Meetings start at 7:00pm in the POA Poolhouse. Membership is open to all female members of the community. Dues are $15 for the year. The club has several ongoing fund-raising projects: Lockwood Folly cookbooks for $10; Lockwood Folly holiday ornaments for $12; and Value Attraction Guide Books for both the Wilmington ($25) and Myrtle Beach ($20) areas. You need not be a club member to purchase these items which will make great gifts.


The proceeds from our dues and projects are then turned into donations to several local non-profit organizations such as: Supply Elementary, Cedar Grove Middle School, Brunswick Family Assistance, LGA annual charity golf tournament, Hope Harbor, and many more. The more the community supports the Women's Club, the more we can support these worthwhile causes.

 

We look forward to seeing many of you at our upcoming meetings. If you have questions and/or suggestions regarding the Women’s Club, give Gerry a call at 842-6999.
