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,
Over the past few weeks many decisions and changes had to be made-some of these decisions have affected the bylaws, but we have no choice at this time.


2. The September general meeting will be a regular meeting at the church.
PLEASE NOTE: we will not need a hostess committee for October, thus-will those who signed up for October, please Hostess in September. Let Sharen Starck know your decision. Thank you in advance.

3. Our summer fund-raisers have been cancelled.   We have arranged with TerriLynn Nuts and Candies to hold a virtual fundraiser….see details at bottom of this page.


Hopefully, we will learn some lessons from this difficult time that will make a more peaceful world.

Mathew 7,v.1-2 Do not judge or you, too, will be judged and MY favorite: Mark 12, v.31-Love your neighbor as yourself.
Please pray for those who need it and stay safe yourself.
Love and God bless,
Jean Johnson, President

but because they are priceless.”
