Lega Femminile

la lega femminile del circolo abruzzese nacque nel 1968 e, proproio come I’ll Circolo Abruzzese, ebbe qualche difficoltà nei suoi primi anni di vita, ma tutti gli ostacoli vennero superati grazie alla determinazione e instancabile passione delle socie. 

Sormontati i primi impedimenti, anche con l’aiuto dei gentiluomini del Circolo Abruzzese, la lega Femminile portò a compimento molteplici progetti, grazie alla dedizione delle socie e alla visione delle presidenti e dei loro direttivi. 

Nonostante I’ll loro avvicendarsi negli anni, le socie della Lega Femminile non smisero mai di pensare e pianificare per I’ll future. 

Nel 2002, di comune accordo con I’ll Circolo Abruzzese e con tutti i socie e le socie, i due gruppi decisero di unire le forze sotto un’unica bandiera, quella del Circolo Abruzzese.
