International Women’s Organization inviting area residents to an informational presentation | WLife

Williamson County residents are invited to attend an informal presentation on the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) to be held Sept. 21 at the main branch of the Williamson County Public Library beginning at 6 p.m.

The evening will include a discussion on the potential formation of a new chapter.

The GFWC is an international women’s organization dedicated to improving the community by improving the lives of others through voluntary service. GFWC membership is open to women of all ages and interests.

“We would like to explore the value of starting a new GFWC chapter that meets in the evenings for women who live or work in Williamson County,” said Vicki Bechet, outgoing TN GFWC President and Spring Hill resident. “The Federation has an incredible 132+ year history of ‘Living the Spirit of Volunteering’, but many people don’t know about the organization. We are therefore delighted to have the opportunity to tell our story and to invite others to join us.
