A Look Back
In March of 2001, five women, Kathie Cardon, Gisela Ferrell, Jackie McCann, Barbara Szymanski, and Mary Lee Thompson met to establish a social organization for the women of Magnolia Point. Over the years this group of five has grown to over 225 women and has become an organization that not only enjoys a rich social life but also volunteers our services in the local community and sponsors many fundraising events in support of our multiple charities.

We provide interesting monthly speakers, a book club, day trips and numerous opportunities for our members to use their talents by serving on one of our volunteer committees. Some of the social activities and programs we have had in the past include:
- A tour of the Christmas Spectacular at the Stetson Mansion
- Arts & Crafts Fairs
- Luminary Night events
- Holiday Home Tour
- Musical groups
- Guest speakers presenting the history of GCS, Exploritus (formerly Elder Hostel), growing herbs, holiday decorating, gardening, travel, photography, health, and personal care
- Participation in Reinhold Foundation leadership seminars
Our Membership team personally welcomes each new resident to Magnolia Point and shares community information with them. The women are provided with information regarding the Women’s Club and invited to attend our meetings.
Each year members accrue many volunteer hours on various projects, conducting food drives for the Food Pantry, collecting donations for the Safe Animal Shelter, mentoring children, walking for breast cancer and diabetes. Through our Christmas Luminary Night event, the sale of directory ads and other fund-raising activities we have over the years contributed to the following causes:
|Scholarships for Clay High School Senior Girls Blessings in a Backpack
(now Maggie's Meals)
Camp I Am Special
Clay High School Scholarships
Clay County Literacy Coalition
All the Green Cove Springs Schools
The Clay County Rescue Mission
