Our Club has evolved as our City has evolved, with service projects changing from year to year, and as the needs of our community require a commitment of the organizations to step forward.   The activities listed to the right are just a sampling of our involvement in the community over the years.  They represent a group of women caring for our children, women and our community, working as a team and completing amazing feats.

 As an international organization our efforts extend beyond our borders, and we have a global reach with an impact on women’s legislation, making a difference for women in need in emerging countries, and helping in crises situations. We share in the wisdom of women located in 120 countries collectively making a difference in the lives of women and children.
