The Washington Grove Woman’s Club
Despite the pandemic, we were able to continue the long tradition of the spring Flower Show in a virtual format. If you have not had the chance to see it yet, the link is:

Bring Your Own Porch?
Our annual Progressive Porch Party, scheduled for June 18th, has been cancelled. However, we are exploring the possibility of having a Zoom event instead. Everyone would be on their own porch, or in their own home, with their own snacks and drinks. The evening would feature a guest speaker and then opened conversation via Zoom. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please email either Joan Mahaffey ([email protected]) or Marilynn Frey ([email protected]). We will let you know how the plans are progressing and send you an invitation as the idea progresses ??.
We are Still Working on the new Town Directory
Despite the odds, we are still trying to publish the 2020-2022 Washington Grove Directory. It has been a challenge this time and selling the ads that support our Directory has been particularly difficult. If you have a business or you have contacts with businesses, please contact Marilynn Frey ([email protected]) to get a signup form. Most businesses provide a simple business card.
After the Quarantine Ends, You Can Rent Our Clubhouse!
Once life returns to normal, this historic clubhouse will be available for rent to Town residents from mid-March to mid-December. It is ideal for parties, showers, wedding receptions, meetings, or other such events. Our rates are reasonable, and members of the Club receive a significant discount. For more information about this lovely facility, please contact Cynthia Werts (301-926-1668) or Joli McCathran (301-869-5358).
Joining the Woman’s is easy
The Woman’s Club 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.
Your dues make it possible for us to support Town programs such as The Summer In the Parks, the Acorn Library and the Holiday Show. They also let us host our annual Town events like the January White Elephant Sale, the February Chili Supper, Project Linus, the Spring Egg Hunt, the May Flower Show, the June Progressive Porch Party, the September Pot Luck Supper and guest speakers. Plus, all year-round we collect for our Community Outreach programs.
