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 alpinewomansclub@aol.com
