Let’s hear it for the club

Courtesy photo Courtesy photo GFWC Manistique Women’s Club was recently awarded “Club of the Year, Category III”, for the state of Michigan at the GFWC annual convention held in Gladstone at the Terrace Bay Hotel. Above, pictured third from the left, is Brenda Fleck, club president, receiving the award. GFWC also awards women for being active in their clubs and state activities. This year, Shirley Leitgeb was awarded the distinction of being Ms. Federation for all her work in the club. Leitgeb has held many offices in the local club, has served as chair or helped with several of the committees, and writes reports each January. Club members note her willingness to assist with a project. Leitgeb was honored during the recent banquet. Anyone wishing to join the local GFWC club may contact Membership Chair Susan Hattas-Krumrey at (906) 235-9843. The next event will be at Folkfest in July, where members will sell pie slices and slightly used jewelry for “Operation Smile”. They will also have items to show their pride in the local police department, namely, “Back Our Blue: Schoolcraft County” items. The next regular meeting will be held Sept. 2 at the Comfort Inn.
