Who We Are:

Welcome to the TellicoLife home page of GFWC Tellico Village.  We may be known around Tellico Village as “The Women’s Club” but we are a chapter of the Greater Federation of Women’s Clubs.  The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) is an international women's organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.

Over the past 21 years GFWC Tellico Village has donated more than $250,000 to our community

2017 Home Tour - November 12, 2017 

The 22nd Annual Tellico Village Charity Home Tour, “Home is Where the Heart Is”,  will be held on Sunday, November 12, 2017.

There are five distinctly unique homes being offered in this year's tour - three lake homes (one over 6,000 sq. ft.), a downsized home approximately 2,000 sq. ft. and a town home.  We will view homes in Tommotley, Tanasi and Toqua neighborhoods.  

New to the home tour reception this year is a sponsor "Meet and Greet" which will give those touring the homes a chance to meet our sponsors.  Also at the reception will be a silent auction with the opportunity to bid on merchandise from local businesses.
