ABOUT US

    The object of this club is to aid in the betterment of civic conditions in the community and to give to the needs of the community as we build friendships through our fundraising and volunteering activities.

    The Clermont Woman’s Club meets the first Tuesday of the month from October through May at the Clubhouse for tea and entertainment, with a meeting following.  The board meets on the Monday before the monthly meeting.  Our Club supports various organizations with our members’ time and/or donations of money and useful items. 

Our fund-raising events include: 
  • FASHION SHOW, held in the month of either October or November 
  • PURSE AUCTION, takes place in the month of February
  • FAMILY EXPO, during the month of an event featuring many vendors of interest to women and including several door prizes
  • PLAY BUNCO, held every second Tuesday of the month and each month a chosen charity we support is awarded with the proceeds.
