On May 13, 1971, Clearwater Community Woman's Club was formed with a charter membership of 61 women, becoming federated on September 21, 1971.  These 61 dynamic women dedicated themselves to serving the community and educating themselves and others about the important issues of the day.

Through the years CCWC has participated in many volunteer projects, educational programs and fundraisers, which provide needed support and funds for various community projects.  Notable among these endeavors are:

  • Delivering Meals on Wheels
  • Volunteering at area libraries and schools
  • Raising thousands of dollars for the Clearwater Library System and the Clearwater Library Foundation with the club's annual November fundraiser, "An Evening with the Author"

 Since 1972, CCWC has presented the "Daisy Award" to recognize and honor a worthy non-profit organization that serves the Clearwater Community.  Presentation of this prestigious award brings to its recipient public recognition and financial aid.  A sampling of the organizations that have been honored in recent years are:

  • Religious Community Services
  • Hospice of the Florida Suncoast
  • Clearwater Marine Aquarium
  • Pinellas Habitat for Humanity
  • Lighthouse of Pinellas (formally the Watson Center)
  • Women on the Way Challenge Center

The members of the CCWC are proud to have Judy Lutz, the 2002-2004 GFWC International President, as a friend and member since 1975.  As part of her GFWC presidency, Judy traveled throughout America and the world, spreading the message of GFWC.  Her motto was "The future belongs to those who shape it with friendship, humility and volunteer service."
