OCWC is supporting The Angels in the Outfield in operating a Holiday Store for families impacted by Domestic Violence in our community. Donations may be dropped off through December 8, 2018. Mothers will be able to "shop" for three gifts for each child in the family, have them wrapped and ready to go under the tree, at no cost to the family. Click below for more information...
The Oregon City Woman's Club meets on the second Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 11:00 a.m. In addition to a luncheon at a local restaurant the agenda includes a business meeting, speakers and special programs.
Making A Difference
For more than 100 years...
The only requirement for membership is an interest to joining with a group of women interested in helping others. Our motto, "Friendship and Service to Others", says it all...
Since the first meeting on April 1, 1903 the members of the Oregon City Woman's Club have worked together on civic improvement projects and have raised funds to support local and national non-profit agencies working in healthcare, human services, animal protection and other areas of need in our city, county and state. Formed around the idea of women coming together to bring about change through group action, a decade before women won the right to vote in Oregon, founding member Mrs. Eva Emery Dye stated, "like the public school the Woman's Club is a school in citizenship for all women."
Each month we collect items for a specific local non-profit agency. Donations brought to the monthly luncheons are given to programs benefiting such causes as local food programs, animal shelters and early reading initiatives...
