Oregon City Womans Club
Back issues of our monthly newsletter are now available - check them out!
We will be joining with The Angels in the Outfield and the Oregon City Optimist Club again this year for the 5K Healing Hearts Run/Walk. Watch for more information and a link to sign up. A great all-ages, family friendly event to raise funds for children in need in our community and those affected by domestic violence. New this year - bring you worn out sneakers to be shredded and recycled into playground cover chips.

Collecting - Stuffed animals and quilts for The Children's Center
Feeding children in need on the weekends
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...
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...
Friends Involved in Dog Outreach (and Cats). AniMeals home delivery for Meals on Wheels recipients.
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."
Meetings and events
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.
