Welcome from the Board

It’s still celebration time for us, honoring AWC’s 90th birthday, and adding on to 90 years of living our motto of “fun, friendship and philanthropy”.

Celebrate with us, have fun and do good by taking part in AWC events. We offer you a full slate of activities; check out the calendar and choose those that interest you most. If you’re a Facebook user, stay tuned to the AWC Denmark Coffeeshop, our private group, for new activities and updated information.

AWC Denmark and our mother organization, FAWCO, are communities of love and caring, communities of people committed to improving our local and international environments. Sign up for the AWC Denmark Coffeeshop or FAWCO Region 2 Facebook groups, if you have not already done so; they immediately link you to a support network. If you need help with that – or have questions or suggestions about any event or activity – contact AWC’s FAWCO Rep, Jonelle Lemcke (jonelle@lemcke.dk) or any other member of the AWC Denmark Board, especially the President, Mary Stewart Burgher,  emessbe@yahoo.com).

AWC Denmark donations to Target recognized

AWC Denmark has already contributed substantially to FAWCO’s Target Project, Awesome Blossoms. Take a look at the slideshow introducing Awesome Blossoms and illustrating the work it will do; FAWCO clubs aim to raise $140,000 for it by early 2025. The Flower Trellis (click on this link and scroll down to see it) measures our progress as we move towards our goal.
The AWC Denmark Board was delighted to be informed recently that sales of spring and holiday earrings in 2022 and 2023 (so far!) have raised a total of $1,345 for Awesome Blossoms. Our club proudly holds a place on the club donor wall: as a Tulip Donor.
