A bit about our history: On Oct 15, 1914, seven women held the first meeting of their new club in the upstairs room of the Alpine Town Hall. They called themselves “The Ladies Aid Society”. A few years later, the name has changed to the “Alpine Woman’s Club”. The initial membership was small in number but very ambitious. Their purpose was to civilize this rural community and bring music and culture to the area. Mary Marshall was their first President. Marshall Way, located off of Alpine Blvd, was named to honor the Marshall family. For further information about the Club and our Centennial Celebration, please contact Carlette at 619-445-2055 firstname.lastname@example.org
The Alpine Woman's Club was organized in October, 1914.The objectives of the Club are to promote the social, civic, educational and cultural advancement of the citizens of Alpine and to work with other organizations toward that end. We meet the third Tuesday of the month (September through June) at noon.
Everyone is welcome to join us!
The Alpine Woman’s Club monthly luncheon for September is on Tuesday, the 16th at 12:00 noon. The Club celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2014, and our goal of having 100 members has been achieved, but we are still growing! Please come and enjoy good food, learn about the Club, and make new friends. Open to all East County women. The Club is located at 2156 Alpine Blvd., Alpine, CA 91901.
