The members of GFWC Four Corner's Junior Woman's Club would like to present our new President Irene Ward. Irene is the 6th president of our club which this year celebrates 12 years of service to the Four Corners community.
Irene became a member of Four Corners Juniors in 2015, after moving to Davenport, Florida from Manhattan, Kansas.
She has held numerous positions within our club including: Web Master, Fashion Show Director, Recording Secretary and as an active member our Community Service Projects committees in International Outreach and Conservation.
Irene first became interested in leadership after attending the GFWC Florida State Board meeting in 2016. She was inspired by the many smart, active women doing interesting community service projects all over Florida. She has continued to regularly attend State and District meetings and has been enthused by all the great work that Florida clubs are involved in. Irene was selected by our executive board to attend the GFWC Florida Leadership Education and Development Seminar (LEADS) in February 2020.
Irene hopes to help GFWC Four Corners Juniors through these unusual times and find innovative ways to continue our work with and support of the communities and organizations we serve.
GFWC is an international women's organization founded in 1890 and dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the live of others through volunteer service. Collectively, we are Living the Volunteer Spirit.
GFWC Florida is in its second century of community service. In 1891 the Housekeeper's Club of Coconut Grove had formed. It joined the GFWC that year to become the first Florida club to do so. By 1900 several more Florida women's clubs joined.
A special thank you to P.J. Cook for graciously granting our club permission to use images of her beautiful oil and watercolor paintings, inspired by the Florida coast, for use on our website. Please visit her site to see more of her amazing artwork.
