The purpose of the Monroe Women's Club is to promote educational and
philanthropic community service and to provide members with the opportunity
for personal enrichment, leadership experience and social interaction. It is a
non-profit, non-sectarian, non-political organization.
The Monroe Women's Club is open to any woman age 18 and up who wishes to promote the civic, cultural,
educational and social growth of the Monroe community. There is no residency requirement and no age
maximum for membership.
Our members complete both small and large group community service projects in a variety of interest areas including:
- Conservation - Gardening
- Current Affairs
- Home Life
- State Project
Socials: for members only; for couples
Annual dues are paid in June or upon joining. We have two levels of membership: Active and Associate.
Active members choose to attend monthly meetings and participate in most volunteer and fundraising activities.
Associate members attend meetings and participate in volunteering when they can. Dues are the same for both types of membership.
Meetings are held on the first Tuesday each month, September through June, at 7:30 p.m. at the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library, 733 Monroe Turnpike.
The Meeting Room is located on the lower level of the Library - please use rear entrance OR a member's home.
(see schedule of meetings and activities).
Active members can participate in Club Projects, Ways & Means, and State Projects.
The Club sponsors the Holiday Tree Lighting on the Monroe Green. We also sell poinsettias and luminaries for the holiday season.
Members of Connecticut Junior Women, Inc. have chosen to adopt a State Project for a four year long term affiliation.
The current State Project is Manes in Motion.
