Famèe Furlane Women’s Auxiliary (“FFWA”) is one of
the newer groups under the umbrella of the Famèe Furlane.
This group is the result of an idea Elda Maraldo presented to the
Famèe Furlane Board in the fall of 2005. Formally approved
and Board sanctioned, this small but active group offers it's
support to the Famèe while having fun with activities that
reinforce our Furlan traditions and maintain culture. At the
same time, the group strives to stretch it’s horizons with guest
speakers, regular book reviews, informative presentations and
hands on workshops. FFWA volunteers offer assistance to the
community, particularly at the Villa Leonard Gambin. Members
fundraise through various excursions with funds generated used in
support of the Famèe Furlane and its campus.
This group proudly presented the Famèe Furlane with its
first ever “gonfalone” (banner), donated a much needed
piece of exercise equipment to the VLG and has spearheaded the
purchase of varied and sundry decorative items for the Famèe.
Its celebration of International Women’s Day is quickly joining
the ranks of an annual signature event at the Club.
Do you have a special talent which you wish to share with the
consider joining it as the members are always open to new ideas
and ready to welcome like minded individuals.
