The Washington Grove Woman’s Club

We Began in 1926
Our history with Washington Grove goes back to the Camp Meeting days, before we even were a Town. In those early days, we provided the necessities and nicities that the Camp Meeting Association could not. We paid to bring electricity to McCathran Hall, to keep fresh gravel on the paths and to establish many of the traditions that continue today. We started the May Flower Show, and our September Pot Luck Dinner. We like to breakup the mid-winter doldrums with our January White Elephant fundraiser and our February Chili Supper. Sadly, due to scheduling conflicts, this year we won’t be able to have our annual Porch Party, but we hope to hold this popular event again next year.

After the Town incorporated in 1937, our role changed, and today we focus mainly on our Outreach programs. The Clubhouse porch serves as a drop-off point for our many projects or you can leave them in the painted can on Wendy Weisbard’s porch at 119 Grove Road. You bring them and we’ll sort where they go! Checks are always appreciated too, just put in the memo field if you want your donation to go to a specific project and mail to The Woman’s Club, PO Box 354, Washington Grove, MD 20880.

Also, our delightful Clubhouse is available to rent from mid-March through late November. It’s perfect for smaller events of 30 to 40 people, where McCathran Hall might be too large. It’s ideal for bridal showers, wedding receptions, baby showers, meetings and other get togethers. There’s always a 50% discount for Club members!

If you’re intested in joining the Club or renting the Clubhouse, please contact Cynthia Werts at 301-926-1668 or [email protected]. Our dues are a modest $15 per year and can be paid at any event, or by sending a check to The Woman’s Club of Washington Grove, to PO Box 354, Washington Grove, MD 20880.
