Business meeting

2022 Cardinal Strut Race:  Club members participated in the 2022 Cardinal Strut Race on March 19,2022, at Long Leaf Park. The race is a fundraiser to provide financial assistance to “Children’s Cancer Journey.” The WWC donated eight boxes of glass straws with cleaning brushes for a raffle drawing to help raise funds for the cause. These glass straws are environmentally reusable and recyclable and were very much appreciated. Ann Kirby, Harvin Quidas, Dorothy Hollis, Vicki Daughtery, Fay Hall, Carol Query, and Ida Newton worked the table to pass out shirts to the 655 entrees for the event.

This event was a safe, very rewarding, and a most enjoyable event to reach out and participate in and to “Make A Difference” with the Wilmington, New Hanover Co., Pender Co., and Brunswick Co. families who face many challenges through such an emotional time for children with cancer and their families. Club members met several cancer survivors who participated in the event along with their parents and friends. Making a difference and helping women and children were achieved and are always part of the WWC’s goals.

The Wilmington Woman’s Club held a baby shower at its May 24, 2021, meeting for the Boys and Girls Home in Lake Waccamaw. All of the collected items will go to the Janet Mitchell Winstead Lake House II, a trauma-focused sanctuary certified temporary lodging for girls who are in the custody of department of social services and are either pregnant or already parenting a child.

For their babies and/or toddlers, these young mothers need all of the same items that any other mother would need. Twenty-eight of the club members collected items that babies and/or toddlers need on a daily basis. Among the many items were diapers, baby monitors, diaper disposal bags, shampoo, powder, baby wash, bottles, diaper rash cream, teething rings, snack cups, sleepers, blankets, towels, and more.

The club also made a $245 donation to Lake House II to purchase additional items.

On April 23, members of the Wilmington Woman's Club stopped by eight fire stations and presented the firefighters with a variety of baked goodies. They also thanked the firefighters for their service, expressing appreciation for all they do to protect families, homes, places of worship, and all the businesses that provide a variety of services to the community.

The Wilmington Woman’s Club strives to improve the community through projects in the arts, civic engagement and outreach, education and libraries, environment, and health and wellness. Membership is open to any civic-minded woman.
