SPECIAL EVENT:
MARDI GRAS – HOLIDAY INN FSK- FREDERICK, MD

MARCH 1, 2014 – 7:00 P.M. www.fwcinc.org for more information

Steiner House

The club meets at historic Steiner House, a Frederick City landmark built in 1807 and purchased by FWCC in 1962. We have preserved and maintained this historic gem as close to its original condition as possible and open it to museum tours and other events. Steiner House reflects the club’s dedication to preservation in our community.

We are proudly participating in This Place Matters, a campaign sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, to focus on Steiner House and other historic landmarks in communities across the county.


New Look For Us

Thanks to the work of some of our members, our club has an elegant logo featuring the beautiful front door of historic Steiner House and proclaiming “A Century of Serving Frederick.” This summer we also launched a website to let our community and our partners know more about all our members do at the local, state, and national level of GFWC. A new member of our club designed the logo and the website banner. Another FWCC member, with technical help from her son, created the website and keeps it up-to-date. We invite everyone to take a look at www.fwccinc.org.


Let The Good Times Roll!

The Frederick Woman's Civic Club will host its 52nd Annual Mardi Gras Ball on Feb. 9, 2012, at the FSK Holiday Inn and Conference Center in Frederick. This year's theme is “Let the Good Times Roll” and we promise they will! Costumes are encouraged. Black Tie, Business Attire or Military Uniform for men and semi-formal attire for women is the other suggested dress.

We hold the Mardi Gras Ball annually to help raise money for ongoing support of community efforts. Each year we designate a local community charity to receive recognition and funding
from the Ball. This year Hospice of Frederick County is the designated charity. Funds raised also support FWCC Community Service Programs, help preserve and maintain historic Steiner House and provide college scholarships to Frederick County students.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the evening begins at 7:30 p.m. with the presentation of the Mardi Gras Kings, Queen and Princesses. After the presentation, the Ball begins in the Main Ballroom where Unique Dreams will perform music to suit every taste. New this year, several Frederick restaurants will offer Tastes of their favorite dishes, with a cash bar available.

More information coming soon on how to purchase tickets online, the silent auction, and fantastic raffle prizes. You can learn more by visiting our website, www.fwccinc.org, and clicking on the Mardi Gras page.

For further information and details please contact Mardi Gras Ball Chairman Rosemary Glenn at mdrosieg@comcast.net.
