2018 GFWC Florida District 1, 2, 3 and 4 Leadership Camp

  On Saturday, July 28, 2018,  one hundred GFWC Florida Clubwomen and Junior Club Women from District 1, 2, 3 and 4 attended Leadership Camp at Camp Weed in Live Oak, Florida.  There was a Friday night social for 32 ladies who came in to spend the night before the Camp on Saturday. The Camp Goals were to have each member in attendance obtain personal growth, learn about GFWC Florida initiatives, and network with other Clubwomen. District 3 Director Candi Aubin, District 1 Director Cissy Wyninegar,  District 2 Director Jane Powell, and District 4 Director Theresa Crocket planned the Camp as a way to get Clubwomen in the Panhandle together.

     Camp presentations were given by Patty Fisher, Past District 2 Director; Shirley Combass, member of Capital City WC; Kelly Holmes, Past Director of Junior Clubs; Peggy Woodham, member of Capital City WC; and WC Tallahassee, Donna Peacock, Past District 3 Director;  Cheri Hall, Past Junior District 3 Director; and Susan McLeod, past President of WC of Tallahassee. The presentations for the day were Leadership Tips, Goal Setting, Conflict Resolution, Communications, Team Building, Protocol /Parliamentary Procedure, What’s In Store for GFWC 2018- 2020, Membership, and LEADS.  Campers wore special “camp” t-shirts, learned “camp” cheers, and a song. Information was given on the Junior Directors project “Book Hero’s”, and the Presidents Project “Operation Smile” which was presented by three of the District SMILE Chairmen in attendance: Maureen Taylor, District 1; Rhonda Alderman, District 2; and Suzan Taylor, District 3.  A game of Heads or Tails was played and $350 was raised for Operation Smile. Attendees were asked to bring items for Smile Bags. A Camp photo was made and each participant received a Certificate of Completion. A good time was had by most and plans are under way for Leadership Camp 2019.
