by Phyllis Chapman, Posted 9/13/14 – Sierra Madre Woman’s Club invites women throughout the area to attend their Membership Tea on Wednesday, September 24, 1:00pm, at Essick House, their historic clubhouse, at 550 W. Sierra Madre Blvd. An afternoon of enjoyment is planned with the opportunity to learn about membership in this busy, caring group.
They hold daytime meetings monthly on the 2nd Wednesday, and some months, a tea meeting on the 4th Wednesday. Programs are presented at each meeting. In addition they host special club and community events. Their Craftsman building is also available to rent. At the rear of the clubhouse they operate their Wistaria Thrift Shop, considered one of the best in the Valley, special for both bargain and treasure seeker.
Founded in 1907, the club has a long tradition of community service and generous philanthropy giving. Yearly, they donate to a list of worthy causes voted by members, plus scholarships to graduating high school seniors. This past year the scholarships totaled $6,000. They are longtime members of the Federation of Womens Clubs, learning and sharing with other groups.
The club offers its members a warm fellowship and an opportunity to make lasting friendships. For more information about the Club or about attending the Tea, please call 626-355-3928 or 626-355-8979.
