The Litchfield Women’s Club is an independent nonprofit community service organization that began as the Litchfield Jaycees Women in the late 1970s. The group became inactive, yet the friendships remained. In the fall of 1988, the organization regrouped and is now known as the Litchfield Women’s Club.
The mission of the club is to bring the women of all ages in Litchfield together to share their interests, talents and enthusiasm to benefit the community and enable personal growth for its members. We develop and provide programs to educate, interest and inspire LWC members and the community-at-large.
LWC encourages each member to develop her own talents and potential through its many projects, and welcome new initiatives and contributions from all members. Annual projects include Santa’s Workshop, The Easter Bunny Breakfast (to benefit the club’s scholarship fund), Candidate’s Night, and Roadside Clean-Ups. We provide holiday food baskets and meals, sponsor clothing and blood drives, and lend support and assistance to other Litchfield organizations as well as the schools and library in our community.
Scholarships are awarded each year to deserving Litchfield high school graduates, through an annual scholarship program which encompasses academic and civic achievements, with a particular focus on community service.
The LWC is not, however, strictly business! Our members enjoy social outings throughout the year as well as two annual dinner events.
Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month in the library at the Litchfield Middle School (LMS), located on McElwain Drive in Litchfield, NH, at 7:00 pm from September through May. Meetings are open to the public, and new members are always welcome! Whether you can devote two hours a month or two hours a year, your contributions to LWC will be appreciated. Feel free to drop in a meeting to see firsthand what LWC is all about!
Dues are $15 per year and are pro-rated for members who join during the course of the year.
