Awards & Recognition

2013: Special thanks to Danalyn Cahill for her amazing artistic contributions. Since 1932, our official club flower has been the red hibiscus. Danalyn recreated a long-lost, hand-drawn image and made it possible for us to step into 2013 with a vibrant, fresh, and classic new logo. Many hours of work were donated to create the beautiful hibiscus you see on this website — and anywhere else you see the GFWC Naples Woman’s Club. Thank you, Danalyn! Your talent as a graphic designer, professionalism, and generosity are truly a gift.
