MJWC and Advocate2Vaccinate

GFWC Marlborough Junior Woman’s Club joins the General Federation of Women’s Clubs in their support of the United Nation’s Shot@Life campaign. Shot@Life is a movement to protect children worldwide by providing life-saving vaccines where they are most needed.

World Immunization Week is April 24–April 30 and Shot@Life is asking its partners to participate in Shot@Life’s coast-to-coast challenge for global vaccination. Unite with global vaccine champions across the country to reach three collective goals in three areas: building relationships with your representatives, leveraging the media for advocacy and building community support. Together, we can stand up for children everywhere.

Federation Day – Celebrating 125 Years of GFWC

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs, an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service, celebrates its 125th anniversary on April 24, the organization’s Federation Day.

GFWC Marlborough Junior Woman’s Club (founded in 1964) is a proud member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC).

To mark GFWC’s 125th Anniversary, GFWC Marlborough Junior Woman’s Club received a proclamation from Arthur Vigeant, mayor of Marlborough, MA, in recognition of the often unheralded work clubwomen contribute to our communities.

Delivering 9/11 Thank You Baskets to Local Fire and Police Stations

Every year since 2002, MJWC has chosen to thank our local fire and police for their willingness to serve and protect us. We haven’t missed a year yet and we even had a former member who loved this project join us for deliveries. So, thank you to the fire and police of Marlboro and Hudson for keeping us safe.
