Northwest Federated Woman’s Club and their Senior Center unveiling and blessing of their new 30 passenger bus
Oct. 3, 2014 was a day of celebration for the Northwest Federated Woman’s Club and their Senior Center unveiling and blessing of the new 30 passenger bus! A long awaited goal was recognized.
Finally, the dream came true: reliable, comfortable transportation for Adult Day Care participants. Bishop Clarence Glover and Commissioner Bobby Dubose were instrumental in mobilization of fund raising efforts by individuals and community organizations to secure funds for the purchase. Emphasis was placed on the need to take care of “our own” additional contributions are needed to secure painting of the center’s name and logo on the bust.
Founded seventy-six years ago, the Northwest Federated Woman’s Club focus has been a community beacon with focus on services for the elderly and youth: Former Youth Organization members recall the role of the Woman’s Club in their lives and they feel a sense of obligation to “give back.”
In recognition of services to their grandparents, parents or other relatives through the Senior Center, they give in the spirit of the African ‘tradition, Sankofa (reflect on the past to build a successful future). Their donation of time, talents and resources support the Woman’s Club programs.
Membership is open to interested persons who wish to join the Northwest Federated Woman’s Club and make a difference in community services. Additional information may be received by calling (954) 730-3442 applications may be picked up at 2161 N.W. 19 St., Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
