Open House/Community Event Collaboration

Womans-Club-of-Spokane-Clubhouse-Late-June-2014

SUNDAY   AUGUST 24 1:30PM   9TH and WALNUT

Alright Everyone, Here is the Summer event we’ve all (even if unknowingly) been waiting for! The first half hour will consist of a Meet & Greet and tours of this beautiful building.  Here we will be allowed to use, teach and attend all kinds of community enrichment classes and gatherings (from Stargazing to Salsa Dancing to Science Fairs to Craft Parties to Support Groups to events for parents with events for children in a neighboring room…and seminars!…the opportunities are endless) .  Imagine the value of such a place especially in the colder months! We want to hear YOUR ideas and see, if we were to provide these low cost and sometimes free and sometimes profitable classes, if anyone would attend. It’s all up to YOU. Whatever dreams you’ve been having: come see this building; learn a tad about the history of the place, and be a part of (even if in silence–there will be a drop box for ideas) the discussion about things about to be happening in the realm of FUN COMMUNITY ENRICHMENT EVENTS! Let’s have fun and get stuff done!!! There will be light refreshments. Invite/bring your friends!!!!

Ashley Laitinen, is the Woman’s Club Chair of Enrichment Committee and has volunteered much of her summer to help make this exciting thing happen.

WCS Logo ob sq

In 2013, the GFWC Woman’s Club of Spokane gave $22530.00 in reduced rate rentals to local non-profits and community minded organizations working in areas that coordinated with GFWC Community Service Projects and Signature projects, and assorted religious organizations needing a facility for regular services or large special occasion celebrations.   Another $850 of club member in-kind and cash donations were provided to various local causes from Ronald McDonald House to Hope House. The club also spent $24000.00 maintaining our historic clubhouse so the public can continue to have access to this 100 year old building for all sorts of community needs from Wednesday night contra dance to family weddings.   We are proud of our continuous service to Spokane since 1907.
