Woman's Club establishes evening division

Contact: Lori Grygalonis, (757) 229-6008

WILLIAMSBURG, VA, September 24, 2015 - The Woman's Club of Williamsburg-GFWC has voted to create an evening division. This division will be completely integrated into and part of the Club, but will hold monthly meetings in the evening.

At the time of its founding in 1949, the Club held evening meetings, but meetings have been held only during the day for decades.

"In today's world, many women are busy during the day with family and work obligations. It is time for The Woman's Club of Williamsburg to change with the times and go back to offering evening meetings for these women," explains Club President Lori Grygalonis. "I hope that this move will open membership up to those that previously were not able to participate. We have so many wonderful activities that I know the women of Williamsburg will be interested in."

The first meeting of The Woman's Club of Williamsburg-GFWC Evening Division will be held at 6:00 p.m., October 28, in the Jamestown conference room of the Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center, 100 Sentara Circle.

Meetings of the Evening Division will mirror the meetings held during the day. Members of the club will be able to attend either the day or evening meetings.

The nonprofit Woman's Club of Williamsburg-GFWC is a group of women dedicated to local community improvements by enhancing the lives of others through the development and participation in a variety of volunteer projects and services. The Club is affiliated with the General Federation of Women's Clubs.

The Club awards a scholarship annually to one high school senior from each local high school and hosts fund-raising events to fund these scholarships and in support of community organizations such as FISH, Avalon, Heritage Humane Society and many more.
