Edina Federated Women’s Club has Power in Numbers

A glance at how a local group has grown.

When I first met with Susan Smith of Edina Federated Women’s Club, I was armed with a little background information on the group, and with a bit of information on what they had accomplished since that rather plucky gal, Jane Cunningham Croly, gathered a group of women together back in 1890. But after I spent an hour with Smith at a local coffee shop, I was impressed…and inspired.

Boy, I thought to myself, these women really prove the old adage that there is power in numbers. And they show just how powerful and productive women really are.

In an effort to continue the efforts of its founder, Edina Federated Women’s Club is hosting its 11th Annual Feds Fest at the Westin Edina Galleria Hotel on January 14, 2012. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Jean Hedberg at hedbergj@msn.com.
