In 1962, a group of young women interested in serving their community and stimulating their minds while enjoying a program geared towards fun and friendships formed the Junior Women’s Club of Lakewood. Over the years, the Club’s scope has widened but remained true to its original mission. It is a philanthropic organization that sponsors fundraisers throughout the year, with proceeds going to Lakewood organizations, the Scholarship Program, and members of our community.
In 2011, the group made a change to the name of the organization to better reflect the membership, clarify its position in the community and eliminate confusion with a perceived affiliation with Junior League. Going forward, the Lakewood Women’s Club will continue to be an opening, welcoming group that strives to serve it’s members and it’s community.
