Who are we?
The members of the Women’s Club of Inverness, Illinois, are a diverse group, both in age and background. The demands of family and career cause each member to participate at different levels of involvement. But all are committed to the purpose of helping women, children, seniors and those most needy in our community. We have strong roots in our past. In 1963, a group of women from the Village of Inverness began meeting in each other’s homes—providing a way for new residents to become acquainted with other women who lived in the area. In September of 1965, the Women’s Club of Inverness began meeting regularly and in November of that year, the Club joined the Greater Federation of Women’s Clubs and Illinois Greater Federation of Women’s Clubs. This association continued until 1999 when the members decided to focus on charitable involvement that would more directly benefit local community organizations and voted to withdraw from GFWC and GFWC-IL. To this day, the Women’s Club of Inverness remains dedicated to its original objectives and is proud to continue its outstanding philanthropic endeavors within the community. The Women’s Club of Inverness is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
What are our activities?
Not only does the Women’s Club of Inverness have strong roots in the past, but its members also work enthusiastically to maintain- and improve – the vitality and effectiveness of the club. Throughout the year, members attend educational, inspirational or entertaining meetings, connecting with other women who also have a desire to reach out to those in need. As members organize and facilitate two major events—our Fall Event in November and our Fashion Show in April—they participate on committees or make material contributions. The proceeds from these two major fundraisers allow the Club to make financial donations that support local students and charities. All meetings and committee activities create superb opportunities for women to enjoy times of camaraderie while helping to improve the lives of people in our community.
