Community Service Programs

We have six (6) Community Service Programs: Art, Conservation, Education, Home Life, International Outreach, and Public Issues. These core program committees provide vehicles for organizing our volunteer efforts. Each committee chairwoman coordinates with various organizations and agencies in the community. She funnels their volunteer or donation needs to the club members serving on her committee or to the entire club when necessary. These committees are also ways we connect with each other to network and build friendships.
