GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club members showed up wielding mops, brooms, hoses and cleaning supplies to assist the Friends of Old Lutz School with a heavy-duty spring cleaning. The club women felt it was time to give back for the privilege of use of this historic building and grounds for their annual Flea Market which was recently concluded. These gals know how to roll up their sleeves and get the job done.
A team of GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club members, under the direction of Public Affairs Chair Donna Losch, regularly volunteer at the “Support the Troops” warehouse facility in Wesley Chapel.
The ladies work assembly-line style to fill boxes of donated personal items, snacks and other goodies requested by our servicemen and women overseas. In addition, Ms. Losch, on behalf of the Woman’s Club presented the organization with a donation check of $200 toward postage required to mail these boxes to our troops.
GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club members, under the direction of Conservation Chair Allie Peterman and with the help of two husbands, Joel Jackson and Brian Peterman, got together for a special project to build bluebird houses in order to attract these delicate little native birds back to our area.
Pesticides and predators have seriously decimated their numbers so the club women are on a mission to help bring back this population
GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club enjoyed a riotous Haute Couture AND Low Couture Flea Market Fashion Show leading to their upcoming Annual Flea Market at the Old Lutz School on Fri. / Sat. March 7 & 8.
All fashions being showcased were pulled from donated items available in their Chic Boutique, ranging from elegant and sophisticated to zany. Two members won most outrageous honors for wearing a single pair of pants and a shirt. The ladies have spent the past 6 weeks accumulating and preparing a great deal of donated treasures including antiques, collectibles, clothing, books, tools, sports, furniture, kids’ items, baby equipment, décor and seasonal.
Mark your calendars and come out to find your treasure. All proceeds will benefit local charities and organizations as well as scholarships.
