Check back later for the Convention Call.
The Clubs and members of the GFWC Wisconsin Southern Prairies District are enthusiastically working together to welcome all GFWC Wisconsin Clubs and members to the GFWC Wisconsin Annual State Convention at the Doubletree by Hilton at 11800 – 108 th St., Pleasant Prairie from May 2 – 4, 2019. Your time will be well spent listening to inspirational, motivational educational speakers. With your participation in workshops led by GFWC Wisconsin Leadership you’ll gain invaluable information to share with your club’s members. There are opportunities for all club members to compete in the GFWC Wisconsin Arts Contests; including Member Arts; Crafts, Member Photography, Member Writing, Youth Writing and the Helen Mears Arts Contest for students from your local area. Awards for club work, reported and submitted by the January deadline, will be given throughout the Convention sessions with the culmination during the GFWC Wisconsin Junior Awards Luncheon Saturday May 5th .
Additionally, all attendees are asked to donate items to be included in “Mommy Bags” that will be distributed to female veterans; please refer to the October 2018 GFWC Wisconsin Clubwoman (page 21) for suggested donations. One of the best aspects of this time together is the time available for making new GFWC Wisconsin friends and refreshing already established friendships.
(Shhhhh…shopping…on the trip South, you might want to build in time to exit I94 @ Drexel Avenue to see what IKEA has to offer…and when you arrive at the hotel, you’ll notice The Prime Shopping Outlet Center…and on the way home, plan on exiting I94 @ Highway 20 (Washington Ave) to visit O&H Danish Bakery…).
