The Northford Women's Club, a member of the GFWC, is an all-volunteer, nonprofit club consisting fiery and determined women who are outspoken, vivacious, and politically and socially active. This is a very lively, fun-loving, and friendly group of career and family women and spry elderly activists who love to socialize, but also are serious in their desire to improve the community in which they live and to make a visible difference.
The activities chosen by the Northford Women's Club are geared toward improving life in Northford and the surrounding areas in a variety of ways. In the past year, the club sponsored community activities including Food Baskets for Needy Families, filling backpacks for The Conneciticut Food Bank, Scholarships for High School Seniors, and Student Service Award Scholarships.
Fundraising activities for charity include Military Whist Card Party, Walk Against Hunger for the CT Food Bank, and A Day at the Vineyard at Gouveia Vineyards. The club also occasionally hosts guest speakers with topics that are important to today's women.
