In the years since its inception, in 1896, the Woman's Club of Woodbury was at the forefront of important civic improvement and community service projects. From a variety of fund raising activities the club has contributed thousands of dollars to cultural, educational, health, and charitable organizations.

The Annual Holiday House Tour is the Club's major fund raising activity. Among other community contributions, proceeds from the Holiday House Tour are used for scholarship awards to Nonnewaug High School students.

The 67 club members share friendships, love of creativity, cultural activities, and a commitment to community service. Meetings are held at 12:00 PM the first Monday of the month from September through May. Special interest activity groups such as Literary, Fine Arts and Crafts, and Antique Study also meet during the month.

The Woman's Club of Woodbury is a member of the Greater Federation of Women's Clubs, both State and International.

The Woodbury Club is a sponsor of the 2008-2010 State Project, Veteran's Oasis, a "safe environment" in which homecoming veterans, male and female, may gather, reorient themselves, and plan for their future. The Chancellors at all of the CT State Colleges, including the Community Colleges, agreed to make space available on their campuses for meeting places that will become resource centers for the Veterans as they transition from their war experiences. Fund raising projects will help support this State Project.

Area women who are interested in more information about joining the Woman's Club of Woodbury may direct their inquires to P. O. Box 1014, Woodbury, CT 06798.
Membership or general inquiries may also be e-mailed to us.
