Faces of the GFWC/KFWC Pikeville Woman’s Club

Friends Drift Inn Farm – Real Life

One of the highlights of Kentucky Derby Week is always the GFWC/KFWC Spring Fashion Show and luncheon. Just because we are 240 miles from Louisville, does not mean we Appalachian women do not love our Kentucky Derby….and the hats that go with them.

Here’s a few snapshots from the Women’s Club Event. Hope you enjoy!
