Federation Fun Facts: In the early 1900s music and literature were included in GFWC-NC meetings and conventions. In 1910, the first Fine Arts competition featuring music, drama and speaking, was held at convention. At the 1922 Greensboro convention the first prize for Art was $10 in gold. It was awarded to Mrs. Julia Smith; and a 2nd prize of $5.00 was given to Greensboro City Schools.

National Wear Red Day is February 7th

American Heart Association’s signature women’s initiative, Go Red for Women, is a comprehensive platform designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally. 

It’s no longer just about wearing red; it’s no longer just about sharing heart health facts. It’s about all women making a commitment to stand together with Go Red and taking charge of their own heart health as well as the health of those they can’t bear to live without. Making a commitment to your health isn’t something you have to do alone either, so grab a friend or a family member and make a Go Red Healthy Behavior Commitment today. Go Red, Get Fit! 

Be kind to your heart. Learn how to prevent heart disease: move, manage and eat healthy. Raise awareness by wearing red next Friday, February 7th! 

Our Bodies, Ourselves is the bible for women’s health–It has served as a way for women, across ethnic, racial, religious, and geographical boundaries, to start examining their health from a perspective that will bring about change. – Byllye Avery
