GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club recognized Heart Month by dressing in red for each of their meetings during the month of February. Cardiac health awareness is stressed by the Woman’s Club throughout the year by distributing heart health info and inviting related guest speakers.
GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club members recently worked on several craft projects simultaneously. Personalized Valentines, candy treats and colorful floral table decorations were handmade and delivered to the Lutz Senior Center, J. A. Haley VA Hospital & Lopez VA Nursing Home in Land O’Lakes. This long-serving community service organization supports numerous local non-profits, schools, libraries, boy & girl scouts.
GFWC LUTZ-LAND O’LAKES WOMAN’S CLUB President Karin D’Amico was very busy volunteering during her recent GFWC Florida Caribbean Cruise. Ms. D’Amico toured Casa Aberque de Martina in the Dominican Republic and Hogar Rafaela Ybarra Girls’ Shelter in San Juan, Pueto Rico. She brought with her suitcases and backpacks filled with school supplies and other fun items donated by club members to distribute to the needy girls in both facilities. Needless to say, Ms. D’Amico was met by the little girls who showed with big smiles and open arms how very grateful they were for the generosity of the Woman’s Club gifts.

Funds are raised each year toward the purchase of these very expensive puppies to be trained over a 2 year period as hard-working assistance dogs for the disabled. The Woman’s Club has supported Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) for a number of years and considers it a most worthy charity.
