Why Does WOW Exist?


What's Going On?

WOW seeks to provide its 150+ 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.

Hello Ladies!
If you missed the September Luncheon, you missed great food and an opportunity to mingle with friends you haven’t seen for a while.  October’s Luncheon will be even better, so sign up today.

Ann G

Our dear friend Ann Guerriero passed away on Tuesday, September 12, 2023 surrounded by her loving family.  Even through illness her courage, strength, and humor were an inspiration. Ann has made so many wonderful friends in WOW over the years beginning in 2001.  We served on the board more than once together in different roles during those years and have fond memories of wonderful luncheons, fashion shows, programs, and most of all lasting friendships. Ann's friendship was a true blessing and we will always remember her grace and beauty with a smile.  She lived life to the fullest and will be missed by her family, friends and neighbors.On behalf of her family, if you would like to share condolences and special memories please click here. Ann June Guerriero.
