Who We Are
The Hollis Woman’s Club is part of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, the oldest and largest volunteer women’s organization in the world. Our club was organized in 1906 and has been active in the community ever since. We have approximately 130 members.
The objectives of the club, as stated in our by-laws, are fourfold: Social Activities, Educational Needs, Civic Support, and Philanthropic Donations.
When and Where We Meet
Our general monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month (September-May) at 9am at the Lawrence Barn, Depot Road, Hollis.
Babysitting is available at the meeting for $5 per family.
We hold a social hour prior to the business meeting at 9:45am. Our November meeting is typically a Potluck Supper, held at the Barn. Our May meeting is a luncheon held at a local restaurant or hotel.
We have several activity groups that meet on a regular basis. New groups can form at any time based on member interests. Currently, our activity groups include:
