Jaycee Christmas Parties

The Lake Geneva Jaycettes assisted with Holiday Parties for the Jaycee kids over the years. This is the 1971 party. Are any of these faces familiar?

GLWA: Celebrating 55 Years of Service

Geneva Lake Women’s Association is celebrating a milestone in our amazing history. This year marks the 55th anniversary of our incorporation into a service organization. Back then, we were known as the Lake Geneva Jaycettes and were affiliated with the Jaycees. Changes at the national level led us to change our name in 1985 to the Geneva Lake Women’s Association, but our mission remained the same. To help those in our community in need.

As we celebrate this 55th anniversary, we’ll be sharing with you some of our historic photos and documents. This is our 1985 Welcome Packet. It’s a nice summary of our history and lists some of the many projects we were involved in. You’ll notice, we still host many of the same service projects and contribute to many of the same charities.

Thank you to our many supporters and members who have kept GLWA moving forward all these years. We couldn’t have done it without you. Please feel free to share your photos and memories with us. Just email them to us at glwa@glwa.net.

Thank You!

The GLWA Ladies Day Luncheon has come and gone, and it was an amazing success. Ladies Day Luncheon is our biggest fundraising event of the year. The money we raise goes directly to help numerous charitable organizations in Walworth County, and to help us put on events like the Children’s Art Show and Safety Town.

Thanks to the support of the nearly 190 women who attended the luncheon and took part in the raffles and auction, we are able to continue our mission to raise funds, raise hopes and raise spirits.

Thanks, too, to the many donors who helped make it all possible:
