Welcome to the GFWC Illinois

Antioch Woman’s Club

The mission of the GFWC Illinois Antioch Woman’s Club is to provide intellectual growth and unity of effort toward civic improvement – a philanthropic organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.

We are a fun, dynamic and energetic group of women who are dedicated to making a difference in our world and our community. The Antioch Woman’s Club (AWC) works to promote education, preserve natural resources and encourage healthy lifestyles.

Our work has made a positive impact with the elderly and people with disabilities, has been a voice for issues relating to women, children and families and has supported participation in the arts.   We encourage you to contact us to learn more about how you can get involved.

Dear Ladies,

 It is with great sadness, that the AWC board has voted unanimously to cancel our December Holiday Event. If you have already sent in your luncheon check, it will be returned.

The raffle WILL continue, so please buy and/or sell your tickets and return them to Judy Reinhold by December 1. We will plan on having the drawing on December 7. It is more important than ever to sell these tickets so that we can make our scholarship budget.

Information on A Safe Place and Open Arms Missions donations will be announced later.

I, personally, have tried to stay  positive and continue the traditions of the club, but too much uncertainty has eroded my positivity in trying to conduct business as usual.

My wish for all of you is to stay safe and hope for a better future.

God bless and enjoy the holidays as much as possible.


Jean Johnson

“Volunteers are not paid—not because they are worthless,

but because they are priceless.”

Membership in the AWC creates opportunities to socialize while working with others who represent a wide variety of interests. This makes serving our community and being part of a larger organization a worthwhile effort that provides many lasting memories and gratification.

We would love to have you learn more about AWC and to join our organization.

Holiday Luncheon Reservation Information
Thurs. Dec 10
Antioch VFW
75 North Avenue, Antioch, IL 60002
11: 00 – Social
12:00 – Lunch

Because of the pandemic the traditional luncheon will be an individually “boxed” hot meal so that no food will be needed to be served or touched by any individual. It will be catered by Chef Paul Catering – Gurnee. Several of us have experienced the meals which are hot and delicious.
xxxx $22 for either choice made payable to AWC – with your choice in the memo xxxx
Your meal choices are:

  1. Beef Bourguignon – traditional beef roasted with pearl onions, bacon,mushrooms and red wine.
  2. Chicken Marsala – lightly floured and sauteed chicken breast with a mushroom Marsala wine sauce.

Both of the above will be served with rolls, butter and salad (greens with cheese, dried cherries,walnuts and a creamy honey mustard dressing), mashed potatoes and candied carrots.
All utensils are wrapped for individual use. It is a very unique and safe way for us to have our event.

Please return your check to Karen Wehrheim (25014 w. Nicklaus Way, Antioch) by December 1 or bring your check to the November meeting.

We hope that many of you will attend: masks will be worn and there is plenty of room for safe distancing at the VFW!!

Please note: there will be NO silent auction. We will offer a large raffle instead.
