A Legacy of Elegance Since 1923
The Akron Woman's City Club was established in 1923 as a place where women could meet to discuss subjects of interest, hold seminars for education, promote charitable events, and serve as a social center and meeting place for women of Akron. Today it remains one of the oldest and largest clubs for women in America.
The beauty of our house is order.
The blessing of our house is contentment.
The glory of our house is hospitality.
During winter months, if the Akron Public Schools are closed, members should call the Club to determine whether or not the Club is also closed.
CHARITY OF THE MONTH
When you are clearing out winter clothing save warm usable clothes for our Stand Down for Veterans (men and women) collection in August.
In April we will be collecting new/gently used handbags for Access. The Mother, Daughter and Friends Banquet, the first part of May, is sponsoring this project — HANDBAGS OF HOPE.
We continue to collect old prescription glasses for third world countries.
Thank you so much for your support.
SPOTLIGHT ON: AWCC NEEDLEWORK SECTION!
A big thanks to all who donated to our "Giving Tree" at Christmas! We were able to donate over 100 pairs of gloves and 2 dozen knit hats to Portage Path School.
A special thanks to the Needlework Section who knitted many of the hats and gloves. You warmed their hands and hearts!
AWCC PLAYMAKERS UNIT!
Our annual Ettiquette Tea was held in May for a group of 5th grade girls from Portage Path and Helen Arnold schools who have completed a course in ettiquette at their respective schools. The girls were adorned with "fascinators" made by Playmakers and coordinated by Robbie Williams, Portage Path Counselor as part of their special occasion attire. The tea was concluded with a tour of our clubhouse and a lovely time was had by all!
If you would like to help in assisting the teachers at Portage Path, please contact coordinator Barb Jurkovic.
14th Annual Policeman's Appreciation Dinner
A big THANK YOU to the spouses, members, Board of Trustees and employees for supporting and helping make the Fourteenth Annual Policeman’s Buffet a success. Special thanks to Mrs. Wishnek, Chef Jon, Chef Russell, the Servers, Courtney and Charlotte for their help during the evening. We served over 115 women and men of the Akron Police Depart-ment —a 15% increase over last year’s attendance! Mini tours of the house were given by members and a canine officer put his partner through his paces. All of the officers expressed appreciation and gratitude to us for putting on this event over the years and our support of them.
