Why Does WOW Exist?


What's Going On?

WOW seeks to provide its 225+ members the opportunity to learn about their community, support local charitable and civic activities, and socialize in an atmosphere of friendliness and goodwill. Aside from the luncheon meetings held monthly from September through May, WOW members are active in 25 clubs and activities throughout each month. In addition, several annual activities are planned where members can contribute their time and expertise or enjoy social outings with other members. Examples of these are day trips, cruises, participation in the Festival of Trees, and fund raising activities.

Noel McGuigan........A Word from Our President 

Hello Ladies,
I hope this finds you all healthy and happy as things are starting to  open up a little bit.  It will be so wonderful to get back to our activities. Luncheons will be a problem until restaurants can increase the percentage of diners they can accommodate. Remember we still need to be cautious.

We were so happy to hear that you are all enjoying our greeting cards. Please know we are always thinking of you.  If anyone is in need of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact one of the Board Members and we will do our best to help you.

Please remember our charities at this difficult time. We appreciate your generous donations and salute the ladies who have been donating packed lunches to Matthew's Hope. As a club we have always been so generous to those in need.

I am missing all of you and look forward to our first luncheon after the pandemic has passed.
