History of Our Club

The GFWC Junior Women's Club of Butler is a community service organization.  Founded in 1929, the goals of the original group continue to be carried on today, as club members aim to maintain an organized center for the intellectual & social development and to assist development among women and to assist in community work.  Some or our club's accomplishments include:
 
* Started the concept of the kindergarten program for Butler in the 1950's
* Providing student scholarships since 1955
* Beautifying & renovating Ritts Park on McKean St, for which we received a "Key to the City" from Mayor Richard Schontz
* Sponsoring programs such as the Teen Parenting Needs Closet, Butler Traveling Library, Child Safety Seat Checks & The Heroin Reality Tour
* Gateway Gardens Project - help maintain & upkeep the State Gardens Project at the intersection of Route 8 & 422.

Keep us, O God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.  Let us be done with fault finding and leave off self seeking.  May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face - without self pity and without prejudice.  May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.  Let us take time for all things, make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.  Teach us to put into action our better impulses straight forward and unafraid.  Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences; that in the big things of life we are at one.  And may we strive to touch and to know the great common human heart of us all; and O Lord God, let us forget not to be kind.
