Call to GFWC-OK State Convention

Posted by

Some gifts are large

Some gifts are small

But the greatest gift of all

Comes from the HEART

Volunteering is a gift of the heart.

State GFWC-OK President, Joan Maddox extends a very special invitation to your State Convention in Oklahoma City, at the Holiday Inn Airport, 4401 SW 15th Street on April 26 & 27. Room rate is $95 per night, plus tax. This includes two breakfast tickets (per double room) for anything on the menu up to $10. You are responsible for anything over $10 plus the tip.

You won’t want to miss this convention. Our speakers:

  • Marian St. Clair, GFWC President-Elect, will be our special guest. A club woman since 1989, Marian’s unique talents and skills coupled with integrity, compassion and tenacity, make her a dedicated and dynamic leader.
  • Cindy Seller-Roach with Heifer International will speak to us about a special GFWC program, the School for Milk for children in Tanzania.
  • Sean Kouplen is Oklahoma’s 10th Secretary of Commerce and Workforce Development, the Chairman of Regent Bank and a small business investor. In his role of Secretary of Commerce, Kouplen oversees the economic development for the state.
  • Friday evening will be a special treat with a 1920’s Half Moon Speakeasy, dinner theater and murder mystery. Flapper attire is highly recommended. You may be called to action to identify the killer of a flapper who is found shot to death in the back alley. This fun evening program is sure to keep us entertained.
  • Done in a day Project. Ladies clean out your closets and bring your slightly used shoes to convention. This is part of our Grand Initiatives of the 2018-2020 Administration: Soles 4 Souls. Shoes can be any type, boots, sandals, athletic, new or old. Children and adult shoes are all accepted. Our goal is for 1,000 pairs!
