Fuquay-Varina
Junior Woman's Club
Welcome to the Fuquay-Varina Junior Woman's Club!
We are.... a non-profit organization of women who share a common desire to serve the community while building lasting friendships.

We are.... an organization whose members are dedicated to community improvement through volunteer service.

We are... part of the oldest volunteer organizations, The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC).

Our next Membership Meeting will be August 29, 2016 at the Woman's Club House, 602 N. Ennis Street.
Please contact us if you would like to join us.

History of Our Club

The GFWC-FV Junior Woman's Club was chartered in July 1987 with 25+ members. The first project was the "Beautiful Baby Contest" at the Two Flags Over Fuquay-Varina Celebration. More than $700 was raised and donated to the March of Dimes. Today, there are 16 members, and the major fund raising event is the Annual Charity Ball held in November. The club completes many projects during the year with the club's six programs providing focus. Check out our Events and Projects page to see what we have been up to this year.

What's Happening?

In July 2015, our Club was honored to donate a brand, new waterproof wheelchair to be used at the new Fuquay-Varina Splash Pad. This wheelchair will be available at no charge to anyone who needs it. You may check it out at the Community Center, also located at South Park with the Splash Pad. 



In June, the FVJWC donated seven Apple TVs to Fuquay-Varina Elementary School in support of our state special project on STEM Education. FVES has a goal of every classroom having an Apple TV, which among other things, allows the teacher to project activities from students' iPads on the screen. This allows the entire class to be involved, even if they don't all have iPads. FVES has a Science, Math & Engineering Class taught by Mrs. Semple. Thanks to Mrs. Semple & Principal Moore for meeting with us and show us more about learning and technology.  



In March, several club members participated in the Fuquay-Varina "Big Sweep" where volunteers picked up trash along the roads near Carroll  Howard Johnson Park, in addition to cleaning up the trails and streams inside the Park.
