Letter from the President

Dear UKWC Members and Friends:

On behalf of the University of Kentucky Woman’s Club, it is my distinct pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to all women! This is OUR club – a club rich with history and traditions of over a century of fun, friendship and philanthropy. And this is YOUR club – one where you can join women of all ages, connecting with others from diverse backgrounds and those with unique interests and talents, as we achieve a common purpose in support of women who are obtaining their degrees from the University of Kentucky. 

All women are invited to join the UK Woman’s Club -- membership is not exclusive to those with ties to the University of Kentucky. Everyone is encouraged to become an active member! Take advantage of some of the fun social groups, support nontraditional UK students by volunteering with committees at our philanthropy events to raise funds for scholarships, and trust that in doing so, you will meet other women, those both like and very different from yourself, with whom you will build lifelong friendships.  

The UK Woman’s Club offers a meaningful array of activities, for members, and opportunities to change lives through our significant scholarship program. Take time this fall to enjoy a new Interest Group, take a tour with Let’s Go, join a committee or work with other volunteers on a special event. I encourage you to take full advantage of all the University of Kentucky Woman’s Club has to offer, and make the most of your membership!

As a special request, I am asking that each member invite a friend, family member or colleague to join us at an event, an Interest Group meeting, or a luncheon. You can bring others as guests, so they get to know us and our mission, without having to join. If they like our Club, they can then become members. Remembe, the number one reason why potential members do not join is because no one invited them. Let’s offer a welcoming invitation!

Hoping to see you and your friends at our Holiday Luncheon at Spindletop and the At Home Craft Holiday Sale in December.

Serving as your president is truly an honor, and I remain honored and humbled to be working with an amazing and inspiring Board, and our many leadership volunteers, to continue the wonderful traditions that make the University of Kentucky Woman's Club uniquely rewarding for all members.

Again, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the UK Woman’s Club!

Remona Edenfield

President, 2017-2018
