Events Past


Habitat For Humanity's Women Build

Members helped beautify and ready a home being built for one of our members!  It was a particularly satisfying project knowing it benefitted one of our own sisters!

A second group of members helped build a home for a member of our community as well!  Giving back is what this Club is all about!

Breakfast With A Lifesaver

FPWC's signature monthly event, Breakfast with a Lifesaver, continues to be a hit.  Celebrating our local firefighters is a honor and we are proud to do this every month on the 3rd Wednesday morning.  

Networking begins at 7:30 am with the program starting promptly at 8 am.  Come join us!   The cost is $15 pp and includes a wonderful breakfast. 

Thank you to our sponsor (and member) IThink Financial and Elisha Gohl!

Breakfast With The Easter Bunny

Community daycares were invited to have a pancake breakfast and egg hunt at the Club on March 27th.

We had around 30 children squealing with delight and filled their bellies with a yummy pancake meal made by our members and left with plenty of Easter treats to keep them going for awhile!

Another Successful Paint & Sip

The Paint & Sip committee put on a fantastic night full of good food and fun!  And, the event raised over $550 for the Club's building fund.

If you missed it, don't worry.  We scheduled another one for mid-November.  Don't miss it!

FPWC Has a "Little Library"!

Parliamentarian Carolyn Wilkins and her husband built, placed and registered a "Little Library" for the Club.  This is a great program helping to promote reading and literacy by providing a place for people to pick up and drop off books.

Each library is registered nationally so people can easily find a library near them.

Thank you Carolyn!  This is a great addition to the Club.
