Each member of the Woman's Club of Stuart serves on at least one of the following Community Service Programs.
There will be a showcase of our Community Service Committees at the October meeting, or contact the committee chair to get involved.
Arts & Culture
The Arts & Culture Committee promotes arts education and activities in our community. They support the local performing and visual arts and participate in local, district, and state arts competitions. Cultural awareness increases the ability to appreciate a variety of new people and experiences.
Chair: Susan Clifford
The GFWC Civic Engagement and Outreach Community Service Program reminds GFWC members that each of us is a part of a larger society and is responsible for undertaking actions that will create a better quality of life and foster a sense of community— locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. The four “broad strokes” of this effort include: Citizenship; Crime Prevention, Safety, and Disaster Preparedness; the Needy, Hungry, and Homeless; and Our Military Personnel and Veterans.
Chair: Bobbi Demers
The Conservation Committee seeks to enhance our environment for healthier living. They stay informed about issues affecting our natural resources and educate members on what we can do to help the environment. We encourage members to recycle, reduce plastic waste, and get involved in local water quality issues.
Chair: Laura Elsenboss & Nancy Hayden
G.F.W.C. members promote youth and family literacy in our community. They volunteer at the Gertrude Walden Child Care Center in Stuart to assist with reading, science, conservation, and other programs. They also partner with 4C's (Caring Children, Clothing Children) in their literacy program.
Chair: Gail Brinly
Health & Wellness
The human body, mind, and spirit comprise our health and wellness. To improve our wellbeing, we must address three key components: nutrition, disease prevention, and physical and emotional care. This Community Service Program aims to explore the various opportunities for awareness and advancement of each of these vital areas. They participate in Making Strides for Breast Cancer.
