The College Woman’s Club of Westfield invites all area women to an informational get-together on Thursday, Oct. 1, at 7:30 p.m. at the home of president Lynn Adams, 852 Ramapo Way in Westfield. The event is free to prospective members and includes pairings of wines and appetizers from Italy, France and California. Guests will have an opportunity to meet fellow members and hear about upcoming events that support the club’s mission to support higher education for women.

Founded in 1917, the College Woman’s Club awards over $40,000 in scholarships each year to young women from Westfield on the basis of academics, leadership and financial need.  The club’s intergenerational membership meets periodically throughout the year for social and fundraising purposes.  CWC also sponsors several interest groups, including book clubs, bridge, current events discussion groups, and museum visits. 

Membership is open to all area women with a college degree. Dues are $50 ($35 for seniors), half of which goes to support the scholarship program. To register for the October 1 event, please contact Jean Erickson at 908-654-7532 or jerickson880@verizon.net. For additional information and a membership application, please visit www.cwclubwestfield.com
