GFWC of Tennessee District I to meet Saturday

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) of Tennessee will hold its District I Spring General Meeting on Saturday, March 16th in the Taylor Room at the Carnegie Hotel, Johnson City.

The theme for this meeting is “Visioning for the Future”.
District I has 12 clubs in more than 11 counties including the cities of Elizabethton, Erwin, Greeneville, Johnson City, Morristown, Rutledge, Sevierville and Sneedville.

The three Johnson City GFWC clubs, The Monday Club, Monday Club Auxiliary and Junior Monday, will be the hosts.

The day will consist of a Board of Directors meeting, followed by an “Elder Abuse” presentation given by Linda Evans, District Supervisor for Tennessee Adult Protective Services. The afternoon will include lunch, arts & crafts winners and outstanding achievement awards in GFWC’s Community Service Program Areas. Additionally, there will be a Memorial Service for passing club members. Throughout the day there will be opportunities to bid on the silent auction purses and shop our arts & crafts vendors. The meeting will close with door prizes.

District I service project for this meeting will be The River, a store-front ministry in downtown Johnson City, where women who need a hand can go to do laundry, shower, read, talk, learn skills, or just relax in safety. Club members are asked to bring, laundry detergent, bleach, fabric softener, and stain remover. And because The River also helps women with job interviews, they could use items such as new bras, panty hose and new panties, too.
Club women, and those interested in learning more about GFWC of TN District I, are welcome to attend.

To make a reservation, contact your local GFWC Club President or District 1 President, Barbara Powell at 423-928-6889 or email
