Woman’s Club of Cullom was organized in September 1954.  The Saunemin Woman’s Club as our sponsor. Our first president was Grace Ginter (1954-1956) and at that time there were 61 members.  We had a big 50th Anniversary celebration in November 2004 with State President Martha Bein as our guest.   We celebrated our 60th Anniversary in 2014 with a tea and a slide show presentation of pictures over the past years plus a display of scrap books thru the years.  

We are a small club today with 18 members but very very active in our community.  We have one member who celebrated her 101st birthday in August 2017.  

A dream came true in 2016 with the help of Organizations and individuals we purchased 23 American Flags which line Rt 116 thru town five (5) times a year.  In 2017 again the community came together and another 25 flags were purchased. Now 48 flags line Rt. 116  five (5) times a year.  

We decorate the “Welcome to Cullom” sign at each end of town on the highway with different themes about 5-6 times a year.

We use the Hot Air Balloon as our logo since Cullom is known for holding the record for the longest Hot Air Balloon ascensions at their Annual Cullom Homecoming celebration and Junior Fair in August.   We adopted “GFWC IL” in our name in 2005.
