“Unity in Diversity” Logo

“Unity in Diversity”  What your logo says

The Federation’s proud tradition of connecting with one another began in 1868 with founder Jane Cunningham Croly, a professional journalist from New York City.  In 1889, the official motto became “Unity in Diversity” by Sorosis President, Ella Dietz Clymer at a meeting of 61 clubs.  In 1892, a pin with the rising sun was chosen to identify each member.  In 1920, International Prsident, Alice Ames Winter updated the member to what it is today.  the logo illustrates the crusader’s shield, signifying enlightenment, emerging from the darkened world, represented by a black center,.  The band encircling the center signifies eternity: a fully risen sun on a field of blue symbolizes purity.  For constancy, bluesurrounds the letter GFWC and the motto “Unity in Diversity”

Nevis Women’s Club serves Violence Awareness Dinner

In October, the Nevis Women’s Club prepared a ‘comfort’ dinner of meat loaf (they made 50 individual loaves!), mashed tatoes, corn, coleslaw and rolls to about 200 people.  This was the only fundraiser for the  Domestic Violence Center in Park  Rapids.  Proceeds of $2900 will help the center.

Thank You Tuesday

Leadership Ideas from Yvonne Schilplin,  Leadership Chairman

GFWC International President Mary Ellen Brock recommends that we participate in “Thank You Tuesday” by writing in a journal or by sending a note on a job well done.  Maybe one of your members took the initative to lead a group project.  She would appreciate a Thank you note from you.  Maybe a group in town has given help or guidance to your club.  A “Thank You Tuesday” note would be great! Maybe a member gave you a ride to a meeting or eventm, or maybe a mlember made a great dessert, or maybe a member gave an informative presentation, send a “Thank You Tuesday” note.

“Thank You Tuesday” correspondence can be sent to members of your family, neighbors, friends, etc.  We have all received Thank You notes and know how those notes are the most heartfelt ways of expressing gratitude.  

Write a “Thank You Tuesday” note or two each Tuesday and know that you are spreading warm, juzzy feelings to the  recipients of your notes.
