Riverbank News - - NEWS - By RIC McGIN­NIS

River­bank’s Fed­er­ated Women’s Club met re­cently to close out their year and name of­fi­cers for the com­ing year.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion will meet again in the fall af­ter tak­ing the sum­mer off.

The lo­cal unit is af­fil­i­ated with the Cal­i­for­nia Fed­er­a­tion of Women’s Clubs, CFWC, and, through it, the Gen­eral Fed­er­a­tion of Women’s Clubs. It is an in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to com­mu­nity im­prove­ment by en­hanc­ing the lives of oth­ers through vol­un­teer ser­vice.

The clubs of the CFWC are lo­cated through­out the state with the pri­mary pur­pose of car­ry­ing out char­i­ta­ble ser­vice pro­grams, pro­vid­ing lead­er­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties, and en­rich­ing the lives of mem­bers through per­sonal growth.

The River­bank Fed­er­ated Women’s Club is de­voted to im­prov­ing the qual­ity of life in River­bank, ac­cord­ing to out­go­ing pres­i­dent Marie Shu­bin.

“Mem­bers can be found par­tic­i­pat­ing in com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties,” she noted.

All of the prof­its from the club’s fund rais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties are rein­vested in the com­mu­nity, ac­cord­ing to Shu­bin. Many River­bank stu­dents have ben­e­fited from their Glenda Alpers schol­ar­ship pro­gram and spon­sor­ships to Scout camps, robotics competitions and Tech Trek.

The RFWC meets the third Tues­day of each month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the River­bank Scout Hall at 3017 High St. New mem­bers 18 and over are wel­come to at­tend. This club was founded in 1966 and is a State and Na­tional Club. Contact Marilyn McRitchie at 209-869-1760 for more in­for­ma­tion.
