Our Very Own, Tracy Kubricky
Nominated For Prestigious National GFWC Award

The RI affiliate of GFWC has nominated local clubwoman Tracy Kubricky for the GFWC’s Jennie June Award, the national organization’s highest honor and the only one that recognizes individual members for personal excellence. The national winner will be named at the GFWC’s national convention scheduled for June 2022. Tracy has been a member of WCSC since 2014. From the start, she has engaged in numerous hands-on volunteer projects and assumed a variety of leadership roles. Currently, she serves as Operations Team Leader, a job that ensures the smooth functioning of club activities though such measures as reviewing and updating policies and procedures.

The WCSC celebrated National Library Week by delivering one hundred books purchased by club members and the public to local libraries. The project, GFWC Loves Libraries, One Book at a Time, began in February during National Library Lovers Month. We are proud to continue the General Federation of Women's Clubs' (GFWC) long tradition of supporting local libraries.
