WOMAN'S CLUB MEMBERSHIP
Together, we assist hundreds in our area from the elderly to the young, providing scholarship monies for the next generation of college freshmen.
And we do it all while building friendships and infusing fun and culture in the organization. We host game nights, concerts and craft sales, as well as blood drives and book club meetings. Every year, the Woman's Club is fortunate to host celebrity speakers such as Hilary and Chelsea Clinton. Other recent headliners include Sean Penn who discussed a work of fiction while actress Carmen Diaz entertained a large audience with an insightful talk about healthy living.
