The Woman’s Club of Raleigh events are a great way to make connections that inspire personal and professional growth, support our community, and enrich lives. Some events are open to nonmembers.

International Outreach CSP is asking members to bring non-perishable food items to the Sept. 10 Showcase to benefit Catholic Parish Outreach. Money donations also accepted. (Checks should be made out to CPO) $30 feed a family of 4 for a week! Catholic Parish Outreach is the largest food pantry in the Triangle. It is celebrating 41 years of serving the community by providing emergency food assistance and more. CPO largely serves many members of our international community, such as refugees and immigrants who are referred to them by churches, schools, medical providers, etc.

We will be delivering our donations to CPO on our service day, Sept. 18. We will meet at WCR and welcome any members who would like to help with deliveries. We will have a sign-up sheet at the Showcase. If you have questions, please contact Sara Brower/Barbara Hocutt, co-chairs.

FOUR NO TRUMP BRIDGE: The first meeting of No Trump Bridge is Wednesday, September 4, 2019, at 10 a.m. at The Woman’s Club in the Stephenson Dining room and the Board Room.  If you have a table let  me know.  If you would like to play and don’t have a table of 4 to play, let me know.  There may be several players who want to play and we can make up a table with you.  If not, we can always use substitutes to play in someone’s absence.  It seems that substitutes usually find a place at a table.  Anyway,  we are a sociable group who enjoy playing.  If you don’t know how to play, we will help you learn.  We play on the first Wednesday of  every month during the club year for two hours ending at 12:00 pm.  Contact: barbararhocutt85@gmail.com or 919-673-4485.

The Woman’s Club began when Mrs. Elvira Evelyna Worth Moffit gathered a group of ladies together in the State Library Reading Room for the sole purpose of organizing a Woman’s Club. The Woman’s Club came into being with the hope and belief that it could by organization better serve the city and community in which it exists. Helen Primrose McPherson, Past President, 1926

President’s Project

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your President for the 2018-2020 Administration. The Woman’s Club of Raleigh has served the community for 114 years, and I am very honored to be following in the footsteps of some amazing women.

So many choices, so many worthy organizations to choose from, but, because children are near and dear to my heart, for these next two years, my President’s Project will be focused on education. Children are our future! My background in education has enabled me to see things from a different perspective. And, giving children all the tools that we can to help them achieve should be our mission. Children, as we know, don’t all learn at the same levels, but they all need to receive the same opportunity to learn.

We’re looking forward to these next two years and hope you join us on the journey!
