[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

Girl's Friendly Society Minute Book, 1992-73-0, is a soft-covered bound book in which were written the minutes of the Girl's Friendly Society of St. Michael's Church in Litchfield.  The minutes are for the years 1922 to 1924 and record meetings, reports on holiday parties and other events alone and with other Girl's Friendly Society groups in Litchfield County.  One of the secretaries of the society was the donor, Florence Mayer Hunt.

The Girls' Friendly Society (also known by their program name GFS Platform, or just GFS) is a philanthropic society that empowers girls and young women, encouraging them to develop their full potential through programs that provide training, confidence building, and other educational opportunities. Established by a group of Anglicans in England in 1875[1] to address, through Christian values, the problems of working-class out-of-wedlock pregnancies,[2] as well as other problems of working class girls, it soon grew into a support organization for unmarried girls and young women who wished to better themselves.
