Fallbrook Woman’s Club makes charitable contributions

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Woman’s Club presented monetary contributions to nine local organizations at their general meeting on April 12. Many hours of fundraising went into this opportunity to help the local Fallbrook community.

The major fundraising activities include two annual Mah Jongg tournaments, rummage/attic sale, and the Carriage Players Mystery Play, among many others. The high scoring winner for the January Mah Jongg tournament was Carol Ozog, who won $50.

Representing those organizations receiving donations were: Pat Braendel for Fallbrook Citizens’ Crime Prevention; Pat Jones for the Fallbrook Chorale; Carolyn Koole for Fallbrook Pregnancy Resource Center; Brad Gilpin and “Irish Mary” Burke for Hidden Treasures; Linda Flynn for Friends of the Fallbrook Library; John Choi and Explorer Jacob Graef for North County Fire Protection Explorer Post 2740; Karen Young for Fallbrook Girl’s Water Polo Boosters; Leisa Tilly and “dog in training” Nigel for K9 Guardians; and Samantha Holt for Camp Pendleton YMCA.

The Fallbrook Woman’s Club is a member of the California Federation and General Federation of Women’s Clubs International (GFWC). The GFWC celebrates 126 years of volunteer service on Federation Day, April 24. Nearly 100,000 members strong and with clubs in every state and eleven countries, GFWC is the world’s largest nonpartisan, nondenominational, international women’s organization.

“Together, we can improve our future by Living the Volunteer Spirit today,” said Babs J. Condon, who serves as GFWC 50th International President.

GFWC clubs and clubwomen are the fabric that binds not only the Federation, but also the communities in which they live and work. By living the volunteer spirit, GFWC clubwomen transform lives each day, not simply with monetary donations, but with hands-on tangible projects that provide immediate impact. With a grassroots approach that often thinks locally but impacts globally, GFWC, its clubs and members remain committed to serving as a force for global good, as it has done since its formation 126 years ago.
