A Message from Barbara Briley Beard
CFWC President 2022-2024
Dear Members and Friends,
The “Aloha Administration” has begun and we are surfing in all directions! Thank you for the honor of being your CFWC State President. I am happy to serve as your President and hope you are engaged in equally fun and exciting roles in your clubs and districts. The CFWC Executive Board includes more than 40 appointed chairmen serving in a wide variety of volunteer positions. I’m very proud of how these members handle the responsibilities and meet the challenges of their roles.
CFWC has 9,000+ members in 244 clubs, making up 18 Districts. CFWC has recently added several new clubs, and also a Juniorette Club known as GFWC Hope. We’re proud of this young high school group of Federated members who are making a difference in their community! It takes each and every club and each and every member to make our projects happen with grace and style as we are Blessed, Bright & Bold.
As GFWC/CFWC members, we take care of business when asked and help where we are needed. Our projects might include putting ‘buddy benches’ in parks and schools, organizing fundraiser fashion shows or teas, or donating our valuable time and hard-earned monies toward community service programs.
The Advocates for Children service program is my President’s Project for 2022-2024. The projects are diverse and the need is urgent! To list just a few: Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA); Girls on the Run; March of Dimes; the National Foster Parent Association; Operation Smile; St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital; Threads of Love; fighting against child abuse; youth suicide prevention….there’s so much more! I’m certain each CFWC club can find a project that inspires a passion to act during the coming year.
Thank you for your continued hard work, caring and sharing. The annual club reports demonstrate the many thousands of hours, dollars and in-kind donations you and your clubs donate toward countless projects throughout California and around the world. By working together and being kind, we will inspire our members to encourage their family and friends to join us in Federation. We show by our actions that we truly make a difference and so can they!
