THE WOMAN'S CLUB OF ORANGE
established in 1915, celebrated their 100th anniversary in February 2015. We are in the Orange County California area, a philanthropic, friendly group 200 members strong. We are proud to be a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs International, the California Federation of Women's Clubs and CFWC Orange District. GFWC is one of the largest women's organizations in the world with clubs in forty-five countries. In the United States and Territory of Puerto Rico alone, there are nearly 586,000 members in 12,500 clubs.
We are a SERVICE ORGANIZATION
The Woman's Club of Orange is a valuable community resource. Our chairmen and their committees work to provide educational, recreational and cultural activities and raise funds to help support many worthwhile charities and philanthropies. Each spring The Woman's Club of Orange sponsors a Flower Show, open to the public and completely free of charge. The Annual Flower Show has been an ongoing tradition since 1937.
Our club contributions and support of Career & Technical Education Scholarships, Richland High School Scholarships, literacy programs, women's health issues or helping victims of domestic violence represent only a few of the projects we have successfully undertaken. Our contributions of time and funds, when combined with other Federated Clubs in General Federation (National), California Federation (State) and Orange District (County) are powerful indeed.
We are a SOCIAL ORGANIZATION
The Woman's Club of Orange has a number of special-interest groups known as Sections which meet monthly to pursue their own goals. Current sections consist of Book, Crafts, Garden, Health, Photography and a variety of game and card groups as detailed on the "sections" page. New sections may be formed at the request of interested members.

At that time, members enjoy a catered lunch, an entertaining program and business meeting which includes chairmen reports on various projects and committee activities. Guests are always welcome however reservations are required. Simply contact our membership chairman for information.
