Members of the Worthington Circle of the Child Conservation League founded The Worthington Women’s Club on May 24, 1932. The objectives of the new club were to promote friendship among members, provide opportunities to participate in organized interest groups and in the social, intellectual and civic affairs of the community.
These objectives continue today. Even though the roles of women are more varied than in 1932, women still need and enjoy a place to relax with friends and pursue interests outside their home and work. Worthington Women’s Club offers a wide variety of interest groups to meet that need.
Interest groups meet monthly. Included are: Art Study, Bowling, several Card Groups, Bird Watching, two Book Clubs, Current Events, Creative Needlework, three Mah-Jongg Groups, a scrabble group and several luncheon groups. Interest group contact information and schedule is found under the Interest Group tab.
General meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of the months of September, October, January, February, March & April. These meetings include a guest speaker, a business meeting and a dessert. Special luncheon meetings are in December and May.
Because of Covid we are still requesting reservations for all our General Meetings and Holiday Luncheons. However, we will resume members being able to invite guests and you are encouraged to do so!
To make reservations, email Peggy Foster at Pfoster62@sbcglobal.net or call 614-395-2228.
Masks will be worn at all meetings when not eating or drinking.
The Worthington Women’s Club contributes to local charities which promote the quality of life in Worthington.
For fiscal year 2020-2021, WWC donated a total of $1450.00 to the following organizations: SOS, Dress for Success, Griswold Art Center, Worthington Historical Society, and McConnell Art Center.
WWC also maintains the Historical Signs which appear at the four entrances to the original “Old Worthington.”
As part of the Worthington Bicentennial Celebration, WWC contributed an Ohio Historical Marker depicting the settlement of Worthington. The marker is located at the High street side of Griswold Center.

I believe in Worthington, in the pioneer ideals and traditions upon which she was founded: in the strength and purposes in which she endures, in the hopes and ambitions which lie ahead.
I believe in the people of Worthington and the women of our Club and pledge myself to those things which will make a greater Worthington.
I shall plant a garden of friendship here and pluck from it flowers of love and service which never fade.
I will look up to the stars above and make them my desire.
I will be strong, and generous, and kind.
~Marie Vandegrift , President 1942-1943
