Biographical or historical data
The Virginia Federation of Women’s Clubs was founded in 1907 in Lynchburg, Virginia, as a state branch of the national organization, the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (established in New York in 1892). The organization consisted of literary, sewing, and social clubs that were founded primarily as a means for self-education and development for women. Gradually, the emphasis of most local clubs changed to community service and improvement. The Blue Ridge District is one of the now eight (as of 2008) districts comprising the Virginia Federation of Women's Clubs.
