Why WOW?

spacer What's Going On?

WOW seeks to provide its 225 members the opportunity to learn about their community, support local charitable and civic activities, and socialize in an atmosphere of friendliness and goodwill. Aside from the luncheon meetings held monthly from September through May, WOW members are active in 19 clubs and activities throughout each month. In addition, several annual activities are planned where members can contribute their time and expertise or enjoy social outings with other members. Examples of these are day trips, cruises, participation in the Festival of Trees, and fund raising activities.


Our next luncheon is in September.

A Word from Our President

Dear Ladies,mary

At the May luncheon it was my privilege to be installed as the new president of West Orange Women.  This is not my first time as president, and I know I will enjoy it just as much now as I did the first time because, WOW is a wonderful group.
Now that summer is here, we will not be meeting the months of June, July, and August.  The Executive Board will be meeting to make plans for the 2014=2015 year.  If you have any suggestions as to luncheon venues, programs, additional activities, etc., please call me or one of the members of the Board.  This list of board members is found elsewhere on this website.  All suggestions are welcome.  New members sometimes have unique ideas which is how we got our re-gifting auction in January.
In the meantime, enjoy your summer, and we will meet again at the September luncheon.
