What is the GFWC Lamoille Women's Club (LWC)?
The Lamoille Women's Club is a woman's organization, located in Lamoille, Nevada at the base of the beautiful Ruby Mountains, that welcomes any member who lives in Elko County. The Club meets the first Wednesday of every month from September through June. Exceptions are the months of January and September when meetings are held on the second Wednesday. Socials, committee meetings supporting services in need, and weekly sewing gatherings are also held in their clubhouse at 795 Clubhouse Lane.
The GFWC Lamoille Women's Club is a non-profit organization that raises funds to support their clubhouse in Lamoille; to provide assistance to BrightPath Adult Enrichment Center, Friends in Service Helping (FISH), the Ruby Mountain Resource Center, and Elko's Harbor House; to award scholarships to Spring Creek and Elko High School seniors as well as Great Basin College students; to promote the Yellow Dot Program, a safety program which is the Club's 2012-2014 community improvement project; and several other endeavors. The Club has ongoing community service projects that all members support.
In order to raise funds, the GFWC Lamoille Women's Club holds the Annual Lamoille Country Fair on the last Sunday in June each year, a 2-day Fall Craft Festival in mid-November at Spring Creek High School, and a Spring "Hot Bowls" event. They also participate in the Lamoille Harvest Festival in October holding a Bake Sale and Raffle.
