We will be having a booth at this year’s Tupelo Festival on May 19 at Lake Alice Park in Wewahitchka. Lots of information will be available about our Club and how we help our community and around the world. We will be selling homemade cakes, cookies and brownies as well as water and drinks. Come by and see what our club community projects are about.
Last week was Teacher Appreciation and the GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club provided lunch from Subway for Wewahitchka Elementary, Wewahitchka High Schools and North Florida Child Development. We are thankful for our Gulf County Teachers. After all, they have our future in their hands!

Rhonda has made a difference in our club and our community. After being diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer she decided to “Live” and made it her purpose to give to others as much as she can and to bring a smile to someone every day. Rhonda is co-chair for conservation, initiated several project including Adopt a Highway, Flower Power fundraiser, selling and planting trees for Arbor Day, delivered backpacks of school supplies as well as clothes and shoes for underprivileged children in our community. She raised awareness of our climate by initiating a pledge to observe Earth Hour and shared ways to conserve water. She is serving on the following committees; Home Life, Membership, Hacienda Girls Ranch, Communication/Publicity and Chair of Public Issues. In December she filled the position of Secretary for our Club and more recently was appointed District Presidents Project Chair for Operation Smiles.
Rhonda has recently been a graduate of LEADS. The GFWC Leadership Education and Development Seminar (LEADS) program is intended to identify GFWC members at the grass-roots level who have the potential and the desire to assume leadership positions in GFWC beyond their club.
