GFWC Gainesville Phoenix Woman’s Club celebrates The Star Spangled Banner

September 13, 2014, marks the 200th anniversary of the writing of our national anthem.  Francis Scott Key penned the poem that would later become our national anthem after a tough battle during the war of 1812.  Phoenix celebrated and invited the community to join in singing the national anthem.  Johnson High School Band and Gainesville High School’s Crimson Chorus joined the occasion.

Each club woman decorates a table to fill with her friends so each table has it’s own theme and unique decorations.  Seeing the creative ideas is a fun part of this annual event.

Luncheon was a success!

Saturday, August 10, 2013 was the 5th annual For Her Glory Luncheon.  Over 100 women came together to celebrate the life of a friend and support her vision of helping women who are going through cancer maintain their dignity.  Our speaker, Mark Ballard, made us laugh until we cried, telling stories about “Granny.”  Afterward, he allowed us to auction the wreath he made to contribute to our charity.  I declare the luncheon a success!
