWC Pennsylvania | May 1-2, 2009
