The Palos Park Woman’s Club was founded in 1902 and has been a driving force in the many developments in the Village of Palos Park. With a current membership of 73, the club’s purpose is to promote cultural, environmental, educational, wellness and civic interest as a charitable organization. The Woman’s Club is currently in charge of the annual Sell It Again Palos and Blood Drive, and offers yearly scholarships and much more.
The club meets the second Thursday of the month, September through April, except in January, at the Palos Park Presbyterian Church with an installation dinner at an area restaurant in May. The meetings start at 10 a.m. Doors open at 9:30 am and include a business meeting, a luncheon and entertainment. For membership information, visit this website’s membership link.
