Who We Are

Did you know there has been a Woman’s Club in Allendale for more than 100 years? On December 13, 1918, the Community Club was founded as a Woman’s Auxiliary to the Allendale Board of Trade. There were 20 members who were vital in the creation of Memorial Park as a memorial to local soldiers who had served in the First World War. They raised funds for the creation of our library and lobbied for street signs and street lights in town.

Today the Allendale Woman’s Club is a volunteer service organization comprised of diverse and talented women who are interested in making a difference in our community. We dedicate our efforts toward worthy causes both within our community and throughout the state. Many of our annual fundraisers and activities have become eagerly awaited events, such as the Spring Fashion Show, Town–Wide Garage Sale and Holiday Breakfast.
