Wewahitchka Veteran’s Park (coming soon)
The GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club is partnering with the City of Wewahitchka to establish a Veteran’s Park to honor our veteran’s. We are selling 4x8 bricks with branch of service emblem, rank, branch and veteran’s name for $56. These pavers will be placed around two monuments as well as the United States of America flag and all service flags in their perspective order. This site is located at 169 HWY 71 N, in front of Lake Alice Park. A simulated photo will be published at a later date. Donations would be greatly appreciated. Call any GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club member to place an order. For more information contact Carolyn Watson at 850-340-1940.

GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club and Operation Smile
Over 30 years ago GFWC partnered with Operation Smile, a nonprofit medical service organization founded in 1982 and based in Virginia, U.S. Operation Smile is one of the oldest and largest volunteer-based organizations dedicated to improving the health and lives of children worldwide through access to surgical care. Operation Smile has extended its global reach to more than 60 countries through its network of credentialed surgeons, pediatricians, doctors, nurses, and student volunteers. A surgery cost $240 and takes 45 minutes to give a child a smile. GFWC Wewahitchka Woman’s Club helps not just our own community but worldwide. A GFWC Florida sponsored mission trip with a few lucky participants will be organized for the 2020 year. Tickets are being sold for $25 for a chance to go on a mission with airfare, hotel and breakfast and lunch all paid for. They will be available at our Tupelo Festival booth.
Come out to the 2019 Tupelo Festival on Saturday and visit our booth to learn more about this and other volunteer services we offer. Look for the Operation Smile Gumball Machine .25 cents a smile.
