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.

Still on Track

In October 2022 an extracurricular Club event was held. The President’s Invitational Event (acronym ‘PIE’) was initiated by President Mary Lou Luebbe-Gearhart with a visit to the Ohio Railway Museum in Worthington and a ride on #64, with slogan ‘Still on Track’ after 90 years! See pics below.

The 1932 objectives of WWC 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, Card Groups, Bird Watching, Book Clubs, Current Events, Dominoes, Creative Needlework, Mah Jongg Groups, Scrabble, Happy Hour group, Travel, Walking 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 (5th), February, March & April.  These meetings include a guest speaker, a business meeting and a dessert. Special luncheon meetings are in December and May.

To make reservations, email or phone Barb Keister.

To Join the meeting on Zoom email Karen German.

You’ll find member contact information in your WWC Yearbook.

Our Creed

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 its 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
