The club began its work in the community with a campaign for a public library. The effort came to fruition and the library was built on property owned by member Augusta Spies. Since that first effort, the club has worked through its Community Service Program Committees to enrich and enhance our community. We provide scholarships, sponsor education projects, beautify our city, honor our veterans, help agencies fight crime with program assistance, staff projects for and donate to charities, and promote the arts.

GFWC Menominee has been working with the curator at the Menominee Heritage Museum to develop a display about the history of our club and the passage of the 19th Amendment. The display will feature replica sashes created by club members, Jinny Ruleau and Kathy Warner. It was slated to open in July 2020, however it has been postponed due to Covid-19.
