WHAT WE DO

Our members participate in six Community Service Programs (CSP):
Arts
Conservation
Education
Home Life
International Outreach
Public Issues

Each of these CSP's have club members who serve as leaders in the capacity of chair and co-chair. Each CSP group hosts one of the monthly general meetings, selecting a program speaker that pertains to that particular CSP's area of interest. 

Each CSP chair and co-chair encourages her members to participate either within the group or individually as volunteers in related community projects. 

Monetary support of various organizations or projects that enhance and improve the community may also be an option. Club fundraisers are held throughout the year in order to generate the monies required to continue our charitable work. Our  primary focus is in regard to support of the local community.
